Little Simz makes her way to the Union Transfer this month. The U.K. rapper, singer, and actress released her latest album last year, Stillness in Wonderland. Since then, Little Simz has been climbing the U.K. charts and releasing mixtapes for a while.
Simbi Aijkawo, her stage name Little Simz, got her start in the U.K. while acting. Her first mixtape, STRATOSPHERE, in 2010 earned positive reviews. Little Simz makes music not suited for the radio while perfect for indie rap lovers. Little Simz has drawn comparisons to Syd, Anderson. Paak, and Duckwrth. Stillness in Wonderland, Little Simz latest album, peaked at number 20 on U.K. Indie Albums Chart. Stillness in Wonderland was some of Little Simz best work. The production of the whole album was beautifully put together. Not many artists have what Little Simz has. Her standout song, Poison Ivy, had a very soulful yet mellow vibe to it.
As Little Simz continues to break certain stereotypes in music, she will become the greatest rapper this generation has every seen. The ways she sings her lyrics mean something. Her mixtapes have been known to bear her soul on the tracks. If you are in the neighborhood looking for a fresh new artist different from the mainstream of the radio, check out Little Simz when she drops by!
