Sampa The Great
The Return

Sampa The Great has been cusping on stardom for a while now. With her debut LP proper The Return, the Sydney-based rapper might just break through. The Return is a barnstorming album, one on which Sampa Tembo draws strength from both her Southern African roots and hip-hop history. Cuts like ‘Final Form’ swagger with the confidence and class of The Blueprint-era Jay-Z. The production credits here ain’t too shabby either - Silentjay, Kwes Darko and Clever Austin are among those who contribute beats on The Return.

Sampa The Great
Birds And The BEE9 

Born in Zambia, based in Sydney, she prefers coming at her albums from the point of view of a mixtape, hence a wild mix of songwriting, poetics and calls for social action over hip-hop, soul, samba all tied together within the web of modern pop. In many respects an album that simultaneously appeals to those looking for the next Kendrick Lamar and for a future Mercury Music prize winner ahead of the crowd, we’re mixing up Nina Simone’s classicism and Lauryn Hill’s urban beauty.
