Cha Ching

It's great when you hear sumpin' new, sumpin' really original. When I heard Lady Sovereign a few weeks ago, I had that feeling in seconds. She's an 18-year-old middle-class white girl from Britain - and among rappers, those criteria are quite rare. But damn, does this girl have skills! As part of the Brit-hop scene called "Grime," she raps about her diminutive stature, NOT having any bling, and even her dead cat:

"I don't have a cat it died/
Understandably i just cried/

You have to sample the Lady for yourself...
