Remember Speech Debelle? The female rapper who won the Mercury Prize for her album Freedom of Speech in 2009 and then seemed to disappear into thin air? Well the 26-year-old south Londoner is back on the scene with her new free downloadable single, Studio Backpack Rap which will be released on her old label Big Dada.
Now here’s the confusing part, Dabelle openly blamed Big Dada records for her poor album sales, saying that it was down to the poor distribution on their part and then decided to leave the label. Now she’s back with them, which we’re assuming means they have solved their issues, and it’s like nothing ever happened!
Well, we still think there’s something Speech Debelle is hiding from us, but nevertheless we’re looking forward to her new material.
Watch the video above and tell us what you think!
