2015 was a great time to be a rap artist from the UK, as fans stateside gained a newfound appreciation for the Grime sound and how rising MCs from across the pond approach emceeing. Representing her country and ridiculously talented women spitters, Little Simz closes her already stellar year by releasing a surprise EP titled Age 101: Drop X.
The project features seven tracks and a bevy of guest appearances from Mick Jenkins, Isaiah Rashad, Kent Jamz of Overdoz., Jesse Boykins iii, and more. Read Little Simz’s thoughts on Age 101: Drop X below, where you can stream it guilt-free in in Wired Tracks. Here’s the download.
Firstly I just want to say thank you to everyone who has supported me thus far. This year has been a special one. After releasing my debut album I wanted to round up the year nice, felt right to release another Drop solely for the people who been on this journey with me. For those who are wondering why i called it Drop X instead of Drop 5, it’s simple this is my TENTH solo project. I know right, madting.
