Mary Anne is joined by London rapper Little Simz, ahead of her performance at the 6 Music Festival in Liverpool. Little Simz is 24-year-old Simbi Ajikawo and her latest album Age 101 is released on Friday the first of March via AWAL Recordings.
The album draws on neo-soul, deep funk and experimental pop, alongside her roots in hip-hop and grime. So far Simz has released 10 mixtapes and EPs and used her work to explore taking leaps of faith, learning from loss, building on gains, industry politics, a sense of self; and navigating success, disappointment, confusion and anxiety.
Last year, she featured on Gorillaz’ single ‘Garage Palace’ and toured with them for their Humanz Tour. She has also toured with Anderson .Paak and Lauryn Hill and received a nomination for Best Hip Hop Act and Best Female Act at the 2017 MOBO Awards
