Lady Sovereign: Public Warning
Buy! - (Def Jam)
The sassy British grime-rapper’s US debut album blends busy, urgent production with her tricky lyrical flow delivered with an in-your-face British working-class accent. Her wickedly funny lyrics might seem like nothing more than bratty fun, but her irreverent wit often skewers sexism and class snobbery. Fans might be disappointed to find that many of the best songs already appeared on her earlier EPs and singles, though some are reworked here and there’s still plenty of worthwhile new stuff included. 10/31/2006 - Don Yates
