A boss in a fucking dress!

The 25-year-old Simbi ‘Simz’ Ajikawo proves herself to be an exceptional MC on ‘GREY Area’. Her pointed lyrics combine perfectly with the juicy basslines and funky beat. On this third album, the London rapper enters into battle with her mental health and takes a swing at the society that wants to rein her (as woman) in: ‘I don’t need stress, that stress/ I’m a boss in a fucking dress’ is to be heard in ‘Boss’. For the r&b and soul-vibe on the album, Simbi called upon Michael Kiwanuka, Little Dragon and fantastic up-and-coming singer Cleo Sol.

Her ‘no nonsense’ approach impresses. Kendrick Lamar and JAY Z already let us know that they’re fans. Rightly so too! ‘GREY Area’ is one of the albums of 2019 now already.

In the press ‘Introspection mélancolique mais optimiste d’une rappeuse anglaise des plus douées.’ – Les Inrockuptibles

‘Veel beter wordt hiphop anno 2019 niet.’ - ***** De Morgen

‘Het krachtigst klinkt ze nog op ‘Boss’, een track die op geen enkele hiphopmixtape in 2019 zou mogen ontbreken. Wanneer de alweer moddervette baslijn van vaste producer indlo wegvalt bijt ze naar iedereen die haar credit weigert: ‘I don’t need that stress, that stress/ I’m a boss in a fucking dress’ We zouden het haast op een T-shirt zetten.’ **** De Standaard

‘‘I don’t want to be an overnight sensation/ I’m tryin’ to make a record that you can’t stop playin’’, klonk het nog op haar vorige plaat. Dit keer heeft ze prijs’- **** Knack Focus



Une énergie débordante, ainsi qu'une joie communicative. Ce fût une chouette expérience.
C'était dingue. Quelle prestance ! Yeah she was made for this shit ! Amazing Simz

Amazing show! Great Simz and her band. What a night!
Little Simz rules :) Mais le son était vraiment mauvais. Distorsion dans les aigus (criard). C'est un peu du gâchis.
Super gig.
