Who doesn't love Ms. Dynamite?

Probably best known for her chart successes "Dy-Na-Mi-Tee" or "It Takes More" (not to mention the Mercury Prize she won in 2002, or her two Brit Awards and three MOBOs), there's a surprising number of people who aren't clued-up on her more underground efforts. Sure, she could sing sweet enough to make you all light-headed, but she's got BARS too. You may be aware of her guest spot on Redlight's hyper-London "What You Talking About?", without even realising it was her. And there's plenty more where that came from.

There are a lot of surprising turns in Ms. Dynamite's career, like "N.A.S.T.Y", her collab with the crew of the same name or her more politically-charged tracks. Even on her own solo ventures, she was never one to coast. Between the R&B and sweeter garage moments, were tough beats and a whipcrack ragga flow most MCs could only dream of.
