Little Simz Continues To Evolve With New EP, 'Drop 7'

February 09, 2024

Fresh off her 'Best Hip-Hop Act' win at the MOBOs, Little Simz has released a brand-new project, titled Drop 7. These seven new tracks find Simz in her experimental bag, trying out different sounds and styles that extend far beyond the hip-hop remit she's known for.

She dropped the first instalment of the EP series in 2014, and this latest drop displays why, 10 years later, she's at the summit of the UK scene. Progressive and daring, Drop 7's producer Jakwob uses soft Jersey Club bounce at points and Brazil's baile funk drum patterns at others. And throughout, Simz seems at home as she flexes her pen with her typical dynamism.

Simbi was nominated for other awards at the MOBOs, showing how strong her last year has been. She's also been nominated for three BRIT Awards: Album Of The Year, Artist Of The Year, and Hip-Hop/Grime/Rap Act.
