Sampa The Great, songwriter/poet/singer/lyricist, returns with her first new release since signing to Big Dada dropping the sumptuous ‘Rhymes To The East’.
Debuting in 2015 with her ‘The Great Mixtape’, Sampa The Great has graced the stages supporting the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Thundercat and Hiatus Kaiyote. Speaking on ‘Rhymes To The East’, Sampa explains “It was a stand out track to me and one of the strongest lyrics I have captured to date… as soon as I heard this beat, I knew exactly what I wanted to say. I was immediately transported to the East.” And these are indeed the strongest lyrics Sampa delivers in a fine flow that rides the eastern influenced beat with ease.
Alongside the new single, Sampa will also be back on the stage through Oct/Nov and this time she’ll be headlining her own UK tour alongside dates supporting Joey Bada$$ on his own tour.
