The future of Australian hip hop
A poet as well as a singer and a rapper; Sampa The Great has it all. Melbourne-via-Botswana-via-Zambia, she has come a long way and now her career is skyrocketing. In Australia, she’s undoubtably one of the most promising artists in the country’s fast-growing hip-hop scene. Just last year she won the “Australian Music Prize” with her new record Birds and the BEE9. Now it seems she has already outgrown the Down Under as Kendrick Lamar and Joey Bada$$ recognized her enormous talent by asking her as support act. Her African roots, the way she crosses hip-hop, soul, jazz, gospel and reggae… Looks like a match made in heaven with Couleur Café!
