I have next to zero knoweldge about global hip hop. Like many others from the class, I have heard of Sean Paul, M.I.A and other global artists that have made a name for themselves here in the United States. But I wanted to write on someone I hadn't heard of. I decided to google search female hip hop artists in the UK because I visitied London in 2005 and the music scene was so rich there that I knew someone would pop up. I stumbled upon a female hip hop artist named Ms. Dynamite. She is very well known throughout the UK and has won many Brit awards for her music. I sampled a number of her songs on YouTube and decided to post this one because it reminded me of Lauryn Hill's "Doo Wop."
This song is called " It Takes More." The tune is very reminiscent of 90's hip hop, though it is an early millennium song. I suggest that everyone look up the lyrics and take a listen.
