LocAL south london rapper Speech Debelle has recently been hailed as the Nex Big Thing.

(terribelle website)

Its the raw song about her father, Daddy’s Little Girl, that seems to be causing waves…

She’s been Discovered by Roots Manuva producer Wayne Lote whose produced her first (now Mercury winning!) album ‘Speech Therapy’.

Is it possible to find hyped up commercial success and still be a voice of the streets of Streatham? In some ways for sure, but its nothing like hearing raw talent in your own back yard, or local pub, or friends party. And its not just the context of hearing, the edges are soon burnished by success and the high class or glamourous company that comes with the relative wealth.
