EDITORS’ NOTES

Sampa the Great shares her deeply personal and outward-facing vision. By fusing a poet’s love of words with an MC’s flair, the Melbourne artist recalls Baduizm-era Erykah and “UMI Says”-era Mos Def on tracks like “Flowers,” “Protect Your Queen,” and “Inner Voice.” Kwes Darko, Sensible J, and Alejandro “JJ” Abapo hold down the production end—mixing chants and neo-soul into Sampa’s hip-hop soil.
