Nadia Rose[UK]

Hailing from Croydon, 23 year old Nadia is a rising voice in the UK hip hop scene. Beginning her career making mainly hip-hop, she has continued to evolve, combining her interests in many genres of music to create her own authentic and individual sound: “The Scene’s savage, hilarious new voice has everyone from Katy B to Prince Harry backing her.“ (The FADER)

Rose’s music videos, lyrics and general outlook crack with fun. She speeds up, slows down, drops into patois, stacks rhymes on rhymes, doubles up meanings, bounces between pop culture references. Her lyrical prowess stems from a love of the dictionary: “My mum wanted the Bible by my pillow, but I had the dictionary there!“ she says (interview with The Guardian). Now, that childhood nerdiness is put to good use rapping circles around her targets and turning up the energy for her crew.

Opening for rap legend Busta Rhymes and performing alongside acts such as r&b superstar Alicia Keys, Section Boyz and Anderson and Paak, the multi faceted female rapper released her first EP, Highly Flammable, on Sony/Relentless in 2016, and is poised to lead the wave of charismatic, quick-witted female rappers from the UK and beyond.
