As listeners to her recent DJBooth debut, BAD (Lord Forgive Me), may have surmised, UK rap buzzmaker Little Simz ain’t exactly right in the head. Fortunately, rap is one of the few careers in which being slightly Deranged is an asset, rather than a liability. On the latest song release off her forthcoming mixtape, the 19-year-old rhymesayer delivers unhinged lyrical flames over the grimy Matt Martian/randomblackdude beat that originally backed Earl Sweatshirt‘s Hive. In contrast to the aggressive, taunting delivery showcased on her first feature, the artist delivers her combative bars in an impassive tone reminiscent of the Odd Future lyricist’s trademark deadpan croak. (You know, if Earl were female and British.) Jeremy Cole provides some “dark, glitchy” visuals to accompany the cut. Fans can find Deranged and much more on Little Simz’s Blank Canvas tape, available now online
