African-Australian rapper Sampa The Great has returned today, with a stunning new tune that once again proves her to be at the forefront of Australian hip-hop.
Teaming up with British soul singer Estelle and producer Rahki, known for his work with the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, Talib Kweli and fellow Aus rapper Illy, "Everybody's Hero" is the first track from Sampa's upcoming EP HERoes Act 2, set for release on May 12.
"Everybody's Hero" is smooth, slinky and understated. Sampa is at her most low-flying temperateness, with powerful yet thoughtful, provocative verses, set to low-slung, jazzy production from the man who brought you "i" and "Institutionalized" from To Pimp A Butterfly.
One of Australia's best rappers and live performers, Sampa the Great continues to live up to her name. Watch this space - she's just getting started.
