Lady Sovereign-Public Warning

None November 30th, 2006


Def Jam

Lady Sovereign (Lady Sov if you're nasty; Louise Harman if you're her parents) arrives on American shores behind a mountain of hype taller than she is. Pint-sized but big-mouthed, this latest British hip-hop export is the newest face in Jay-Z's galaxy of petite female stars (oh, whither Rihanna?)' a foul, verbally agile hybrid marrying the hostile intensity of fellow grime star Dizzee Rascal with the playful vulgarity of Eminem.
Blogs and music mags have been salivating over Lady Sovereign ever since her impressive appearances on 2005's "Run the Road" compilation and her debut EP, "Vertically Challenged." The slick, flashy facade that renders tracks like the predictable "Love Me or Hate Me" and the bland title cut seemingly hollow detracts from the obvious skill of the self-proclaimed "biggest midget in the game," making "Public Warning" less of an instant classic and more of a promise of things to come.
