Little Simz, “Deranged”

​Little Simz’ sotto voce delivery sounds how you might expect Earl Sweatshirt to sound if he was a she and had a London accent. Or maybe it’s just because she rhymes on the beat from “Hive” (with noticeable distortions on the snare) with a knotted (but not quite the same) flow. Her debut mixtape is called Blank Canvas.
