As part of Red Bull's 20 Before 16...
Little Simz

Red Bull recently launched their 20 Before 16 project, a series of collaborations between highly rated young artists.

British rapper Little Simz stepped into the booth with Canadian avant hip-hop instrumentalists BadBadNotGood, working on a fresh track. 'Our Conversations' is the result.

The arrangement is expansive, flirting with jazz influences - the soprano sax, the nimble bass line - while remaining devoutly within the hip-hop sphere.

Little Simz rises to the challenge, her flow working effortlessly within the complex rhythm while the lyrics have rarely hit harder: "I know the feeling when you're seen but never heard... crazy ain't it?"

Check it out now.
