Artist Profile: Ladi6

While the world speculates if Lauryn Hill is on the verge of a comeback (fingers crossed:) with the release of track named "Repercussions" another singer/MC has slowly been making her mark around the world. New Zealand-born Ladi6 got her start as part of the all-female rap group Sheelahroc in 2003 before going off her own. While she hasn't blown up over here in the States just yet, she has toured constantly through Europe and opened for hip hop heavyweights such as 50 Cent, The Roots and De La Soul. Her album Time is Not Much Now is a bubbling cauldron of musical diversity. The playful "Call You Out" featuring the rapper Scribe features fat brass riffs, drums, guitar licks reminiscient of Amy Winehouse's "You Know I'm No Good," while first single "Walk Right Up" gives off a laidback reggae vibe. Ladi6 delves into a deep funk groove on the sultry"Dark Brown," while the ballad "Question" finds her in a contemplative mood, questioning the promises of love. Listen to a few tracks and watch the video for "Walk Right Up" below, and learn more about Ladi6 at her official website.
