iTunes Editors’ Notes

She may not be the first artist from the UK's fertile grime scene to get a big record deal in the U.S., but the talented, self-described "white midget" <is the first artist from outside the States to ever be signed to Def Jam — on the basis of a single freestyle delivered in front of Nas and Jay-Z, no less. And while she may have infamously failed to get anything going in the studio with hit-makers the Neptunes while working on this two-years-in-the-making-album, she can clearly craft catchy and minimalist bleepy-bloopy, electro-hop songs all on her own. The drawback with the wait of course is that fans will know half the tracks already, from when they were released as singles or on the 5-foot-1, young rapper's website. But even the topical, banging, Chingy-biting "Random" sounds no less relevant or awesome a few years later. She knows how to rock a beat like Missy Elliott, though for all her ego-driven angst and self-deprecating banter, a better comparison might be Eminem. A few tunes fall flat, but Lady Sovereign's debut is a nimble, slang-and-stunner overall; she's arguably (easily) the biggest hip-hop talent to emerge from the UK since Mike "Streets" Skinner.

Oh yeaaah!

Personally i really enjoy her! Shes so unique! Think about it, how many young, short, white, british, female rappers can you name? Mmhmm... She has fast, bass filled beats, a strong voice and either humours or cute lyrics. Shes real creative! Its not like hearing the same thing over and over again. I can seriously listen to her songs all day. Shes talented and fun to listen to!!! Ever since i first heard her music, i have been waiting to hear the whole album! its real GOOD! Normally i listen to metal, rock, alt and some rap but this appealed to me. You NEED to get this album!!! You'll be so missing out if you don't! so GET IT =] You won't reget it! GO!

Buy this ALBUM...

from Circuit City. It's only $6.99 and itunes tries to rape us again by not putting the whole album up for sale. Shame on you itunes.

Love or her or hate her!

This album is pure fun! I love Lad Sov, and her fun & witty attitude. Theres no reason to not like this album, all of the tracks are catchy and will get you moving. If you already love "Love Me or Hate Me", then don't hesitate to get this album, because you'll love it!

The self-proclaimed "biggest midget in the game," MC Lady Sovereign has an unmistakably British delivery and style, but a string of singles showcasing her sly wit and brash charisma over bottom-heavy beats brought on a worldwide buzz. Born Louise Harman, Sovereign was raised in northwest London's notorious Chalkhill Estate, a public housing project known for being especially rough and ragged. Although she admits her upbringing could get dangerous or depressing in these surroundings, Sovereign...
