SAMPA THE GREAT Shares New Version of “Time’s Up” ft JUNGLEPUSSY

Sampa The Great is best known for her blend of hip-hop, soul, R&B and spoken word. She released her breakthrough debut album The Return via Ninja Tune last year (listen HERE) which received widespread praise, was included in numerous best-of-2019 lists including Bandcamp’s #1 Album of the Year and, most recently, album track “Freedom” was featured on The Michelle Obama Playlist. The Zambia-born, Botswana-raised & Australia-based musician has also forged a reputation for breaking both personal and industry records during her burgeoning career: she recently became the first musician ever to claim the prestigious Australian Music Prize (AMP) title twice in their career, and she took home the award for “Best Hip Hop Release” at the 2019 ARIA Awards (Australia’s Grammy-equivalent), becoming the first woman of color to achieve the title. 

Today, Sampa The Great returns with new music — a remix of her recent single “Time’s Up” featuring acclaimed Brooklyn-based rapper Junglepussy. The original version of “Time’s Up” features Sampa and Melbourne based-rapper Krown having a conversation about being two young African artists working in the Australian music industry — “An industry that has often been careless in protecting the wellbeing of Black Artists,” explains Sampa. This new version focuses on an industry that is all too ready to dismiss female rappers, and sees Sampa and Junglepussy asserting the power in their voices and the music they make.
