Anita Blay (a.k.a. thecocknbullkid) is a Londoner falling into a genre of music that was once ruled by M.I.A. but has recently seen Santogold enter the fray. Where Santogold provided British hip-hop that was readily prepared for the masses to digest and accept, thecocknbullkid will rely on a growing cult following. This, potentially, could see the development of a more credible and widely respected artist; following in the footsteps of M.I.A. herself. A British female rapping over hip-hop beats infused with electro is not a totally new concept, but the timing seems right for thecocknbullkid and her brand of music is undeniably top-draw stuff.

Listen to: There’s a Mother in Our Bed, On My Own

Sounds Like: M.I.A. and Santogold, but with an underlying edgyness
