Little Simz: Momentum

Momentum Music Fund Recipient 2015

Born and raised in North London, the young wordsmith known as Little Simz brings a new level of intelligence, creativity and musicality to the global hip-hop arena.

At just 21 years of age, nothing could have prepared Little Simz for her meteoric rise. Charismatic, fierce and lyrically mature, the rapper and musician caught the attention of JAY Z’s Life + Times platform in 2013, seeing them premiere her fourth mix-tape BLANK CANVAS and Simz then catapulting into a whole new stratosphere.

But even with a growing line of high-profile stars queuing up to collaborate and offers from many a major label, Little Simz decided to head back to her bedroom studio to follow the mix-tape with her debut EP E.D.G.E and release it on her own label AGE 101 in the summer of 2014.

After a whirlwind year that followed the release, which also saw her release four installments in her AGE 101: DROP series of mini-EPs, Simz can now count the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Yasiin Bey (formerly known as Mos Def), Snoop Dogg and many more as fans.

Recently winning the Breakthrough Act Of The Year award at the highly respected 10th Annual Worldwide Awards, being nominated for a BET Award and two MOBO Awards, and her eagerly anticipated debut album which is set to be released this summer, all eyes are firmly glued on the young leader’s next steps.


The Momentum Music Fund will support the mastering, UK touring, promotional videos and marketing of Little Simz‘ forthcoming debut album, which we will be released later this year.

“As an independent artist and label owner the Momentum Music Fund is a major helping hand for myself and my team. As we are working to inspire and to show a new generation of artists from the UK that they can make an impact on a global scale without having to sign to a major record label, funding like this is a huge part of making the journey to the end goal possible”
