Shystie dropped her new mixtape a few days ago entitled You’re Welcome. The London born emcee (slash actress) has been relatively quiet as of late, but she’s officially back and with a tape that I have found to be pretty impressive.
With the exception of a few, there aren’t that many female rappers representing these shores as well as Shystie – her flow and lyrical content are very much on point – elements well displayed on You’re Welcome.
Admittedly, not every song speaks to me, but for the most part the combination of what Shystie is saying, how she says it and the beats she has chosen to express herself over has earned my attention. I mean, there are some massive tunes on here – I have to shout out ‘Ima Boss’ – probably my favourite on the tape. Shystie goes in over a neck breakin’ crunk beat – sh*t sounds like it’s straight out of the ATL – this one took me by surprise. Other highlights include ‘We Be Rollin”, the all-female ‘Warning’ (featuring Lioness & Lady Leshurr), ‘Headbanger’ (featuring Ghetts, Bounty Killa & Trilla) and ‘Fine Day’.
Would definitely recommend you spend some time on this.
