One of the rising stars of the UK urban scene
The 24-year-old Nadia Rose is a rising star in the sky of British hiphop. The British MC raps punchline after punchline with a self-confidence that would make many of her male counterparts feel sheepish. Rose grew up in the heart of London with her Ghanaian mother and her Jamaican father, who made a name for himself as a dancehall DJ and MC. These influences can be heard in Nadia’s own productions: blazing UK grime in the line of Lady Leshurr and Skepta but with a completely unique flow, characterised by verbal eccentricity and explosive energy.
In 2015 she went viral on YouTube. Big labels bid against each other to snap up this young talent and in the summer of 2016 she signed with Sony / Relentless. Shortly thereafter she dropped the irresistible single ‘Skwod’, which soon garnered over a million views! Having previously supported Section Boys, Anderson .Paak, Busta Rhymes and Princess Nokia, and with performances at Glastonbury, Wireless and Reading under her belt, Nadia Rose has already established herself as one of the most exciting stars of the current UK urban scene.
