More Eminem than Missy Elliot, this diminutive U.K. rapper shows exactly how threatening a small woman with a big mouth can be. Her spiky collision of punk rock attitude and pop appeal is a revelation and her self-awareness is oddly shocking, but rather endearing, as the 5-foot-1 rapper asserts, "I'm the biggest midget in the fame." Wicked, irreverent, smart, and full of self-depreciating humor, this queen of grime rap pillages her autobiography on "Those Were the Days," deconstructs nationalism on "My England," raids Mother Goose on "Public Warning," and then drops a gauntlet with a loud clattering sound, making listeners laugh out loud with the snotty, but laughable challenge of "Love Me or Hate Me." But mostly she keeps things moving, throwing off sparks and bon mots with her mad, furious, in-your-face flow, while adding a bit of glam and new wave to the electro hip-hop beats. She might be small, but her future as the voice of the fashionably disaffected is huge.
