DESCRIPTION

Sampa the Great is a tangle of influences--the music of her native Botswana mixes with Lauryn Hill, R&B, M.I.A., '90s rap and points beyond and in between--and her debut LP, 'The Return,' delivers on all that is promised in that mix of influences. It's a consistently rewarding LP, one that has different pockets of interest on each new spin--listen to her pass the mic with Krown on one pass, and ride out to "OMG" on the next--but one that makes clear: Sampa is a star. Get familiar and get this album.
