You can’t really deny anyone’s been working harder than Little Simz this year; having dropped her dope debut record A Curious Tale Of Trials + Persons in late-summer, the shining star has also been cooking up a lot more in the studio, and today those goods have been delivered.
After a couple of week’s worth of teasers, Simz has shared her new AGE 101: DROP X mixtape, a seven-track collection that features a shitload of collaborations (from the likes of Mick Jenkins, Bibi Bourelly and more).
Upon sharing the project, Simbi said:
“Firstly I just want to say thank you to everyone who has supported me thus far.
This year has been a special one. After releasing my debut album I wanted to round up the year nice, felt right to release another Drop solely for the people who been on this journey with me.
For those who are wondering why i called it Drop X instead of Drop 5, it’s simple this is my TENTH solo project. I know right, madting.
I rarely have features on my releases but for this one I had to call on a few of my friends to join me. special thanks to OTG, Chuck20, Josh Arcé, Tilla, Loner Muaka, President Jeff, Deezy, Tiffany Gouché, SiR, Isaiah Rashad, Kent Jamz, Jesse Boykins iii, ALXA, Mick Jenkins, Bibi Bourelly and Wonda Gurl. Love you lot.
Peace, blessings and Merry DropXmas. one love. Simbi”
