    If ‘GREY Area’ saw Simz come-of-age as a rapper, ‘Sometimes I Might Be Introvert’ is Simz making her first long-lasting artistic stamp on the zeitgeist.

    Sometimes I Might Be Introvert is the most thrilling album of the year.

    Sometimes I Might Be Introvert is as ambitious and intimate as anything the North-London MC has ever done, and an easy contender for the best rap album of the year, let alone the week.

    Bombastic, bold, and vulnerable. It’s easily her most ambitious effort to date: 19 tracks over the course of an hour and yet somehow, it feels as though nothing is wasted.

    Throughout Sometimes I Might Be Introvert, Little Simz continues to swaggeringly craft her bio, relating how she navigated myriad challenges, never losing sight of her goals.

    An even more ambitious conceptual album that finds her sharing her insecurities, praising her heroes and going on a fairytale voyage over 19 tracks. [Oct 2021, p.30]

    In classic Simz style the journey’s more fulfilling a little further down the rabbit hole. ... But ultimately it’s hard to escape the comedy of such grand ambition also spawning the corniest voiceover since Prince invited Kirstie Alley to vandalise his symbolically titled 1992 album, and a cringe so intense it threatens to undermine everything.

Sometimes I Might be Introvert takes her fantastic Grey Area to a more expansive, fulfilling level, complete with cinematic production and vulnerable bars. Start to finish, this album delivers a storytelling experience that is unrivaled amongst the other hip hop releases this week (but unfortunately will be overshadowed by those undeserving). Will be listening through this one for years! Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Little Simz comes back with an incredibly dense, explosive, and ensemble-like production. With such an explosive opener as the song Introvert, you will be in for a sonic dessert. This is a project filled to the brim with empowerment and introspection exemplified in such tracks like Woman, "I Love You, I Hate You", and Little Q Parts 1 & 2. I do feel like that the middle section of this project is a bit weaker than the beginning and the end of the project, as I do not feel like those tracks put me in the powerful headspace that the other tracks did. The final stretch of this album is nothing short of fantastic, bringing well-needed closure to this grand, cinematic experience.

    Favorite Tracks: Introvert, Woman, Two Worlds Apart, I Love You/I Hate You, Little Q. Part 2, Standing Ovation, Point And Kill, Fear No Man, How Did You Get Here, Miss Understood

    This is my favourite album of the year, I don't think many rappers can do the work that little simz did in here. This is way better to similarThis is my favourite album of the year, I don't think many rappers can do the work that little simz did in here. This is way better to similar rap albums that dropped the same week as this one. Want to know their names?: Certified Lover Boy and Donda. Thos two projects get crushed by Little Simz rapping in this album. Simz deserves more recognition from the international media and the public eye. And from the hip hop community in general, just a great album that could come down as one of the best in recent memory. Expand
