Lady Sovereign Album Date Set
The self-proclaimed "biggest midget in the game" Lady Sovereign stormed the North American coast last year with Vertically Challenged, a release that not only schooled the American population in the basics of grime, but also opened the door for a true media stampede. Having now appeared in every magazine from XLR8R to Elle, as well as taken her cheeky rhymes and rhythms to all four corners of the globe, it looks like Sov is ready to step things up even further with Public Warning, her first major label release. Already causing a stir in several circles with the single "Love Me or Hate Me" (due out later this month), the album looks like just the beginning of another busy season for this 19-year old MC.
Public Warning is out October 3 on Def Jam.
