BlatantlyBlunt Introducing... Lucy Love

As you know, BlatantlyBlunt invites up and coming artists to get in touch to showcase their material, and if we like them they get put on.
The latest artist to be featured on your favourite blog is a rising Copenhagen, Denmark based female grime MC by the name of Lucy Love, formely known as Alchemist (if you know much about US HipHop, you'll know why it was changed) who is currently working with producer Yo Akim and representing with Denmark based label Pilot Music, who cover other genres like Drum & Bass. Her debut single 'No V.I.P.' is safely making its way across the world and is being aired on Danish radio, as well as UK pirate stations like Rinse FM (check her spitting on Rinse here ) and other local stations around the world.
As an emcee, spitting intelligently in a language other than your mother tongue has got to be tough, so it's great to hear when a foreigner with UK influences can be more talented than someone like Lady Sovereign, Def Jam's first UK signing, who didn't exactly impress beyond her Missy Elliot featured first (and quite frankly novelty) single.

This stop motion extravaganza was created by talented artist Sif Westerberg, from over 5500 frames and a bunch of plasticine and cardboard and a bit of editing by Lucy Love herself.

Lucy Love's debut album is expected to drop this autumn so watch out.
