British rapper Speech Debelle just won the Mercury Prize, you guys! I’d rattle off some information on the award-winner including background information and hot tracks, but I have NO idea who this is. I’m a bad music blogger, I guess. I looked at their list of nominees for the best album of the year (from the U.K. or Ireland, of course) and totally skipped over her name in favor of “heavyweight” acts like Friendly Fires and Florence and the Machine. Oops! Well, here’s a song she did!
