If you're a true boombap Hip-Hop fanatic then teenager, Brighton born rapper, Phonetic is definitely one to look out for in the future.
Growing up listening to the likes of Nas, Wu-Tang, Lowkey and Akala, there's no wonder that her style is as raw, energetic and underground as it comes; paying homage to the true old school sound of Hip-Hop, blended with it's own UK twist.
With a healthy supply of producers at her disposal it's not surprising really that Phonetic has been busy grafting in the studio, mastering her craft - carefully piecing together her EP project which she's looking to release this year.
