Speech Debelle - Live For The Message 12" [Big Dada]Speech Debelle returns to the fray with the third single from her critically-acclaimed second album, "Freedom Of Speech". One of the standout tracks from the album, "Live For The Message" was produced by Kwes and features a softly-spoken but defiant vocal from Speech in which she outlines why it's more important to be heard saying the right thing than to be heard - a message not just for the contemporary rap community but for a world obsessed with form over content.

Joining Speech for an epic refix are some of the cream of the UK hip hop community - Akala, DELS, Genesis Elijah, Jaja Soze, Confucious MC, Aks, Rain Freedom and Kasha Rae, as well as longtime collaborator Realism. Each of the artists takes the opportunity to deliver a message, making a kind of collage which gels their voices into a whole. Self Taught, meanwhile, hardens the beat a little and gives it a bit more hip hop snap.

Speech rose to fame with one of the most inspirational debut albums of the last few years, the Mercury Music Prize winning 'Speech Therapy', and her forthright and outspoken personality has endeared her to a worldwide audience. Aside from her musically compelling albums, her haunting lyrics feature on Bonobo's 'Sun Will Rise', (from Ninja Tune’s 20th anniversary XX boxset). She also hints at a playful relationship with the mainstream in her track 'Spinnin', which was adapted by Tinchy Stryder to become the first Olympic song of 2012. After a busy year in which Speech has released an album, toured all over Europe and fronted an acclaimed documentary on homelessness for the BBC, what better way could there to round things off than with a reminder of what a compelling presence the "Queen of UK Rap" (Clash) can be.
