Birmingham MC, Lady Sanity‘s newest single “Role Models” is a tour de force that centers on the various unrealistic constructs built by the music industry. An industry that often times put artists on a pseudo pedestal for young impressionable kids to emulate much to their detriment. The song produced by  Chisomo Thipa, has this cinematic feel to it which starts with a somewhat sombre piano riff which sets the mode for Lady Sanity’s deconstruction of the topic at hand.

She quips “These role models overboard, washed up self absorbed, soaked in illegal substances… break neck bones and bank balances, trying to match the score…” over the hard hitting backdrop, shedding some light on the mounting pressure the industry love to place on celebrities especially women who are expected to look and carry themselves in a certain way even if it literally kills them.


Role Models’, is lifted from her forthcoming EP, ‘For Figures’.


Having received positive responses to her debut mix-tape, ‘Construction’ in 2014, and backing from the BBC, Lady Sanity began her journey as a promising star emerging out of the Birmingham rap game. Drawing her inspiration from artists like Lauryn Hill, MC Lyteand Missy Elliot, her genre-bending flow caught the attention of many platforms. Notably performing on ‘A Night of New Music with 6 Music’s Tom Robinson’, as well as receiving attention for her two EP releases ‘Summer in September’ and ‘The Graduate’ from NUBI, Grapevine and Rhyme & Reason, the hype is starting to build around the poetic maverick.

Hard-hitting bars, profound lyrics and an authentic personality to round it all off, Lady Sanity is leading the charge for the new era of real female emcee’s, and having secured a slot at Glastonbury, Boom Bap and taking home the Get Rated prize for upcoming artists at the Rated Awards, the sky is the limit for the Birmingham wordsmith.
