Lady Lykez and producer Scratcha DVA probably have one of the oldest friendships in the scene, having first met back in 2007. But over a decade later and the pair have only just worked together for the first time, with the latter producing the former's latest EP, Muhammad Ali.
The four-track project brings together all the elements that make Lady Lykez such a formidable MC, with grime, rap and dancehall all making an appearance in one form or another, and her rapid-fire delivery and no-nonsense bars are complemented by the high-energy production throughout. There's even a feature from Lioness who come through for the remix of the title track, proving that 2019 really does belong to the women of the scene.
