Paigey's steady rise hasn’t been a fluke: she has spent the last two years polishing up her rhymes, plugging away at her craft and putting her cheeky stamp across the genre. Now the 20-year-old Hackney local is in possession of one of the most exciting voices in the genre, spitting confident rhymes and providing a witty narrative about the world around her.
