Along with industrial decline and ground-breaking techno, Detroit has long been synonymous with idiosyncratic hip hop. To the ranks of Eminem, Angel Haze and, er, Kid Rock, we can now welcome Lizzo. A veteran of R&B groups Cornrow Clique and I N I T I A L S, Lizzo's confrontational flow has seen her tagged as the new Missy Elliot. In truth her influences are far more eclectic. Relocated to Minneapolis, she's part of a circle of leftfield musicians that includes producer Aaron Mader (better known by his Beak moniker) and ├╝ber-scenester Ryan Olson, the creative force behind Gayngs and Polica. Thus, alongside her impressive rhyming, she has a taste for offkilter arrangements, testament to her audible willingness to push her chosen genre in an entirely different direction.
