Rosh – Svart Diamant (feat. Vaz)


It’s not terribly easy to write about rap music in a foreign language but we’re willing to give it a go because this, the lead single off the debut EP by 18-year-old Rosh, is excellent. It features brilliant-in-their-own-right Stockholm sisters Vaz on chanting/chorus duties and Rosh spitting rhymes like she’s going to take over the world, even if we don’t understand any of it (OK, we get the word “syster” on the EP’s most tender track, Syster). But as with fellow Swedish rap superstar Silvana Imam, the language barrier probably detracts from some of the brilliance of the music, but the beats are easily good enough for it not to matter. Listen to the EP on Spotify.
