Sampa The Great returns in her “Final Form”

Melbourne-based MC Sampa The Great recently shared her new single and accompanying music video for “Final Form,” a triumphant song about rising above the din of negativity and believing in your own hype. “As an artist I now recognize my in-between stage; sometimes it drops and sometimes it rises, but I love that I get to level up each second. I might even final form tomorrow,” she says about the song. Produced by longtime collaborator Silentjay (Rhythm Section) – and mixed by Jonwayne of Stones Throw Records notoriety – it draws inspiration from the energy of their shared inspirations in classic hip-hop.

The music video sees Sampa travel back to Zambia to explore the traditions and communities of her roots. Bridging the gap between the traditional worlds of Nyau dancers and modern Zambian youth culture, it was filmed in the run-up to her first ever shows on African soil, including her recent homecoming show in Zambia.
