This week’s #WCW takes the shape of up and coming, purple-haired rapper, Sophiegrophy. She is somebody a lot of people have been excited about since she dropped her debut EP, ‘Purpularity’ last year. Our boy, Strict Face is a big fan, having her feature on his new EP.
The most impressive thing is that Sophie gained all that hype through word of mouth, never having sent out a press release. She’s just been letting her music do all the talking and it’s been serving her well. Rapping came to her as a pre-teen and she’s been working hard at it since.
Sophiegrophy really started to clock up fans with her freestyle videos. With tens of thousands of views she was getting bigger and better with each new freestyle. Last month she played the RBMA One Day Carpark Carnival and we are sure there will be more where that came from.
It is such an incredible time for women in rap music, especially here in Australia. Among the likes of Sampa The Great, Miss Blanks and heaps more, Sophiegrophy is making her own mark. Her organic progression and climb to the top is so empowering. Sophie is another woman who will be an inspiration to so many young rappers.
