The 21 year old rapper from England flew all the way to Austin to perform at SXSW and had the crowd at the Dr. Martens/Culture Collide house grooving the whole time. Attendees were happy to have some time out of the rain with Fridays downpour and were welcomed by the incredible lyricism of Little Simz. She took control of the crowd masterfully, demanding participation, and boy did they participate. Throwing hands up and rapping along, Little Simz knows what she is doing when she steps on the stage. Simz was nice enough to stay and chat with every fan that came up to her after the performance and thanked everyone for coming out and bearing the weather. Little Simz is a true performer from start to finish.
