In her relatively short career, Kate Tempest has already managed to scrape together two nominations for the Mercury Prize – the leading British music award. As much as Oasis, The xx and alt-J. OK, in an ideal world she would also have cashed in on those nominations but, admit it, this is not bad for a quirky rapper from a London suburb who is busy with literature half the time, theatre – Guy Cassiers based his theatre performance Tiresias on one of her texts – and poetry. It will therefore come as no surprise that Kate Tempest brings a mix of hip hop and spoken word, but it is surprising that she even influenced Jay-Z. After her (super) producer Rick Rubin let the rapper hear some demos from her most recent album The Book of Traps and Lessons, he suddenly said: “OK, I’m going home. I know what I need to do now. ”A few months later, Jay-Z released 4:44, by far his best and most introspective album in years. That is the effect that Kate Tempest has on people. And demi-gods.
