In their relatively short career, Kae Tempest has already picked up two nominations for the Mercury Prize – Britain’s leading music award. As many as Oasis, The xx and alt-J. Okay, in an ideal world, they would have cashed in on those nominations too, but admit it, that’s not bad for a quirky rapper from a London suburb who spends half her time doing literature, theatre – Guy Cassiers based his play Tiresias on one of their lyrics – and poetry. It will therefore not surprise anyone that Tempest brings a mix of hip-hop and spoken word, but what should be surprising is that they even influenced Jay-Z with it. After their (super) producer Rick Rubin played some demos of her latest album The Book of Traps and Lessons to the rapper, he suddenly said: “Okay, 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 record in years. That’s the effect Kae Tempest has on people. And demigods.
