Jeez, your early twenties. What madness, eh? That time when you are not exactly a teenager nor an adult. That limbo in which the world wants you to be responsible but doesn’t give you responsibilities. What do you want from me? That indefinable period in which nothing is black or white is what Little Simz calls GREY Area in the title of her third and most recent album. Out of that period of uncertainty she emerged as a certainty, in 2019, this is a rarity:  in times of trap, her classical flow that already has the blessings of Kendrick Lamar and Lauryn Hill, she recovers the noble art of saying it not loudly but very clearly.
