BBC. NITTY SCOTT.

 

Nitzia Scott — better known as Nitty Scott  is a New York City based MC, whose breakthrough came in 2010 when her video for her freestyle of Kanye West’s track Monster went viral.

 

 

Since then the former art-school-student-turned-recording-artist has performed with the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Cardi B and launched her second album Creature! which uses her own life as inspiration for a character named “Negrita in Wonderland” exploring themes such as diasporic identities and the pre-colonial world.

 

Now, Nitty is getting ready to take part in BBC Prom's New York: Sound Of A City this August.

 

 

“As a brown girl in NYC, I am so honored to bring the afrolatina, feminista vibes to the BBC stage!" said Nitty.

 

"I'm excited to show the UK what you get when you blend island roots, city stoops & one amazing orchestra.”

 

The Prom will be led by innovative conductor Jules Buckley and his Heritage Orchestra, featuring performances from well-established US artists Sharon Van Etten, serpentwithfeet, and Hercules & Love Affair.

 

New York: Sound Of A City will be at the Royal Albert Hall on 8 August and recorded for future broadcast on BBC Four on Friday 10 August. For tickets click here.
