Dope Saint Jude (Hip Hop, Rap | ZA, UK)
Rap kingpin and producer, Dope Saint Jude’s moment to shine was encoded in the stars by her ancestors. The Cape Town-born, artist took her first strides into music-making at the tail-end of 2013. A string of follow-up singles, plus a highly stylized video, led to increased visibility on the Internet.She has steadily kept her eyes transfixed towards the future — creating lanes where there previously were none — and wreaking havoc on stage, from one show to the next, using her elaborate antics.
2018 saw the release of her second EP, Resilient, and her explosive lead single “Grrrl Like”. Dope Saint Jude is now London-based, having performed across Europe, bludgeoning the scene with her cold and sparse, fast-paced hi-hat-laden production sensibilities. France, Finland and the United States count as previous stops.In 2019, the artist will be embarking on her first world tour, inviting an even larger audience to her outernational, intersectional grrrl gang.
