QUOTES

This 22-year-old female MC from Manchester is as good as, if not better than, any other of the UK’s rap lad. UNTITLED

The girl is quick, confidence, cool and slick, like lightspeed cracks through thin ice –and she’s not just skating on top, she’s turning triple axels, and grinning like it’s nothing at all. UNTITLED

Her lyrics are clever, conscious and executed brilliantly over sounds you won’t have heard before. REWIND

Tongue Twister is the divine coincidence between Envy’s brain-jangling lyrics, delivered with a dizzying fluidity, and the gorgeous texture of beats and melody that she surrounds it with. DJ MAG

This Twenty-year-old MC from Manchester on Medasyn’s beats manages to ride a bike and rap in her video ‘Tongue Twister’, this will be an Olympic event by 2012. PLAN B

Envy- aka Nicola Varley, a 22 yr-old rapper/ MC from Manchester. Already making big shockwaves on the grime and UK hip-hop scene, Envy waxes deep lyrical over the cool, smoky beats of Medasyn (Lady Sov/ Shystie), with a bold, unhurried flow that smacks of future stardom.
Writing lyrics from the age of 12, beginning with songs for singers, it wasn’t until the age of 15, when she developed an interest in hip-hop that Envy decided to put her lyrics to rap beats. Influenced by artists such as Nas, TLC, Missy Elliot and Ms Dynamite.
