Lady Sov to Greg Kot: I roll on a bicycle

The scouting report on Lady Sovereign: She's a girl, from London, 19 years old and 5 feet tall. Oh and she signed a big-money worldwide record deal with Universal this year, and if you wanna battle, well, bring it on.

The latest in the line of Brit MCs to fire up the hype machine (Mike Skinner, Dizzee Rascal, MIA, Wiley), Sov makes her debut in the Chi tonight at Sonotheque. The gig is yet another from the Biz 3 promo crew, whose Damon Locks and Ben Fasman will join Johnny Herndon from Tortoise on the tables.

In today's Trib, Lady Sov tells Greg Kot she dropped a portion of her Uni bank on new wheels. Forget the Sprees and 24s, though, Sov's style is Schwinn.
