Lady Sovereign's short, pissed, and funny as shit, and her Vertically Challenged EP showcases her sizeable talent most impressively. Meanwhile, the Streets' Mike Skinner continues to evolve at lightning speed: The Hardest Way to Make an Easy Living is the Streets' richest work yet, setting Skinner's celebrated lyrics among the best music of his career.
