Who is Jill Scott? Words and Sounds Vol. 1

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap; Lead Performer: Jill Scott; Producer (group): Hidden Beach

Will Scott get Gored at the Grammys? If voters hand the Best New Artist prize to anyone else, demand a recount. The nominated singer, whose album, Who Is Jill Scott? Words and Sounds Vol. 1, has been selling all year, boasts the gutsiest voice of any neo- soul star. Though she plows the same jazzy field as Erykah Badu, Scott owns a stronger instrument and writes earthier material. Her honey molasses voice will coat all your senses.
