A rapper, who only started writing music during lockdown, has been named the Future Sound of Bristol after winning a competition.

B of Briz performs in a mask and her unique brand of hip-hop impressed the judges with its innovation.

She beat 110 rivals to win the 5,000 first prize, which she is set to use to finance recording her debut album.

Aged 42, B of Briz is also a producer and writer. She hopes to take her love of hip-hop to a wider audience.

"I'm in my 40s, my debut EP was called 42, and that's because I turned 42 this year, and really I started writing in lockdown," she said.
