UK teenage rapper

There was a single released in mid 2004 by a young white pop-act rapper, who we were told was going to be the next new female eminem. She may have sung about being a serial killer, but that didn't suit here, more like MC Britney S, then she disappeared without trace. Who was she?

Princess Superstar, maybe? Although her work was of better quality than you describe.

Response by poster: That was the name i had in my head, and i think it was around that time, but it was not her. She was perhaps much more manufactured, and a better babysitter.

Best answer: Jentina maybe...although first single was 'Bad Ass Strippa'
Estelle? (flash warning) - first single 1980's
Verbalicious? - first single don't play nice

or maybe

Phoebe One - although pretty underground...

Although Princess Superstar was listed as 'The Female Eminem' - much of her stuff crosses genres and has been remixes into hosey-electro stuff well worth listening to....

Maybe it was Nellie McKay. She's still around; every once in a while there will be a blurb about her in the paper. She's not actually from England, but I think she started her act there. She sort of raps and sings and plays piano all together in a kind of cabaret style.
