Barclaycard Mercury Prize 2009 Winner - Speech Debelle

South Londoner Speech Debelle has won the Barclaycard Mercury Prize 2009 for her album, 'Speech Therapy'. 'Speech Therapy' was the only hip hop entry this year and beat 11 other albums from the likes of La Roux, Kasabian and Florence + The Machine.

Hardly anybody knew about Speech before she was nominated for the Mercury the Prize, now she'll be one of the handful of Urban artists that press and music industry will now pay a lot of attention to!

Congrats to Speech Debelle, who's now the second Urban artist to win a Mercury Prize, alongside Dizzee Rascal who won in 2003 for his album 'Boy In Da Corner'.

    2009 has been a good year for 'Urban' music and 2010 will be even better
