The absolute queen of Swedish hip hop at this moment is Linda Pira. She calls herself the Latin Queen and she also goes by the name Matriarken (The Matriarch). She released her debut EP last year and on Friday she dropped her new UV-light video for the latest singel Knäpper mina fingrar (Snapping my fingers). This queen is going to reign for a long time.
