British hip hop artist Speech Debelle emerged triumphant at the U.K.’s Mercury Prize Tuesday night, grabbing the prestigious music award for her debut album Speech Therapy.

She beat out more established acts such as rock group Kasabian and solo artist Bat for Lashes.

26-year-old Debelle, whose album was inspired by a period when she was homeless, had sold less than 3,000 copies of Speech Therapy before Tuesday evening, when she picked up the £20,000 prize.
