Leikeli47 - Wash and Set— Si Sharp -
Brooklyn rapper Leikeli47 finally released her debut after this year. I don’t know much about her - she wears a ski mask, doesn’t really do interviews and has been releasing brilliant EPs and singles over the last five years. The album maybe lacks the immediacy of the songs that made me fall for her (pop over to Spotify and check out Girl Gang or Heard ‘Em Say to see what I mean) and perhaps that’s why this didn’t blow up as much as I expected. Never mind, there’s still time for that - lyrically she just gets better and she still doesn’t sound like anyone else.
