Download Leikeli47’s Lk-47 Pt. II Mixtape
Leikeli47 is an eternally ski mask clad female rapper from New York who just turned in one of the most inspiring rap tapes we’ve heard in a minute. Lk-47 Pt. II is (clearly) the second tape in a series and while we hadn’t heard the first incantation until today, the mixture of Miami-derived bass, Bomb Squad-esque production and ol’ fashioned New York swagger is irresistible. The rapping is brash and direct as Leikeli47 compares herself to corporate mavens Oprah and Diddy, as well as both Janet and Michael Jackson, and Van Ghogh (among others). Not only can she rap with ferocity, she can really belt it out, crafting some instantly memorable choruses on tracks like “Miss America” and “The Root”. Lk-47 Pt. II sounds effortlessly complete and creatively endowed, a rare fete for a relatively new artist. Expect to hear a lot of “C&C”, “Miss America” and “Heard Em Say” in the coming months.
