Leikeli47: Masked and Mysterious

With a DOOM-like veil over her face, a Beyonce-esque nerve in her voice, the evasiveness of MIA, and the hungry urgency of New York’s longstanding hip hop scene, Leikeli47 is an explosive young rapper to watch for in 2014. Her latest mixtape, Lk-47 pt. II, released January 9th on her Soundcloud, introduces a poised and impassioned artist, dynamic enough to reimagine Drake’s hit crooner “Hold On We’re Going Home,” feature snippets of Big Freedia’s “Y’all Get Back Now” and Mystikal’s “Shake Ya Ass” on an interlude called “Cus I Feel Like It,” and bounce effortlessly from gritty gun-totting lyricism to pointed criticism of American gender roles.
