Whether it’s with a balaclava or bandana, you’ll probably never get to see Virginia/Brooklyn rapper Leikeli47 without some sort of mask covering her face. Apart from adding a layer of mystery to the artist’s image, it also allows the music to truly shine and even raises the question on why this should matter in the first place. On ‘Acrylic’, the second instalment to the rapper’s ‘Beauty Series’ trilogy, Leikeli47 continues where she left off on 2017’s Wash & Set’ with thrilling, explosive cuts like ‘Iron Mike’ and sometimes delicate and vulnerable offerings like ‘Droppin’.
For her COLORS session, Leikeli47 serves up a powerful rendition of ‘Bad Gyal Flex’, a standout from ‘Acrylic’. Utterly empowering, you can’t help be blown away by the rapper’s infectious energy in the performance. The harsh but fiery soundscape is the perfect catapult for Leikeli to lay down her fierce and ferocious wordplay. Check out the performance of ‘Bad Gyal Flex’ up top and be sure to give ‘Acrylic’ a spin too, not to mention to keep an eye out for Leikeli47’s third and final instalment to her ‘Beauty Series’ project.
