“…if you think you’re gonna string me along, you got another thing comin…ohhh…I ain’t never played 2nd fiddle for nathan…I mean God never bowed down to satan…tell me how I’m supposed to be patient…gotta get it how you get it no waitin…(2nd Fiddle)”
Raptress Leikeli47 has just released her very first album Wash & Set. The whole album is bangers from start to finish.
It has not been long at all that I was introduced to Leikeli47. I came across one of her videos decided to check it out & was instantly struck by her. Not only is her style striking with the masks she is always wearing, but her whole swag is very large & commanding. She has the bars, the flow, & even a good singing voice to go along with them. She seems to have a good ear for production & is one of those artists that feel inevitable to blow up. For the last week or so I have been listening to 2nd Fiddle & Who’s That a lot. So when I saw that her album was out I was excited. That excitement only increased as I listened to it.
Not only is the production top notch, but the lyrics & flow are incredible too. So much of the album makes you want to dance & rap along. Leikeli47 is truly gifted at weaving songs that could be day to day anthems. She New York, but with her own spin. It is one of the strongest Hip Hop debuts I have heard in some time & making a strong case for one of my favorite albums to drop this year. Not only did I skip nothing, but I immediately looped the album. There are no features. Just Leikeli47 & her huge presence. Some of the tracks can also be heard on the soundtrack for HBO’s Insecure, which is also out today.
Wash & Set is out everywhere. Do yourself a favor & get into it. Check out her latest video for M I L K below & enjoy a good preview of Wash & Set courtesy of her Youtube channel:
