Le1f's Tree House Party
Le1f is a breath of fresh air for hip-hop. His debut mixtape, Dark York, featuring the infectious single "Wut," made an impact thanks to an ear for experimental production and raps that float atop it effortlessly. His latest, Tree House, sounds airily futuristic while remaining rooted in the gritty and aggressive tunnel bangers on which he was raised. Trained in ballet and modern dance, he puts on live shows that are a sight to behold, as he incorporates his studied side alongside ratchet abandon for an incredible stage presence. While most media attention stems from his status as an openly gay rapper, it's impossible to deny his original sound and persona. With Antwon and Lakutis. 18+. (Photo by Jake Moore)
