Leikeli47: Two Times a Charm
on 17 August 2014
Rapper Leikeli47 is masked in mystery—literally. The artist who crosses genres from soul to Caribbean step has only been photographed wearing a mask and her videos usually feature her friends instead of the artist herself. Her recent single "Two Times a Charm" sees the most advanced confluence of influences in the (supposedly) Brooklyn-based rapper's catalogue. Quick spit verses à la Busta Rhymes seamlessly turn to an intimate R&B tinged aside. It's disjointed but catchy, the kind of track that against all odds simply works. Breaking new ground in the female rap game, Leikeli47 is an artist to watch.
