Leikeli47

“Leikeli47 (pronounced lah-KAY-lee) quickly slid onto the scene cloaked in anonymity. She reps New York City, but won’t officially claim a borough, though we can deduce from her current visuals and her bars on her latest mixtape, LK-47 Pt. II, that she coughs up a lung for Brooklyn. She’s ageless, government nameless (with a rap moniker that sounds like an AOL screen name), won’t take any interviews (WTF? Hurry up!) and only speaks through her music a la Ghostface Killah during his very early Wu-Tang days and more recently The Weeknd. But like the intro “47 Gun Salute” suggests, that’s why we’re all checking for her.

The project opens with a soundbyte from the film The Dark Knight Rises, where Bane (played by Tom Hardy) says, “No one cared who I was until I put on the mask.” It’s a truthful way for Leikeli47 to introduce herself. Intrigue works.” -@kath3000

Check out her two latest visuals below.
