Best of Le1f

Out-and-proud gay rapper Khalif Diouf a.k.a. Le1f is one of those rare true-meaning-of-the-word innovators. He creates refreshing, socially enlightened hip-hop sprung from the roots of the early-’90s drag and ball culture and runs his own hip hop label Camp & Street. Before he performs at Different Class this Saturday 13 August we’re sharing you are favourite songs from the Manhattan native.

Le1f – BOOM

This jam is taken from his ‘Hey EP’ and was produced by Popcaan’s beat maker Dubbel Dutch.

Le1f – Spa Day

Together with “Wut” one of Le1f’s biggest hits. Leif and a number of his friends get the wax and wash treatment and end up in a jacuzzi just for kicks.

Le1f – Koi

No doubt one of the most exciting songs released in 2015. The Sophie-produced single is taken from his latest album ‘Riot Boi’.

Le1f plays Different Class at 019, Ghent on 13 August. The festival is free for members. Become a member here.
