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