Pronounced like the thing that falls off trees, rapper Le1f is bringing his fresh brand of hip-hop and rap to the Motor City. Born and raised in New York City, Le1f released critically acclaimed mixtapes and EP’s before his solo debut album, Riot Boi, dropped in November. Partly inspired by the riot grrrl movement of the ’90s and partly by Missy Elliott and M.I.A., Le1f also has a degree in dance, so he tends to meld the art of dance and hip-hop into his own aesthetic. His music videos and live performances are energetic, just like his music.
