Some great hip hop artists have graced NPR’s Tiny Desk this year, like Buddy and Zaytoven. The latest entry on that list is ski-masked Brooklynite Leikeli47, who showed off her rapping chops over jazzy arrangements.
The typical Tiny Desk performance is three songs long—but Leikeli47 went a step further. Her 17-minute set comprises six songs from her 2017 album, Wash & Set, and her 2018 release, Acrylic. Supported by a live band dressed as Transportation Security Administration (TSA) officers, she served up bar after bar, dripping swagger and “Attitude.”
