Watch Leikeli47’s NPR ‘Tiny Desk’ concert

Six swaggering cuts with jazzy live arrangements.

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.”
