Get Up On This With Jensen Karp: Leikeli47 – Wash & Set

Every Thursday morning Jensen Karp brings our attention to something that we may not know about yet or something we may have overlooked in the past. 

Now it's time to "Get Up On This."

Today Jensen introduces us to Leikeli47 and her 2017 album Wash & Set. The 20 something year old Female Rapper is out of Brooklyn New York and that’s all we really know about her for sure. She is a completely mysterious and hidden person because every time she performs on stage, she wears a full ski-mask. Leikeli47 has never actually been seen in person.

Growing up, she suffered from severe shyness so she needed to find a way to make music and perform but also find a way to remain anonymous. She found a solution to both of these problems by wearing a ski mask. She started off by wearing a black or pink mask, but now several designers have sent her customized masks. She released an album last year, “Wash & Set” but it never got the attention it deserved. She’s one of those genre bending musicians that blends different styles to create something awesome and if you like that style Leikeli47 is for you. Check out a few songs from “Wash & Set”.

The first song is "Miss Me" and it gives you a good idea of her up-tempo stuff.

“2nd fiddle” gives you a little bit of a different feeling, but another awesome song.

This song is “Don’t do it” and Jensen loves this song.
