New York rapper Le1f announces European tour

Le1f brings Dark York to Europe for a brief tour.

The man behind one of our favorite mixtapes of the year, Le1f has been grouped in with the nascent “queer rap” scene, despite his desire to not “make gay NYC rap a ‘thing.’”

With sexuality, gender, and race at the forefront of his nimble, wry raps, that may be a foregone conclusion, but if gender politics aren’t for you, Le1f has partnered with underground producers like Nguzunguzu, 5kin and Bone5, and Morri$ for his bass-driven beats.

Starting this month, Le1f is touring Europe, stopping in Germany, Austria, France, Portugal, England, and Sweden. Watch Le1f’s dance lesson of a video for Dark York standout ‘Wut’ below; the tour dates follow.

29/10 Paris, FR – Point Ephemere
