Thoughts:

Leikeli47 is mysterious, masked figure from Brooklyn who raps about life in her neighborhood and the challenges of Black women in 2018 America.  The rhymes are strong and the beats are fine.  The music is fun, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t serious.  This album is a throwback to old school rap of the 80s while simultaneously forward looking.
