Turn Over A New Le1f: ‘Damn Son’ Is Sign Of What’s To Come From The ‘Treehouse’ Mixtape

While other rappers are stuck bragging about their basic-ass mainstream designer goods and the low-self-esteem-having hoe they just slapped, New York lyricist and performer Le1f brings a welcome, and far more sophisticated swagger to the hip-hop community. His vocal style leans icy and minimal, and each track he releases cranks the attitude level up a notch, a clue that Treehouse, his upcoming mixtape set to drop on September 10th, is destined to be a next-level carry.

Hear Le1f namedrop Spike Lee, quote Tupac, and chastise people who smell bad in “Damn Son,” this serious new tune produced by Shy Guy. Get ready for utter mayhem when the full mixtape drops, because it’s clear that Le1f won’t stand for being tokenized—and if you don’t like it, you should probably just make like a tree.
