Over the last couple of years, the New York rapper Le1f has built up a serious body of work for himself. On the mixtapes Dark York, Fly Zone, and Tree House, he’s built up a clubby, sensuous, theatrical sound and proved himself to be an absolute monster of a rapper in the process. He sounds like absolutely nobody else currently working, and it’s time he finally dropped something that cost actual money. Next week, he’ll release his new EP Hey, which features the 2012 anthem “Wut” and the slitery new single “Boom.” And right now, you can stream the whole thing at Pitchfork.
