Brooklyn rapper Leikeli47 wears a signature ski mask to keep the focus on her infectious and sometimes experimentally raucous rhyme and production styles, which express her empowering, funny, sad, and thought-provoking experiences as a black woman on releases including 2018's Acrylic.

Growing up shy, lonely, and bullied in Brooklyn, Leikeli47 knew she wanted to make music at an early age. Inspired by Lauryn Hill, Lil' Kim, Wu-Tang and Jay-Z, she began creating songs in the early 2000s, using whatever she could to make beats (she once forged a rhythm by tapping on a microphone's pop filter). She debuted with 2012's self-produced mixtape LK-47 and followed it with 2013's Flower Shop EP. By the time she delivered LK-47, Pt. 2 in 2014, she was opening for Skrillex and Diplo at Madison Square Garden. After signing to RCA, Leikeli47 released a self-titled EP on the label. Along with guesting on tracks by Baauer ("Day Ones"), AlunaGeorge ("Mean What I Mean"), and Pussy Riot ("Straight Outta Vagina"), in 2016 Jay-Z featured her single "Fuck the Summer Up" on a streaming playlist of the same name. Leikeli47's music appeared multiple times on the soundtrack to HBO's series Insecure in 2017, the same year she released her debut album for RCA, Wash & Set. The first album in a trilogy exploring beauty, empowerment, and identity, Leikeli followed it with 2018's Acrylic, a harder-edged set of tracks featuring production by Clyde N Harry, Charlie Burrill, Mike Barney, and Gavin Williams. ~ Heather Phares & Fred Thomas, Rovi
Yung Baby Tate
Yung Baby Tate
Yung Baby Tate hails from Atlanta flaunting a rainbow-worthy variety of vibrant talents as an entertainer, coined namely a singer-songwriter, rapper, producer, dancer, actress, and self-acclaimed, “dope ass chick". Music also seemed predestined. Tate actually attended the 1996 GRAMMY® Awards in the womb of her mother Dionne Farris, of iconic rap group, Arrested Development. Growing up as a kid in Decatur, Georgia, she developed a passion for nineties R&B and Hip-Hop, citing Brandy, SWV, Missy Elliott and more as influences in addition to pop muse Gwen Stefani.

The budding songstress made her introduction with a sharpened style of her own with 2015’s ROYGBIV EP. Tate later returned with her 2018 breakout project BOYS EP, which produced viral hit and fan favorite “Bob,” clocking nearly a half-million cumulative streams within six months. Widespread acclaim followed from The FADER, Creative Loafing, Mass Appeal and many more. Now, with the release of GIRLS Yung BabyTate is ready to take her place among the most emerging artists of 2019!
