The 7 days In advance | Pop: An Indie Rapper, Loud and Proud

December 22nd, 2013

A sortable calendar of noteworthy cultural functions in the New York area, chosen by Instances critics.

The indie rapper Le1f (born Khalif Diouf) is an oddball and an empire builder: an brazenly homosexual (or as a single of his tracks puts it, “gayngsta”) rapper with a diploma in dance who also operates a label, Camp &amp Road. He created the Das Racist observe “Combination Pizza Bell and Taco Hut” just before commencing his personal occupied, prolific career, such as two generous cost-free mixtapes. He has a lower voice, a startling wardrobe and an ear for sparse but insistent tracks.

Le1f (pronounced leaf) offers about himself and stands up aggressively for homosexual culture in rhymes that are generally leisurely, though he can velocity up to a rat-a-tat staccato. “I represent every color in the rainbow,” he declares.

His late-evening show also involves his collaborators and label mates DonChristian and Boody Rahel, amid many other attendees. (eleven:fifty nine p.m. Saturday, Brooklyn Bowl, sixty one Wythe Avenue, Williamsburg, 718-963-3369.)
