There’s a theory amongst certain wackjobs that aliens are responsible for the majority of humanity’s greatest achievements. The pyramids, Stonehenge, Nazca Lines, whatever. I mean, obviously that’s a lot of bullsht, but how else do you explain New York City rapper Le1f? I mean, I’m not saying Le1f’s booty-poppin’ genius is the result of extraterrestrial life forms, but I’m also not NOT saying it. And now Le1f is poised for an alien invasion so sweet the dance floors won’t even care that they’re being conquered: the release of his first work for Terrible/XL Recordings, the Hey EP.
March 11 sees the EP’s digital release, and come May 6 it’s vinyl 12-inch time. A full-length LP will follow at a later point. Hey features production from Matrixxman, Harry B, Dubbel Dutch, and Boody, who collaborated on the insane track “Soda” with Le1f before. You can listen to all of track three, “Boom,” below:
