LE1F Riot Boi on LP
New York rapper/producer LE1F aka Khalif Diouf, is one of the most hyped artists in the underground hip-hop scene today. His debut record, Riot Boi, to be released by XL Recordings/Terrible Records in the fall of 2015, features some of music's hottest electronic producers like Sophie, Evian Christ, and Dubbel Dutch not to mention guest appearances by Junglepussy & House of LaDosha, DonChristian and Dev Hynes & Miss Geri. LE1F tackles issues such as black racial justice, transgender rights, and access to clean water.
"I've dreamed of recording for XL since I was like 15 and I'm super excited to be working with all of my Terrible labelmates," explained LE1F to Billboard. "I'll be doing the same stuff that I've been doing but on another level. It's an interesting challenge and I like that."
"Hip-hop is probably the genre that I personally listen to the most, if I'm being honest," says Terrible Records co-founder Ethan Silverman. "It's always been something that I was passionate about and this felt appropriate. LE1F fits perfectly into the Terrible spectrum of personalities."
