Leikeli47 Doesn’t Have Time for Your “Attitude” in New Video
Leikeli47 continues to push the boundaries of creativity with her complex visuals. On Tuesday (Feb. 20), the rapper dropped off the brash new video for "Attitude," her seventh visual to come from songs off her debut album, Wash & Set.
The RCA Records artist sets the tone for season two of Insecure season with the bold track, which appears on the show's soundtrack.
The song and coinciding video feature a plethora of references to the Golden Globes-nominated show. The Brooklyn native is joined by Ballroom star Buffy Khan throughout the visual, who lip-synchs Leikeli47's lyrics. Leikeli dons numerous colorways of her signature masked look, which she previously explained in an interview on Hot 97 is meant to, "Keep the focus on [her] art. I want to be heard more than I want to be seen."
The "Money" rapper compares Beyoncé to a god-like figure on the track and even takes aim at her detractors rapping, "I could see the bitch was fake/So like Chapo I escaped/And I told dat ho no/Like my ex you got to go."
Last fall, Leikali47 has a solid buzz going, appearing in BET's Hip-Hop's Fire Femcees cypher at the BET Hip Hop Awards in October, performing alongside the Grammy-nominated Rapsody, Kash Doll and Tokyo Jetz.
Check out the intricate "Attitude" video, which serves up numerous references to ABC's Insecure, and its Los Angeles setting below.
