In a genre known for its homophobia, Le1f, a New York rapper who isn’t timid about his sexuality, makes his debut with quite possibly the song of the summer called “Wut.” I’ve been watching the video on repeat where Le1F raps faster than Busta Rhymes, booty dances in a nineties style grind with sexy girls in the background; he then sits on muscle-men’s laps and twirls chewing gum around his finger like a valley girl. Le1f says he was greatly inspired by Dizzee Rascall and M.I.A., which you can hear in the catchy, finger-wagging, face-scrunching background beats. Watch it now so you can say you knew him before anyone else did.
