"...from this incredible interview with Leelee that it’s crystal clear: she is so much more than a female rapper. Leelee is iconic and inspiring, lending something brand new to the conversation from within the community, all generated from such an authentic place inside. There is deep understanding, street sensibility, and grit that allows Leelee to see such complexities with so much clarity and what her role in influencing these spaces for the better could look like." - Jay Mercado
“I have done the most in the past wanting to try and find my sound,” Jay told me over text after I’d listened to the EP (and screamed at how amazing it is). This EP is the opposite of that statement, everything about it feels as natural as breathing. It’s an account of digging to find yourself and finding that you love who you’ve become and who you’ve always been.
