NYC-Based Rapper LE1F, Who Happens to Be Gay, Makes TV Debut on Letterman: VIDEO
After the performance, Dave tried to cut a deal for Le1f's shoes.
Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...
Le1f has a new EP coming out on Brooklyn-based Terrible Records (known for indie bands like Grizzly Bear).
Newsweek recently asked him if he feels like the media pigeonholes him as a gay rapper:
I feel like some people do, some people don’t. And I don’t really care at this point. I can’t be bothered [laughs]. At this point where I’ve gotten so much pressure, like ridiculous stuff, I don’t care...The headlines and things I’ve gotten for some real serious press. At this point I know that I’m making the music I want to make regardless of how people talk about my music on the Internet. I don’t feel pressure to make anything because of how people talk about me. I don’t feel much changed by the fact that I was called a gay rapper a lot… And there are lots of people who might just only know “Wut” and that’s fine. Just the fact that I have art that’s out there that people are paying attention to and enjoying is rewarding enough for me to not even be thinking about whatever else is going on.
