Lady Leshurr has 2017 plotted out like an army attack.
Lady Leshurr, real name Melesha O’Garro, shared the second instalment of her UNLESHED musical series, featuring a dark instrumental accompanied by her unique flow and wordplay. Although not as popular as her Queen’s Speech series, UNLESHED shows a different, more serious side to the Birmingham wordsmith, which is refreshing to see.
The tune begins with her traditional ‘shot-sending’ where she calls negative people ‘they/them’ in a similar vein to DJ Khaled but quickly transpires into Lady Leshurr revealing her battle with anxiety, depression and the fact that racism is still a prevalent issue, which was unexpected to say the least, giving how the song began.
In the comments of the YouTube video Leshurr revealed that more songs are on their way, followed by an EP and then revealed that an album believed to be titled Queen of the Scene is on its way, giving us a lot to look forward to.
Until then, you can hear #UNLESHED 2 below.
