Dark Light

Quick post to say I totally dig this newly dropped track by Le1f (30 minutes ago in fact at the time of writing those pithy words). “Ooh (Truffle Butter)” just rocks any sock off. You’ll soon be singalong I tell you. Who remembers these few lines from his “Boom” will know what I’m talking about :

Jiggy, gully
Puff puff pass
Smoke real slow
Drive real fast
You know how we do
Make ’em all say “oooh la la”

It’s just what I needed right now. Something to twerk along to today !

Quick Wikipedia biography :

Born in Manhattan, New York, Diouf studied ballet and modern dance, attended the Concord Academy with the class of 2007 and earned his degree in dance from Wesleyan University before returning to the city to become a rapper.

Initially known for producing tracks for hip-hop group Das Racist, such as their popular debut single “Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell”, he became known as a solo artist with the release of his debut mixtape Dark York, released in April 2012. Its lead single, the 5kinAndBone5-produced “Wut” garnered attention as the standout track from the project and manifested into a music video in June 2012.

In November 2012, Diouf was featured on the song “Fuckin the DJ” by Mykki Blanco (which he also co-produced with collaborator, Boody) from his Cosmic Angel: The Illuminati Prince/ss mixtape. Later that month, Diouf released a joint EP with Boody, titled Liquid, which was followed by an accompanying video for the promotional single, “Soda”. His second mixtape Fly Zone was released to generally favorable reviews in January 2013 and later spawned a video for the successful “Spa Day”. The mixtape featured guest appearances from artists such as Heems, DonChristian, and Kitty.

In September 2013, Diouf released his third full length mixtape Tree House and later accompanied it with a music video for the second single “Hush Bb”.

In February 2013, Terrible Records announced Diouf’s record deal as well as his latest EP, a five-track project titled Hey, which was later released on March 11, 2014.
