Good Afternoon Everyone! Hope that you all are having a very good day today! We’re getting closer to the end of the week, one more day before we reach the weekend, which also means we’re nearing Halloween! I’m not really sure if I’m super excited for Halloween, but I’m not seeming to mind it this year, normally I just wait for it to bypass, but this year is different! I’ve been feeling pretty inspired this season and so I feel that could be the reason that I’ve been okay with October this year! Now I feel like I might’ve already said this, but I’ll say it again for anyone that may be new or just haven’t heard me say it before….now like I just stated this month I’ve been feeling oddly inspired and with October being the month that we’re in, I’ve been trying to attempt to theme out my blog posts as well as my podcast episodes!
So far I feel I’ve done more blog posts then podcast episodes when it comes to things that remind me of Halloween! I’ll get back to podcasting soon and see if I’ll be able to throw in a few ideas involving Halloween themed topics before the month ends officially, for now I want to talk about a specific artist that is a little out of comfort for me, although I do listen to her often, to explain the kind of music that she does is a little hard to do, especially since she’s from a whole other country, but I will give it a try and see if I’d be able to properly explain everything in the best way I know how!
I actually did record an episode about this artist recently, but I didn’t quite like the way it came out, I was very nervous and also didn’t feel like I did it justice to how I wanted it to come out, so I most liking will be redoing that episode probably tomorrow for Saturday and see if I can get it to come out better! I want to be able to present it in the best way that I’m able to, in my own words of course, because that’s how good I feel she is, so stay tune for that one!
This post is going to be a bit of an introduction kind of post, I don’t know how well it will be, but I shall do my best with it and hope that it goes well….so today I would like to introduce you all to Lady Leshurr, if you’re not quite familiar with her, which I feel most people won’t be at least those who are from the US mainly….although there might be some out there who are from the US that have come across her and listen to her like I do, if so then you’ll know who I’m talking about! For the new people though…..Lady Leshurr is a UK Grime artist, so an MC rapper, she also sings too, but she’s mostly known for the way she freestyles on the mic, It’s the best way I can explain it.
Now if you’re asking what is Grime!? That’s a whole other thing, but to specify a little on it to how I can describe it….Grime music is pretty much just like our rap music, but better! At least I think it to be better anyway, this coming from someone who normally doesn’t choose rap as her go to kind of music, I’m sure I’ve already said this, but I’m not actually that big of a fan of rap, however I do listen to it at times, it just depends on the artist really for me! Although I have specific music genre’s that I like, I’m pretty open minded to music so I’ll listen to anything as long as it’s good and as long as I feel something with it…back to Lady Lesh though….like I said she is an amazing female Grime artist, I can’t even begin to express how great she is!
I’ve been listening to her for quite some time now and let me tell you she’s just something else!! Her style in the way she does music is on a whole other level and to explain it to you guys, I feel like I wouldn’t be able to do it properly! When it comes to Grime music I’ll be the first to say that I’m inexperience I’ll be honest, even though I’ve heard a few artists within the Grime scene, I’m the wrong person to sit here and try and give you my in depth thoughts of it…..all I can say is with Grime you get a whole different experience, but it’s so worth it! and with Lady Leshurr, you definitely get an experience!
She’s the kind of artist that will always leave you blown away! The way she is when it comes to her music, it’s like with her, it’s not always serious, but it is serious at the same time….it’s hard to explain so I don’t know if I’m makes sense here, but it’s the truth! I’ve never heard anyone like her before, she’s weird in the best way possible and I love that about her, I think that’s why she’s one of my favorite artists to listen to, because she’s got such a uniqueness to her that you can’t ignore and if you try to ignore her, she’s the kind of person that she’ll make sure you notice her to where you won’t be able to ignore her again, I love it!
Like I said she’s on a whole other level…..
One thing you’ll notice with her is when you hear her songs, most of the time she’s just joking, however there may be some hidden truths within them I won’t lie to you, sometimes it’s hard to differentiate, but they’re not always meant to be taken seriously, it’s just Lady Leshurr, being Lady Leshurr! Now that being said that doesn’t mean that she won’t tell you how it it, if she’s got to tell you straight trust and believe she will and when she does you won’t be able to say much about it, that’s how good she is and that’s the other reason why I prefer Grime music over our kind of rap, because they all are like that at least some of the artists that I’ve listened to from the Grime scene so far!
They will be extremely real with you and will speak the truth always…..it’s not just with their songs, It’s what they stand for and who they are and when it comes to music that’s what I like! I like listening to music that speaks something real, music that has meaning where you feel it….I don’t know how else to explain it, but I’ve grown to really enjoy and embrace what Grime music is, I respect what it is they do!
When it comes to Lady Leshurr, I’ve grown to really appreciate what she does and how she does it, I’ve become a really big fan of hers….I really feel her to be such an amazing artist! I do need to listen to more of her stuff, I’ve only really listened to a few of her Queen Speeches (my favorite’s being 3, 4, 5, 6 & 7) as well as her song Black Panther, I love that song! I’ve been meaning to really listen to her newer stuff though, the only recent one that I’ve heard from her is Brenda, but I think that was just a freestyle that she did on her Youtube Channel other than that I’ve not heard any other tracks from her, which I know I need to!
I always have it in my head to listen to them, but I haven’t gotten around to it yet, but I will!
Lady Leshurr is one of the best UK Grime artists I’ve ever listened to! I do have a few other favorite artists in Grime that I like, but she’s one of my top favorites and I would definitely recommend anyone that’s looking for new music or is just looking for something new to experience to check her out! While you’re doing that definitely check out other Grime artists because I’m telling you, you won’t be disappointed, the only way you’ll be disappointed is if it’s just not your thing, that’s fine if it’s not, everyone likes different things, but if you are at least interested, give Lady Leshurr a listen as well as all the other Grime artists too, you’ll be in for a real treat!
Seeing that we’re getting close to Halloween and going on about themes I wanted to share one of Lady Leshurr’s songs Queen Speech 6 one of my all time favorites, it’s got that Halloween vibe going in a way, I mean she released it on Halloween, she even says Happy Halloween in the song so in my book it’s considered Halloween like! She even dressed up for it in the video so go ahead and give it a listen, it’s a great song, you’ll get a kick out of it as you’re enjoying the song! If you want to check out her other stuff, all you got to do is keep listening to her, but yeah go over there and give her some support and love, she deserves it!
All The Love ❤ ❤
