With her hit single ‘On The Road’ currently blowing up speakers across the country, UK’s grime queen, Lady Leshurr is thrilled to announce her return to Australian shores this April/May for her sophomore headline tour. Alongside a prime spot on the Groovin’ The Moo festival circuit, the acclaimed MC will visit Sydney’s Oxford Art Factory on Wednesday May 2, Melbourne’s Corner Hotel on Friday May 4, and Perth’s Jack Rabbit Slims on Friday May 11, exhibiting her hip-hop virtuosity to her ever-growing fan base.
Lady Leshurr is carrying the flag as one of the most exciting and engaging rap talents to emerge in aeons, gaining global recognition for her quick-witted rap soaked with a unique blend of humour and self-empowerment. Cementing her place as the UK’s most prominent female rapper, Lady Leshurr’s freestyle series Queen’s Speech has set the internet ablaze, clocking up a staggering 110 million views on YouTube collectively.
By the age of 29, the prolific artist has released nine mixtapes, four EPs and chart-topping singles including the viral collaboration ‘Where Are You Now?’ blending old grime and new, featuring none other than the godfather of grime himself, Wiley. Garnering further support from hip-hop heavyweights Akon, Timbaland, Erykah Badu and Busta Rhymes, Leshurr is set to continue her meteoric rise with the release of her firth mixtape UNSTABLE due out later this year.
Pushing the almost exclusively male-dominant grime scene into the mainstream spotlight alongside peers Skepta, Dizzee Rascal and Stormzy, the Birmingham-born lyricist has been praised by the likes of Pitchfork, Noisey and The Fader and is touted as the “The Queen of Grime” by NME.
Following an impressive sold-out Australian tour last year, Lady Leshurr is now gearing up for her triumphant return down under. Bringing her energy, sass and pure-fire beats – these royal performances are not to be missed!
