The first time actor/comedian Damien Lemon saw Mr. MFN eXquire live at SOB’s, he also watched Troy Ave as eXquo’s special guest. It was, “impeccably disrespectful,” he told Dallas Penn. You had to “salute the ignorance” as he so eloquently put it. This week Brooklyn’s own, Troy Ave a.k.a Harry Powder will headline the next Hot 97 showcase. Listen to Troy’s newest banger, below.
TROY AVE “SO AMBITIOUS”
Supporting Powder on the bill is Leikeli47, another BK native. It’ll be interesting to see how 2013 shapes up for Leikeli. Between her mysterious identity which is cloaked behind a mask in all her videos, and her multi-talented skill to sing, rap, and song write. She’s teamed up with Curt@in$ for a track off her LK-47 mixtape, and recently found a lane with sneakerheads in Brand Jordan’s #XX8DaysOfFlight campaign. The mask she’s wearing in the new visual is priced at 3K, designed by Freehand Profit. Their collaboration put a new spin on the concept of flipping Jordans. Check for Leikeli to steal Thursday’s Hot 97 Who’s Next Showcase as Troy did years back.
