CRITIC REVIEWS

Like the best of M.I.A, Cardi B and Kamaiyah rolled into one, Brooklyn rapper Leikeli47’s second full-length record alternates between moments of introspection and thrilling braggadocio. Her strength is her duality

Highsnobiety

If Wash and Set was about growth, then Acrylic is about patience in transformation. Getting acrylics requires patience, but it is also a lesson in how beauty is a collective process.

Acrylic celebrates black life and black love with song-length homages to her native Bed-Stuy and the person she became there.

Leikeli47's 2nd album is pretty great. Fun, individually unique with some deeper moments. A lot more varied than her first though the new places she tries to go with her sound end up being the weakest moments on the album especially Droppin'. I particularly liked the skits (Walk-Ins to Acrylic) and Roll Call since it's a shout out to HBCU's and black greek organizations.
