Leeky Bandz - New York's Next Up
Hailing from the Lower East Side of Manhattan, New York, rising artist Leeky Bandz has gained momentum in 2018 with his ultra-New York vibe. Currently branding himself under the moniker Lil Italy, this 15-year-old spitter has caught the eye of many as he fully embodies what makes New York rappers so great. From his steadfast flow to his bully demeanor, many would agree that his age does not reflect his craft. It seems as if each new song of his achieves new highs via Soundcloud and Youtube platforms, with his latest track “Check Up” featuring PnB Rock proving to be his hottest yet.
With no official album or mixtape produced, the success that Leeky has gained thus far is impressive, to say the least. Factor in his age, and the current wave of New York “rappers” storming the scene, and one starts to appreciate this young prospect’s talent. His grit is in full form in the track “My Story,” which illustrates just what the title implies. Aside from the hardcore trench-type sound that he fully embodies, he also displays the ability to produce an upbeat banger in his remix of Drake’s “God’s Plan.”
Forget whatever sound you are typically into: Leeky Bandz can deliver it all. Keep a keen ear out for his New York delivery, as it’s sure to cross your path one way or another.
