Questions And Answers With Leek Mali !
What do you want people to take away after listening to your music?
That it’s okay to be an Outkast. There’s is a story for any & everything; no idea’s original. I want people to live through me & my words if they cannot live for themselves.
Any new music coming out soon?
Next To Godliness – EP
What is your greatest achievement as a musician?
Releasing my mixtape ‘College Daze’, I worked on that project for 9 months while being a full time student; I still am, c/o 2021! I put my whole life into that project, I worked so hard, literally I had about 3 different jobs struggling to pay for studio time, but I sacrificed and made it happen. I even threw a party in my college town to celebrate and a lot of people came out and showed love, it was litty!
Do you produce your own music? If not, who do you work with?
No. In the beginning of my career I rapped over regular YouTube beats, it was a struggle. But eventually I started to get more knowledgeable while simultaneously getting better at my craft and started reaching out to producers exclusively. Rev (@Revenxt96) out of Newark, NJ will be producing my next couple projects.
Who is one artist you wish you could work with?
Tell us about any new music you have coming out? When is coming out? What is it about?
‘Next To Godliness – EP’ will be releasing late August on BandCamp for the specific reason of seeing my real fanbase and what steps I need to take to grow as an Independent Artist. This EP is about a being that’s living next to the life of whatever so-called “Godliness” is; a play on my alter-ego “Child of God in Disguise”. Also, a lot of social consciousness inspired by Dick Gregory.
What does a day inside your shoes look like?
A day inside of my shoes looks like living life for constant answers, always making moves to inspire or be inspired. I’m a pretty chill guy, I like to have fun with my friends and do “fun things”, whatever “fun things” are lol. I live life in a spontaneous way, I wake up and have new ideas to stay active everyday.
Anything else you want the audience to know about you?
I’m very approachable, I don’t have much of a “rapper-ego”, very down to Earth; I love to spread love! Also, I’m the best rapper alive.
