Female rapper Lykez is a phenomenal UK artist, her distinctive lyrical style and clever use of words, alongside her innate ability to command a stage and captivate an audience like a seasoned veteran, make her a serious force to be reckoned with!
‘Lykez Me Now’ is the debut release from this feisty female, and features a collection of 6 tracks. The ‘in your face’ lead track "Ain’t Even Nothing" grabs you by the shoulders, and gives you a good shake to make sure you are paying full attention to the lyrical blasting coming through your speakers. And now we’ve got your attention…
Stand out freestyle track "I.T." showcases Lykez’s lyrical wittiness as she plays on words cleverly using computer parts for sexual innuendos. After exploring a darker edgy side on ‘I’m A Producer’, she follows on with ‘Not Your Hair‘, and the remix on which Lykez brings together the cream of UK female MC talent on one track, and joins forces with Leshurr, Lioness and Stush on the hilarious and female empowering take on hair weave and extensions. The E.P. signs off with the uplifting ‘Sky’s Not the Limit’.
Production on the E.P. comes courtesy of John Hendicott (Chipmunk - Chip Diddy Chip), Jamal Hadaway (Lethal Bizzle/Sway/Smiler) and Scratcha DVA (Wiley/Tinie Tempah/Scorcher).
Selected as a coveted ‘BBC Introducing’ artist, Lykez recently performed at Reading and Leeds Festival on the ‘BBC Introducing stage’. She SMASHED her set with an energetic and lively on-stage performance.
Lykez will be touring schools across the London boroughs later this year where she will be promoting her E.P. release and interacting with young people through her work with crime prevention company ‘Only Connect’ (who work with ex offenders and youths at risk of crime).
Destined for great things, Lykez has already had some great achievements to date in her career including supporting Method Man and Red Man in London and Bristol, T in the Park, Glastonbury, Big Chill and Underage Festival to name a few.
Watch out for Lady Lykez in 2013 where she will be following up her E.P. with her debut single release ‘I Love My Butt’.
