Leikeli47 descends into Atlanta tonight with openers Yung Baby Tate and Deante Hitchcock (April 4) at The Loft @ Center Stage in support of her latest critically-acclaimed sophomore album Acrylic.

Acrylic finds the masked rapper expressing her high-beamed energy, inspiration, and humbleness with unflinching sincerity.

“For me, Acrylic is another creative invitation into my world,” Leikeli47 told The Fader. “It’s about walking our campuses and down our streets, coming into our neighborhoods and really understanding…why we move the way we move, why we tick the way we tick, why we party the way we party, why we love the way we love, why we’re resilient…. Of course, you got to be invited by us.”

Making her ATL headlining debut, Leikeli is ready to deliver an electric performance laced with spitfire rhymes from hits like “Girl Blunt,” “Top Down” and “Attitude.”. From dancehall, to gospel, to radio-friendly pop, and gangsta rap, her effortless infusion of genres is bound to create one –– epic ––set.

You can expect the mysterious emcee to have her face hidden but hopefully fans will get a glimpse in to her enchanting soul.

AT&T will serve as co-creator and exclusive presenting sponsor of the event, expanding its reach and providing greater access for those seeking to become future leaders.

“Now more than ever we need to own our culture,” Revolt chairman Sean “Diddy” Combs said in a press release. “At the Revolt Hip Hop Summit we will empower young people with sessions on the issues they care about. From entrepreneurship and economic empowerment to social justice, we’ll have the provocative conversations not happening anywhere else. With the support of AT&T, we will provide perspective on music and media that could only come from industry veterans committed to our future.”

The event will take place from July 25-27 in Atlanta and Oct. 24-26 in Los Angeles. In addition to showcasing performances from major and emerging artists, the Summit will be  an immersive experience in the world of Hip Hop and culture, offering young people real-life networking experience and helping them to develop and hone the crucial skills business owners need to grow their companies.

“One of the hardest parts of breaking into any field is building a network and making connections with people that can help inspire dreams into reality,” said AT&T SVP-advertising and creative services Valerie Vargas in a press release. “AT&T is a longstanding champion of mentorship across both business and entertainment and we hope the opportunities stemming from the Revolt Hip Hop Summit help young people find their place.”

Headliners and ticket sales for the Atlanta and LA events will be announced soon.
