If the royal monarchs organised a search for the new queen of British rap, it’s certain that all roads would lead toward Lady Leshurr. In the past twelve months, millions have pledged an oath of allegiance to rapper through her Queen’s Speech series (currently at fifty million views on YouTube, and counting), she’s sold out shows from New York to Brixton, and attracted the attention of international hip-hop heavyweights like Timbaland, Erykah Badu, and Busta Rhymes.

With her debut album on the way, Lady Leshurr has firmly stamped her place atop the throne, standing deservedly between Dizzee Rascal and Ms Dynamite. Yet it hasn’t always been this way. Where some artists are quickly thrust into fame, Leshurr’s story is one that highlights the importance of determination, strong, level-headed focus, and a continued renewal in self-belief, as well as being able to sharpen verse upon verse with a razor teethed technical ability that far outweighs many of her peers.
