Le1f's 2012 mixtape Dark York put him at the center of a whirlwind of trend pieces on New York City’s fresh crop of gay rappers. Subsequent records—an EP with producer Boody that leans heavily on ambient techno, plus a new mixtape, Tree House, that sounds like an R&B album beamed in from the Antares system—prove not only that “gay rapper” is too confining a category to stick him in but also that “rapper” might not suffice either. —Miles Raymer, 2013
