Lady Leshurr




Melesha O’Garro (born 15 December 1988), known professionally as Lady Leshurr, is an English rapper, singer, and producer. She is best known for her Queen’s Speech series of freestyles, the fourth of which went viral in 2016. The Rap Game season 2 competitor Nia Kay stated that Leshurr was one of her influences due to her uniqueness and rap skill. Her subsequent freestyle, Queen’s Speech 5, was called “brilliant” and “2015’s crowning freestyle” by Spin. Born to parents from the Caribbean Isle of St. Kitts, her first foray was into poetry and writing at age six but she decided that writing music would bring her to a wider audience, releasing her first mixtape at age fourteen.

She won second place in the Best Female category of the Official Mixtape Awards 2011. To complement the music releases, she has designed a range of merchandise, the “Friggin L” clothing line named after her 2011 mixtape Friggin L. In October 2011 Leshurr was described as “the one to watch” by Paul Lester of The Guardian. Leshurr has named Eminem, Missy Elliott, and Lil Wayne as her primary influences.
