Last January, Big Baby Gandhi took to Vimeo, uploading a four-minute freestyle that, according to the video’s title, proved him to be “the best rapper” full stop. And while last week’s No1 2 Look Up 2 doesn’t quite make that claim defensible, it’s still a great listen, full of stream-of-consciousness flows and genuinely clever punchlines. Meanwhile, in some circles, opener Le1f might be best known as the producer who reworked “The Ha” into the beat for Das Racist’s “Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell,” but that should change when he drops his Dark York mixtape the day before the show. Tonight, he follows another Greedhead rapper in Lakutis and a DJ set from label boss Heems.
