Mona Leshurr: The Art Of The MC

LONDON, August 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Lady Leshurr celebrates the launch of new E.P. with London parties

Lady Leshurr will be throwing a launch party in London this summer, in name of her new E.P. 'Mona Leshurr'.

The Birmingham born UK rap artist, who recently performed at The Royal Albert Hall as part of the 'Urban Classic Prom', - described by the BBC as 'a dynamic meeting of musical cultures' - will be holding the guestlist-only event at Westbourne Studios Club, Ladbroke Grove, on August 31 st, and bringing together urban and classical music to create a classic but contemporary sound when she performs tracks from her aptly titled E.P.:

"I called it Mona Leshurr because of Mona Lisa; that's a portrait, a work of art, and this is my first work of art. It's like a masterpiece for me.

When I first started working on it I didn't know it was going to be an E.P…. I just make music in the studio, and whatever happens, happens- but I started to put [the songs] into order, and see that there was a concept.

I love classical music- I've always wanted to include it, so I just thought it was the perfect time to use it in the mix. I can't wait for everyone to hear it, it's probably some of the best work that I've done."

The main launch will be followed by a party for the under 18s on Sunday 1 st September, which is being held at the G-SHOCK East store on Brick Lane in conjunction with the store's re-opening.

The Mona Leshurr E.P. follows Lady Leshurr's release of 'Lego' in 2011, but she's already well established for her mixtapes - most famously, her cover of the Chris Brown/ Busta Rhymes collaboration 'Look At Me Now', which picked up 100,000 views in half a day on WorldStarHiphop and led to a performance at Wireless Festival in 2012. Previous to that, she was featured after Plan B at The BBC Introducing stage in 2010, which led to a slot at Glastonbury later that year, and has since supported the likes of Azealia Banks and Young Jeezy.

As an artist, MC/singer and producer, she's vivacious, innovative and, above all, true to herself. Leshurr recently turned down a US contract with Atlantic Records, and it's not the first time she's said 'thanks but no thanks' to some of the big industry players-
