A truly unique artist, Leddie’s sound is unmistakable. Addressing the challenges of being a female rapper from Teesside with headlong determination, and to critical acclaim, They Wanna Know is a classic example of Leddie MC’s trademark ballsy lyricism and assertive delivery. It’s a sharp-tongued mouthy marathon of a track, with a seam of dark humour and sarcasm.

This musical self-portrait reflects on the preconceptions and judgments the MC has had to tackle from the prying public, friends and the media. Introspective without being egotistic, Leddie illustrates a journey of self-development, giving us a glimpse into her personal life and the critique she has to deal with. A hooky bassline carries the track on relentlessly, with rocky guitar riffs bring colour to the verses. Effortless rhymes fly with untiring energy; the writing is authentic, raw and devoid of clichés.

“It’s addressing people that feel like they need to find out your problems.” She explains. “Not to try and help you with them, but to comfort themselves by the fact that you might be worse off than them.”
