Raleigh, NC

Lesthegenius received his first national break through an unlikely outlet for most musicians, the Raleigh artist landed a spot on former President Barak Obama’s favorite music of 2019 playlist with his hometown anthem ‘Raleighwood’. Les, who was born in London and moved to Raleigh, NC as a child, has taken advantage of the spotlight with a string of singles and videos in 2020. With a style that would fit well on fellow North Carolina native J Cole’s Dreamville label, the best is surely yet to come with Lesthegenius.
