Lady Leshurr says she doesn’t “feel the need” to swear in her songs

This week’s NME cover star explains why she doesn’t use bad language on her tracks

Lady Leshurr has revealed why she doesn’t use bad language in her songs.

The grime star is interviewed for the cover of this week’s NME, which will be available nationwide from tomorrow, with her interview available digitally the same day (August 26).

In her interview, Leshurr explains that she sees herself as a role model and is happy that parents play her music to young children.


Leshurr said her lack of swearing is despite getting into music via Eminem. She said: “I don’t feel the need to swear. I grew up on one of the most foul-mouthed rappers in the world, but it’s all about mentality and upbringing. My mum brought me up really good, and I knew my rights from my wrongs.”

Leshurr iis set to release her debut album ‘Queen Of The Scene’ early in 2017. She added: “Parents say that their kids listen to me, and that makes me feel good. I set out to be a role model.”

The rapper says she feels apart from the grime scene, despite Wiley guesting on her new single ‘Where Are You Now’. She said: “I don’t have anybody. It’s really sad, but I don’t have a circle. I don’t have any industry friends. I don’t have anyone, literally.”
