Leon Wilkie has already made a name for himself as the VFiles art director, but now he is make moves to venture into the world of music. First up is “Pay Me Up Front,” the lead single from his upcoming EP, Speak of the Devil. With the help of mega-duo Fame School, Wilkie has created a perfect turn up track the features an addicting yet simplistic beat and lyrics that speak to his hustle—like when he raps, Pay me up front, I need my money now.
"My first single 'Pay Me Up Front' off the EP, Speak of the Devil, is a brutally honest nod to the hustle in all of us,” Wilkie explained in an email to The FADER. “The song is inspired by a lifestyle I find myself surrounded by at all times and have learned to love and respect."
