Le1f's debut album 'Riot Boi' lands on November 13 through XL Recordings and Terrible Records.

A number of top producers have collaborated with the New York-based rapper for the full length, including Sophie, Balam Acab, Dev Hynes, Evian Christ and Lunice.

The latter two worked together on 'Umami/Water' which Complex unveiled this week.

Speaking about the politcally charged track, Le1f revealed: "Feeling like I wasn't educated and sensitive enough to trans issues, I wanted to correct that for myself, so I delved a bit more into educating myself on the struggle and a lot of the issues that are happening in the trans community.

"I felt that I needed to do that because so many of my favorite people are trans, particularly Juliana Huxtable. .. We've been friends for a really long time, so to see her transition into the most amazing human being, I just wanted to make a song that would make her the most proud, and would be helpful for the trans community at large but also my friends who are trans."
