Khalif Diouf, better known by his stage name Le1f, made his network television debut Thursday on the Late Show, marking the first time an openly gay rapper has performed on a network late-night show.

Last week, Le1f, who is based in New York, released Hey, his latest studio album.

“Our next guest is a New York rapper and producer, and he's making his network television debut with us right here tonight,” Late Night host David Letterman said by way of introducing Le1f. “So, that's great. Thank you very much for that. His new EP is titled Hey or Hey! Please welcome Le1f.” (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)

Le1f performed his 2012 single Wut. (Official video can be seen on YouTube.)

With lyrics such as “He wanna suckle on my muscle” and “He wanna burst my bubble and see what's up in my jungle,” Wut makes clear Le1f's sexual orientation.

“thank you so much to @Letterman for inviting me to perform on his stage as a musician and not as a spectacle,” Le1f tweeted. “that's a major.”
