Brandishing whip-smart, radical queer lyrics, a honey wig and fabulous pedicure, Mykki Blanco, the alter ego of Michael David Quattlebaum Jr., has released “Wavvy” a new video and single. In Elle, which dubbed Mykki “hip-hop’s new queen” on its culture blog, Quattlebaum refutes the term “gay rapper,” but rather, “a mixture of riot grrrl and ghetto fabulousness.”
Check out Mykki’s work here and the video below.
The 20-year-old self described bi-girl has dropped “Fierce,” a popping, club-hop beat that doubles as a loving nod to “Paris is Burning,” as part of “Fantasea,” her new downloadable 19-track mixtape. Check out the video below.
