Mykki Blanco “Join My Militia (Nas Gave Me a Perm)”

rap NYC nas mykki blanco join my militia Hip Hop

If you haven’t heard by now, NYC’s newest QUEEN of Hip Hop, Michael David Quattlebaum aka Mykki Blanco, is taking OVAH!!! Most of the posts on Mykki tend to focus on her being a drag queen or cross-dresser, but they’re really missing the point. Blanco is a lyrical genius with pure, primitive beats as raw as any “traditional” rapper in the last 20 years…minus the heterosexual hegemony. Check out her new EP Mykki Blanco & The Mutant Angels, and if you’re in New York City you can see her live Thursday, May 17, at My Chiffon Is Wet at Eastern Bloc, 505 East 6th Street.
