DOWNLOAD: Mykki Blanco - Wavvy
"Wavvy" starts with a four-bar introduction that signals it's about to get real. Over an ominous balafon loop, a deep voice exclaims "I'm the motherfucking rookie of the year" and the aggressive bravado never lets up. Yep, it's the work of performance artist, poet and drag-queen MC Mykki Blanco. With a touch of mania, Blanco comes at anyone who doubts her flow, threatening to pimp-slap homophobic naysayers with a limp wrist. Produced by Brenmar, the bass-heavy track is a delicious serving of gender-bending magic and a proper introduction to Blanco, who has multiple projects coming up. The next is Mykki Blanco & The Mutant Angels – an EP that explores Blanco's punk roots. It drops May 15 on UNO.
