Mykki Blanco has big plans for next year, including debut album Michael and a mixtape to be called Cosmic Angel II: Let Big Sister Teach You. But first, the Betty Rubble: The Initiation rapper is ending 2013 with a bang. She’ll be performing at New York’s Gramercy Theater on New Year’s Eve, joined by DJ Rashad, Ian Isiah, and more — show and ticket information is here. And she has shared a fittingly festive new track titled “Booty Bamboo,” which puts Blanco’s animated, peak-Weezy flow over booming, TNGHT-like production (is there a better phrase yet for “trap-rave”) courtesy of Amnesia Scanner. Check that out below, along with Mykki’s powerful note accompanying the song on SoundCloud.
Will hip hop ever accept me? Who gives a fuck. Will the gay community turn their back on me if I stop dressing in drag? Who gives a fuck. Will I get signed? Who gives a fuck. I did a world tour off the strength of soundcloud singles, a lo-fi mixtape and my first EP. I was out there, I saw the power of music and saw the power of love and now I just want to develop my music and have fun. People who fuck with Mykki Blanco fuck with Mykki Blanco no image or politics needed.
Light a blunt with your friends and listen to my new track Booty Bamboo. I feel free, I hope you do to.
