What’s that rustle behind you? It’s probably nothing, right? Just the wind. WRONG. So wrong. So wrong that you’re deader than dead now. Laid low at the hands of CROUCHING TIGER HIDDEN MYKKI. You probably thought to yourself, “Surely I’m safe from any run-ins during this winter holiday. I’ll just relax a little, have a drink, take some time off work…” and BAM. Now you spend your time not exactly thinking, more like floating endlessly in the cosmic void of time. What’s it like getting slain by The Illuminati Prince/ss? Wait, don’t tell me. I want it to be a surprise.
Dummy’s got the cold hard details on just how Queen Mykki took you out if you want or need a refresher. She came out booming one new track, “Booty Bamboo,” featuring some production help from Amnesia Scanner (a first time slammer with the Blanco crew). For a second you were all like, “Cool, yeah, I think I can handle this,” when CTHM kicked it up another notch and your head basically popped right off. There’s a new mixtape and debut album both scheduled for 2014. The mixtape’s a sequel, Cosmic Angel II: Let Big Sister Teach You, and the full length’s called Michael. That’s right, 2014 just got upgraded from “mostly acceptable” to “potential candidate for best year ever.”
And, in case you were unsure whether or not Blanco gave any sum of fucks about anything other than crouching, hiding, and blasting unsuspecting folks right up the sides of their heads, you should scope the note that originally accompanied “Booty Bamboo” on SoundCloud (it’s since been deleted):
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.
