Despite being a truly modern entity, there's something very old school punk rock about up-and-coming transvestite rapper Mykki Blanco. Maybe it's the way she evokes the gritty spirit of 1970s New York, her jerky Iggy Pop-like movements or the way she openly embraces what others might write off as debauched and ugly. (Remember the video we posted a couple months back in which a naked Blanco lies covered only by octopus tentacles?) No matter what you put it to, Mykki Blanco wouldn't seem far out of place on a bill with The Stooges or Johnny Thunders.
Here's her newest video release for "My Head Is a Stone." Like it or not, I think we can all agree that Mykki Blanco is doing something very very different.
