Meet Mykki Blanco, the New (Drag) Queen of Hip Hop

Perhaps you've heard of Mykki Blanco (né Michael David Quattlebaum), the cross-dressing rapper who is by all accounts The Shit right now, in which case, congratulations, you are much cooler than I was until this today. For the rest of you who, like me, are newbies to the ways of Blanco, prepare yourself — this isn't some schtick. Mykki's performances are primal, raw and, best of all, she's a pretty fantastic lyricist and producer.

If anyone likes the idea of the above, but not the sample here, try sissy bounce. Bounce is New Orleans style hip-hop and there's an entire well accepted subset of it called sissy bounce that's performed mainly by queers and drag queens.

Been happening for years here. The video included here doesn't have the best sound quality but I love it because this is our classy high end mall and this in an event called "Sippin in Seersucker" where everyone dresses up and walks about (the comments alone are worth posting it). This is pretty mainstream here. For more examples, look up Katey Red, Big Freedia, Sissy Nobby.
