Mykki Blanco just dropped this characteristically shape-shifting, Danny Sangra-directed video for "Haze.Boogie.Life," a track from the artist's upcoming mixtape, Cosmic Angel: The Illuminati Prince/ss, which is out November 7th. The cut hits deep with bass drops courtesy of producers Sinden and MATRiXXMAN as Blanco moves in what feels like the bodily equivalent of a record being scratched. The costumes, and there are many of them, locate Blanco at pretty much every point along the gender continuum, while the raps point to "realness" as something that goes deeper than clothes: It's a war out here. The real versus the gimmicks. They all want to be stars but their hearts aint in it.
