Here, a reason to wish for even more Mykki Blanco in the new year: this new song called “Booty Bamboo,” produced by Amnesia Scanner (and seems to be pronounced “Booty Bahm-bo”). A tease for the mixtape and LP she has planned for 2014, it’s grinding and pretty tough, but still with all the green tea toking and fucking up the rug dance vibes, too. About it — and also her year, more generally — she writes:
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.
Mykii Blanco will ring in the new year onstage at Gramercy Theatre in New York alongside Ian Isiah, Jungle Pussy, DJ Rashad, La’fem Ladosha, DJ Larry B, T.E.A.M.S, Princess Nokia and Michael Magnan. Tickets are available here.
