Later this month, Mykki Blanco will release Gay Dog Food. The first in a campaign of releases leading up to the rapper's debut album Michael's arrival next year, the project is set to feature a wide range of styles and influence—including punk, noise, experimental, industrial and Riot Grrl—as well as a diverse supporting cast. There is a spoken word track from Kathleen Hanna, a Katie Got Bandz collab called "Solange in the Elevator" (eh hmm) and this: "Moshin' in the Front," a grinding, metallic track featuring Cities Aviv.
In a statement, Blanco explains that he's begun shrugging off labels in favor of exciting content:
"you can choose to call me a gay rapper, you can choose to not even call me a rapper if you want to, it doesn't matter, i'm a punk, a creative punk and i'm going to continue to create and entertain without boundaries. Gay Dog Food is just the start of where I hope to go creatively and commercially, this moment now is really the beginning."
Gay Dog Food is out October 28th on Uno NYC.
