5 Gay Rappers Who Are “Better Than Everybody”

2. Mykki Blanco

mykki-blanco

Who She Is: Mykki Blanco was described by the Village Voice as a “gender ninja.” This drag queen rapper is not pumping out songs about heels and wigs (although she does look great in them) and is instead pushing buttons with deeply dark and menacing lyrics. Perhaps closer to performance artist than rapper (seriously, her shows are spookily intense) Mykki might be the most avant-garde of the gay-rap bunch (although, as she often explains, she has mixed feelings about being grouped in with other gay rappers).

What She’s Up to Now: Mykki was, just this weekend, the surprise hit of the Afropunk festival in Brooklyn after releasing her near-perfect mixtape Betty Rubble: The Initiation EP.

Choice Lyric: “What the fuck I go to prove to a room full of dudes / who ain’t listening to my words cause they staring at my shoes?”

      Dig Cakes Da Killa’s flow, but it’s the same shit as queercore: focus on just sexuality exclusively and you bore the fucking shit out of me by minute three. By minute four, I’m hiding behind a couch in utter embarrassment for you.

      JbDubs is terrible. He better stick to ballet (which he’s excellent in). I really like the other four, and that’s coming from a guy who normally dislike rap music.

      This was a joke right? You can’t be serious, you picked these five just because they’re gay admit it…..Look stick to things you know about because when it comes to hip hop you have no clue as to what the hell you’re talking about, these were the wackest unskilled so called rappers I’ve ever heard, the only difference between them and any other wack rapper is that they’re gay. These five wick wack rappers are even more proof hip hop is dead.
