Album of the month

Mykki Blanco 'Mykki' (!K7)

You can’t say that Mykki typifies New York rap (even in 2016), but he was at the forefront of the queer hip hop movement. What made it a movement other than homosexual MCs? The use of experimental club producers for beats, a combination that's yielded great results. The fact that this LP is released by !K7 and produced by Woodkid and Jeremiah Meece (of The-Drum) means Mykki’s gained visibility since then, but he hasn't lost any edge either. Its 13 tracks are more versatile in lyrical depth and vocal flow than before and, when added to his trademark intensity, are proof that Mykki's moved to the next level.
