Best New Tracks-Mykki Blanco "The Initiation"

5/20/13

What do you call a gay black man from North Carolina posing as a female MC from New York? Mykki Blanco, of course. And what do you call the quasi title-track of Blanco's forthcoming mixtape, Betty Rubble: The Initiation? You call Mykki Blanco's "The Initiation" a best new tracks, naturally.

While everything about Mykki Blanco may scream GIMMICK!?!?!!?, right down to the hyping from Azeilia Banks (zing), this dude/bitch can flow. "The Initiation" is as out-of-left-field as you can get. The beat is an uneasy combination of off-rhythm hi-hats, bunker-style alarms, and electronic pulses. The lyrics are primarily in Latin.

We think it's mesmerizing.
