Sporting a tight weave and knee-high combat boots Harlem’s transgender rapper Mykki Blanco grabbed the mic at Bambi‘s for her second performance of the night after her opening set for Death Grips at Wrongbar in Toronto, Cananda. The crowd lined up at the afterparty with the self-proclaimed “rookie of the year.”
Blanco’s short set featured songs from her new mixtape Cosmic-Angel: The Illuminati Prince/ss. The highlight was watching Blanco crawl the walls thru a never-ending acappella freestyle that had her clawing the air and sent her eyes rolling to the back of the skull. It all ended with the Brenmar produced single Wavvy. The crowd was hanging on her every word, every twitch of a wrist–they were living.
Blanco’s performance was a hip-hop exorcism: a little grungy, AND unapologetically raw.
