Mykki Blanco Gets ‘Wavvy’ in New Video
Transgender rapper Mykki Blanco's new video will blow your mind, bro.
This is the video for Mykki Blanco’s latest song “Wavvy.” The clip features a man rapping in drag spitting lines like “I pimp slap you bitch niggas with my limp wrist, bro.” We’re pretty sure Max B never thought the term he coined would eventually become a song title for the Web’s latest LGBT rap sensation but then again Max B probably never thought he’d be sentenced to 75 years in prison, but we digress.
“Mykki Blanco” is the female-identifying alter ego of 25-year-old Michael David Quattlebaum Jr., his take on a teenage female rapper. If you thought you knew about all things rap and haven’t heard of her it’s probably because you stay abreast of hip-hop happenings by reading sites like HipHopDX and NahRight and not the New York Times, Elle, or Interview — all of which have featured her. Today Gawker debuted the video for Blanco”Wavvy” and it’s slick, well-produced and provocative. The fashion world and Internets will eat it up but what will rap fans think? What do you think? Check out the young Blanco in all her transgendered glory and weigh in the comments section.
