Mykki Blanco has recently joined forces with producer, vocalist and icon Kiddy Smile to release a remixed version of “That’s Folks (ft. Bug Freedia). The original track, aided by New Orleans bounce music specialist Big Freedia, came from Mykki’s acclaimed mini album, Broken Hearts & Beauty Sleep, that released to the world on June 18th via Transgressive Records. The album can be pre-ordered in a physical format starting November 19th here.
Mykki Blanco has been around for more than a decade now, and has since blossomed into a hip-hop star, pushing forward as a leader in queer-rap culture while coming to terms with their own self-identity. A desire to bring more variety into the sub-genre, and the expert use of their own magical creativity is what ultimately lead to the creation of Broken Hearts & Beauty Sleep. Currently, Mykki is on a European tour spanning through many dates in November, which remaining tickets and dates can be found and purchased here.
“For me, I am one of those artists who many would say has taken the longer road to get to where I am now, but it’s that journey which has been the reward because the journey really has been my life; the career has just been the outer shell to the deeper things that I’ve experienced, and I can only be here now because of this journey.”
