Mykki Blanco Announces Debut EP ‘Betty Rubble: The Initiation’

The Illuminati Prince/ss returns with a co-release on the excellent UNO NYC label.

If you’ve been keeping a close eye on New York you’ll have noticed a bubbling hip-hop scene, so beautifully documented in this ‘Spit Under A Gold Empire’ documentary, and a label that’s becoming a staple for everything forward-thinking - see Arca as an example - in UNO NYC.

There’s plenty else going on, of course. Two Big Apple phenomena combine here in Mykki Blanco’s debut EP announcement, the follow-on from last year’s ‘Cosmic Angel: The Illuminati Prince/ss’ mixtape.

‘Betty Rubble: The Initiation’ features the previously unveiled ‘Feeling Special’ (read Martyn Young’s track review) plus seven new songs, and it’s a co-release on UNI and Blanco’s own label Mykki Music, on 21st May.

He’s also unveiled a new video for ‘Feeling Special’, an exclusive District X MTV production, filmed recently in London.

First thing’s first: The Tracklist.

1. Angry Birds
2. Crisp Clean
3. Feeling Special
4. Bugged Out
5. The Initiation
6. David Blaine Bitches
7. Ace Bougie Chick
