Mykki Blanco on His Origins, Queer Rap, & Homophobia in Black Culture

There are black punks, black hippies, black American freaks. So much of rap imagery is black culture ascending out of the ghetto into this very preppy life, rapping about condos and about how much money they have. Jay-Z is rapping about white Louis boat shoes. There are so many black American people that don’t give a fuck about that culture and are not representative of that culture. I’m too twisted to be a role model, but I want people to understand that there are alternative black people in this world and they exist in a major way.
