MUSIC VIDEO: Mykki Blanco's 'Feeling Special'

Mykki-Blanco.-Image-courtesy-of-Family American newcomer Mykki Blanco released his video for Feeling Special yesterday, and I'm loving what the American rapper is serving. Although the Californian star is serving hip hop with a shock-rock crossdressing twist, his music is not at all incongruous in my iPod's Hip Hop collection; I see no less authenticity in Blanco as the music of Hip Hop greats like Immortal Technique; the music is honest and raw.

Listening to Blanco feels like i'm listening to 90's Lil Kim with a masculine edge. The new video was filmed on a recent visit to London, and directed by Danny Sangra. One of the things that stands out most in the video is that Blanco has got British singer/rapper Rowdy Superstar in the video; Superstar, who makes a cameo, has been on my radar for many years. I'd definitely love to see a collaboration between the two artists.
