Mykki Blanco has been getting an outrageous amount of attention in the underground as of late, causing me to almost entirely steer clear. I usually try to wait out the hype and let it settle for artists like that; but the homie Dre (of Gluttony Is The New Black) mentioned being pumped for Cosmic Angel: The Illuminati Prince/ss, Blanco's mixtape that just dropped late last night, and Dre knows a good party jam better than almost anyone I know. Honestly the rap is something I could take or leave; which is not to take away from Blanco's ability, but just to say that the material isn't fully relatable for me. The production across the tape, however, is just extraordinary. Blanco goes hard over beats from Brenmar, Gobby, Flosstradamus & Gatekeeper amongst others. Hard synths squawk from beneath airy percussion that all ties neatly together, despite such a varietous list of producers, making the mixtape flow beautifully.
