Mykki Blanco Raps in Latin on New Track

'The Initiation' slaps you across the face with its big, fat bass ― then spits Latin in your ear.

When 24-year-old Michael David Quattlebaum Jr. picks up the microphone, he becomes one of the most dangerous female rappers in the game: Mykki Blanco. She hasn't been around too long, but everything she's done so far ― see last year's 'Cosmic Angel: The Illuminati Prince/ss' mixtape ― has been stellar, hot and unpredictable. She's done it again on 'The Initiation,' a new track from her upcoming, highly anticipated 'Betty Rubble: The Initiation' mixtape, out May 21. Over a violent, thundering bass line, she raps vehemently in Latin. Who raps in Latin!?!? Mykki Blanco does.
