Mykki Blanco “Feeling Special”

21 Feb 2013 — Andrew Wagner

Yesterday saw Mykki Blanco leak "Feeling Special", giving us the first taste of Blanco’s forthcoming Betty Rubble: The Initiation EP. The track is Blanco’s most minimal, with a laid-back feel that’s in stark contrast with Blanco’s other, more upfront and aggressive songs. But that doesn’t mean "Feeling Special" is any less dark: Blanco raps 'Follow, follow, follow / follow me down that rabbit hole' as though in a trance, and you can’t help but feel like you’re getting deeper and deeper into Blanco’s twisted underworld. Even so, "Feeling Special" feels like just a teaser of the dark places Blanco is slowly leading us towards, and I, for one, am looking forward to seeing where we go next.

Stream "Feeling Special" below, and look for the Betty Rubble: The Initiation EP later this year.
