Bronx Rapper Quay Dash Drops Her First EP 'Transphobic'

"Each song represents a different experience."

Up until now, Bronx rapper Quay Dash has only dropped a handful of singles — but those singles were so impressive we named her one of our 10 Female Rappers To Pay Attention To. Just this weekend, Ms. Dash finally dropped a much-anticipated full-length EP. The new collection of songs, titled Transphobic, deal with the up-and-coming superstar's experiences as a transgender woman in these scary political times.

"The EP is about the things that I go through daily in this transphobic world," Quay told us. "I wrote the songs when I was going through a challenging period of my life where there is lots of hatred towards black transgender women in America."

Mixing moody old school hip hop beats with more contemporary avant-garde and dark rap instrumentation, the 5-track extended play shows off Quay's superior spitting skills over a handful of different styles.

"I wanted to set a different mood for each song," she added. "Each song represents a different experience."

Quay Dash will also be joining electroclash legend Peaches on her current North American tour. Their first show together will be in Winnipeg, Manitoba on September 23rd.
