The past decade has seen a veritiable proliferation of rap music made by LGBTs of all shapes, colors, and sizes. While artists like Mykki Blanco, Cakes Da Killa, Big Freedia, and Le1f have gained indie music cred, plenty of other underground artists continue to release music that by any metric is just as good as the hip hop played on the radio. These rappers, unfortunately, are still struggling for coverage and attention while lesser talents dominate the conversation.
Enter Mister Wallace, a Chicago-based rapper who's latest video, "It Girl," could be launching him into the mainstream.
Wallace switches back and forth between butch and femme looks while simultaneously serving speedy bars that straight rappers should envy.
"Rap has become stagnate. We've heard from the same voices. Now we are hearing a new perspective. We are now hearing the perspective of intersection. I see this 'trend' as a rebirth of rap. We are the future legends of the genre," said Wallace in an interview with OUT.
"I want to be in EVERY MAGAZINE," he added. "I am ready for my cover, Ms. Wintour."
