MUSIC. “The BEST Hip Hop Song By An LGBT Artist This Year!”

I stumbled upon the track ‘#blackblood’ by B. Slade featuring Omega Mythologist on one of my favorite sites Cypher Avenue. Contributor Ockydub praised the track as…

“The BEST Hip Hop Song By an LGBT Artist This Year!” and “THIS TRACK GOES HARD!”
Also “If Black Lives Matter was established by Lesbian women and Gay Black men, this song needs to be shared and promoted in their circles being that an openly gay ex-super star gospel singer wrote, produced and provided vocals for #BLACKBLOOD. LGBT hip hop heads need to acknowledge this is the pinnacle of LGBT hip hop for 2016. This is perfection. This is the bar that needs to be reached”.

So after all that I had to have a listen and I’ll say I was NOT disappointed. Take a listen and Enjoy!

I also will also recommend reading Ockydub original Cypher Avenue post as he excited and thoughts of the song, subject, LGBT issues, LGBT hip hop are stellar.

Where was I in 2012?! How did I miss this jam. Queer Hip Hop duo THEESatisfaction dropped the melodic jam ‘QueenS’ 3 years ago and I can’t stop listening to it. If I’d never heard it there’s probably some others, so better late than never. Oh, and the video is cute as hell too! Enjoy!
