This past weekend I was lucky enough to catch Mykki Blanco live for the second time in Baltimore this year, as his Initiation Tour is coming to a close on what seemed to be an eternal string of shows. As always, and something that's stood true since I first saw him play in Boston in the summer of 2012, Mykki gave a great fucking show. He kept the crowd engaged from the jump and played the best shit from his catalog (except "NaS Gave Me a Perm" which I was dying to hear). "Wavvy", "Feeling Special", "Bugged Out" and "HazeBoogie" were all jamming and the production from the unreleased material he played was crazy. Seriously, in hip-hop, we really have to start championing these artists that are putting in overtime on creating QUALITY performances; with Saturday being my third time witnessing Blanco live, every time has gotten more interesting and entertaining. When he's on the stage, he leaves Earth for a bit and as audience members, myself and others, have taken that trip with him—you can't help but to. The green stage-lighting was perfect for his mutant persona, too. His shit just makes sense, and even though it's supposed to, it happens so infrequently. Yeah, I'm probably rambling but I can't help but to get excited when a rap show in 2013 doesn't include pointless moshing from dudes who've never been in the pit, 39 people on stage being cool and the rapper standing in one spot his entire performance before bouncing up and down because he couldn't think of anything else to do. Whew. Anyway, in the midst of enjoying the show, I snapped some photos of Mykki, DJ Larry B, T.E.A.M.S. and TT The Artist (from True Laurels Volume 1).
