“I’m Solange in the elevator, watch your ass,” raps Mykki Blanco in his latest Jeremiah Meece-produced single, “SCALES,” delivering the first full taste of new music since teasing listeners on Facebook a while back.
The C-ORE emcee has been quietly sitting on this verse for a minute, having originally included a Katie Got Bandz assisted-track, “Solange in the Elevator,” on the tracklist for his full-length mixtape Gay Dog Food. “The song is just basically a bad girl anthem about letting people who think they can manipulate you know that they can’t,” said Blanco in our 2014 Papermag interview.
