Mykki Blanco reps Chicago with Supreme Cuts

Ready-to-blow NYC rapper Mykki Blanco's Twitter feed has lately been full of references to label hassles and increasingly legitimate-seeming threats to leak the finished eight-song EP—his first "legitimate" release since his Cosmic Angel: The Illuminati Prince/ss mixtape put him on the map last year—that he and his team are sitting on unless someone else gets it out fast. Earlier this afternoon he showed that he's serious by posting a new track, "Bugged Out!!!!," on SoundCloud.

For the unofficial first single from the record that's apparently going to be called Betty Rubble: The Initiation, Blanco's teamed up with in-demand Chicago production duo Supreme Cuts. A former SAIC student (who apparently pissed off some people in Chicago through such "asshole" behavior as "inviting your roommate to join you and your naked friends in front of a fire on a Tuesday"), Blanco does a little repping for the city on the track, injecting one of the pair's typically spaced-out beats with a heavy dose of dancehall-inspired aggression. Stream or download it after the jump.
