Mykki Blanco is about to blow up. With profiles in The New York Times, Gawker, Pitchfork, Interview, and more, the wig-wearing female persona of Harlem rapper Michael David Quattlebaum Jr., has become an undeniable hip-hop wild card.

That may be true, but the year's not over yet, and "Wavvy" deserves to be heard by as many people as possible.
