WIN FREE TICKETS: Myyki Blanco, Jamaican Queens AND James Linck @ The Majestic Cafe

Mykki Blanco is coming to Detroit Tuesday, April 23, and she has recruited two of our favorite local acts The Jamaican Queens and James Linck to open up the show. This is one of the best lineups that I have seen in a long time. All three of these artists could carry a crowd on their own, but together this promises to be one unstoppable show.
If you don’t know who Mykki Blanco is, you are in for a treat. She is the female alter ego of Michael David Quattlebaum, Jr., a young African American man who got his start in NYC. Mykki frames herself as the monster who is taking over hip hop. She raps like the big boys, but also talks about f**king other boys, something that until now was never embraced by the hip hop community. Nothing about her or her show is ordinary.

The same can be said about The Jamaican Queens. I have never been able to classify the genre that they fit into. They have a sound that is unique and if you haven’t noticed lately, it is taking them places. They have been on tour for the last few months and after this show will be back out on the road with no other local performances in the foreseeable future. Their new Album, Wormfood, was released recently and you can order your own copy here. If you haven’t heard Ryan Spencer sing, I implore you to give it a listen. He has a unique voice.

Speaking of unique voices, James Linck has one of the most unique and beautiful voices that I have ever heard. The first time I heard him sing I was hooked. I have never looked forward to a record release more than I look forward to his album coming out. Hurry up James!

This show is $10 in advance and $12 at the door, or you can enter to win tickets courtesy of Hip in Detroit and The Magic Stick. We are giving away two sets of tickets for this event and we would love to give them to you. To enter, just email your full name with the Subject headline Mykki Blanco to  We will email the winner early on Tuesday morning so make sure you include your name so we know who we are emailing. The show starts at 9 p.m. and will be in The Majestic Cafe, located at 4120 Woodward Ave.
