Crunk's not dead


I wonder if Lil Jon knows about Crunks not Dead, a small indie label out of the Northwest. It isn't a traditional rap imprint, however, but an outlet for queer-identified electro and hip-hop artists. Talk about subversion!

One of its artists is Nicky Click, a performer from Durham, N.C. who sings and raps over her booty-bass and electronic beats. Her new album is I'm On My Cell Phone. I saw Nicky Click during Mondo Homo at the Drunken Unicorn last summer. As she performed, home movies were projected on a screen behind her. The flicks mostly consisted of her looking glamorous, sashaying around and having a pajama party with her friends. It was interesting and kinda weird, sort of like watching Harmony Korine's cult classic Gummo. Admittedly, that may not be the best comparison, depending on your feelings about that film ...

But hey, make your own opinion. Here's a video of Nicky Click's "Rhea." You can visit her website here, and her MySpace page here.
