Mykki Blanco’s ‘She Gutta’ Video Hyperbolizes Los Angeles Gang Culture

Between getting arrested for being a homosexual near a policeman in Portugal and finishing up his next LP, Michael, Mykki Blanco has released the video for “She Gutta,” directed by Jude MC. The video begins as a fake sensationalist “news” program like Cops about gangs in South Central Los Angeles, commingling scary, chaotic images of violence and a gang war-torn city with sex. Of course, within his web of imaginary gangs, Blanco subverts stereotypically masculine gang posturing, implementing his gender-queer aesthetics and scenes of gay sex in a realm of toughness otherwise perceived as hetero.
