Nicki Minaj x ‘Club 79’ in Paris
A comic I made for Westpride last spring.
"Alternative R&B must die" FKA Twigs speaks out on racism in the music industry through genre-specifying:
"When I first released music and no one knew what I looked like, I would read comments like: ‘I’ve never heard anything like this before, it’s not in a genre,’” she continued. “And then my picture came out six months later, now she’s an R&B singer. I share certain sonic threads with classical music; my song “Preface” is like a hymn. So let’s talk about that. If I was white and blonde and said I went to church all the time, you’d be talking about the ‘choral aspect’. But you’re not talking about that because I’m a mixed-race girl from south London."
