Queer rapper F. Virtue has just dropped a new EP, Christopher St Cypher, featuring four beautiful tracks tackling issues such as social justice and gun control through groovy, fast hip-hop. The music is dedicated to the victims of the Pulse Orlando shooting and to LGBT and POC communities facing injustice around the world. It's also created in celebration of LGBT Pride.

We're obsessed with all four songs, finding ourselves bopping our heads as F. Virtue spits, "Or is it gun control and the laws in state lines / that influence or allow the action of hate crimes? / Is it religious fervor a fever fed since age 5? / Video games, marijuana, a Marilyn Manson stage dive."
On the final track, "Anita Bryant (Live)," the song in which F. Virtue originally came out of the closet, he speaks truth after truth: "This isn't gay rap, do gay chefs make gay food?"
All proceeds from the new collection will go toward the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association (ILGA).
F. Virtue is certainly an artist to be reckoned with, and we can't wait to see what he does next. Listen to and download Christopher St Cypher here.
