"I'm bossed up, look at me I'm flossed up," raps New York-based Quay Dash on her cocky SOPHIE-produced single, "Bossed Up." The track appears on the artist's rereleased Transphobic EP, which originally dropped in 2016, but got a second push today through London's underground label, Perth Records—Dash's new home after years of being independent.
Though "Bossed Up," which opens Transphobic, is a standout, Dash's five-track breakout is packed tight with winners. On "Queen of NY," she asserts her indisputable royalty above slick '90s-leaning production, where "Squared Toe Leather Boot" delivers a more ominous, menacing sound. "I Need a Bag" is a new addition to Transphobic, having originally appeared on Dash's Satan's Angel mixtape, and closer, "Decline Him," is the ultimate FU: "I'm the best at what I do," she says, shutting down all the "whiners."
Dash's Transphobic EP was remastered by Bloodvessel, Perth and Yegua, and marks a major milestone in her young, burgeoning career. Beyond today's release through Perth Records, the Bronx emcee has booked several performances in Europe as part of a solo tour. Her first stop will be on July 15 at London's ICA, alongisde Maria Forqué, Yequa and Celestial Trax.
