Is he or isn’t he? Cocky da Homo MC dropped 19 tracks from his newest mixtape¬†Joke’s On You (I’m Really Straight) to start off 2014 with some hip-hop that’s both tongue-in-cheek and poignant with hard doses of his reality. MC is clever in his delivery because even with the title intro, he knows how to play us in his favor. Is he gay? Likely, but to even get us to ask that question is a triumph. But then he raps his frustration of being an indie rapper on “Vagine” or when he and his team provoke queer fans and listeners on “Confessions of a Gay Rapper/I Ain’t GLAAD I’m Angry Bitch.”

Joke is available as a free download here and with several tracks clocking in at an average of three minutes, the entire opus runs quick while striking it hot. CeeJai Giovanni and Pro P. are featured on select tracks but it’s MC’s lyrics to focus on here. He comes off as both a strong artist and raconteur, but also plays the joke a little too far when he finishes the mixtape with the final track “Joke’z On You” where he pokes fun of his listeners for investing their time in his release. But perhaps he’s right, because from all sides, he is never not fascinating.

On Sunday, we noticed Cocky da Homo’s Twitter feed was goin’ a little off the rails. Perhaps his most legendary of the tweets was this one where he proclaims gay how he’s not so fond of the term “gay rapper.” And it’s not for the reasons you might immediately think.

Then he goes on to comment on the outdated concept of a hip-hop industry (his words), dissing the people who doubted him and not giving a fuck about other gay rappers. So we reached out to him to see what was up. Clearly he was next to his Twitter app so we figured that would be the quickest way. Turns out, he just needed to do some venting as he admitted to us in a very polite tweet back, but we’re also thinking he’s trying to gear up interest for his latest video “thing.”

da Homo’s recent release “I’m Not Rob Ford,” isn’t so much a video as it is a few selfies (above) pieced together to his latest song. He samples Jay-Z’s “Tom Ford” and declares “I’m a homo” as the song’s hook. His rapid flow decries a whole lot of things from his school age peers to white people to Pride parades, but it’s catchy although at under three minutes, the song comes off a little incomplete in thought. But otherwise, catchy stuff.

Watch/listen to “I’m Not Rob Ford” after the jump.
