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.
