Doing for booty-fiend club jams what Frank Ocean does for r&b bromance, Harlem producer/rapper Le1f (see Das Racist's "Combination Pizza Hut And Taco Bell") comes on like a drag-ball Missy Elliot on this single from his free Dark York mixtape. Name-checking Missy's "Hit 'Em Wit Da Hee" over slo-mo horn splats and bass drops, he shifts between horny snap-queen ("I need my oreos double-stuffed") and double-speed battle-rhymer, claiming the slur "light in his loafers" as a gay pride declaration likes it’s no big deal at all, which makes it even more of one.

    “Madame George”

    Van Morrison | 1968

    One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
