Tommy Genesis unveils artwork and release date of self-titled debut album

Canadian rapper Tommy Genesis has unveiled the artwork for her highly-anticipated debut album.

The self-titled record is due for release on 9 November, and will feature rap-bops such as Lucky, Tommy, 100 Bad and Daddy.

In a statement, Tommy said: “My album is self-titled Tommy Genesis because it has elements from both the demon & angel side of me. Daddy exists in the demon realm, aka Tommy realm, but it’s still very upbeat. Hope you love.”

Take a look at the incredible artwork below:

The self-described fetish rapper appeared in the October issue of Gay Times and discussed homophobia in hip-hop, being in control of her artistry, and how she doesn’t conform to gender norms.

She told us: “The minute you say you’re LGBTQ, they’ll put you in a box. I just think that the way media has perceived our community, outside of our community, is just very stereotypical. It happens everywhere.

“They’re so ready to put us in this one specific stereotype, and the reality is, is that we’re diverse and we’re different types of people.”

Tommy added: “Gender for the media is very black and white. You’re either masculine or feminine. You’re either happy or you’re a cunt. You either care or you don’t. No, actually, how I identify is masculine and feminine.

“I’m not confused about my gender and I’m not confused about my identity. People can’t understand that.”
