I had the pleasure of interviewing the charasmatic Imani The Misfit, the first openly bisexual rapper on Nikki True Live. We speak on his music, his erotic masturbation films and his challenges as an openly bisexual male rapper in hip-hop, as well as the many misconceptions and stigmas surrounding male bisexuality.
It was one of my most interesting yet informative interviews to date. If you missed it click play and get tuned in and turned on.
Imani the Misfit is an American rapper, record producer, singer- songwriter, keyboardist, drummer, fashion designer, actor and x-rated model from Maryland. Imani has been featured on Washington City Paper, Examiner.com, Windy City Times, Adult Video Network (AVN), Bi-Social Network, Diversity Rules Magazine, Connextions Magazine and many other publications as well as over 40 different internet radio stations as Maryland’s first openly bisexual male rapper.Imani built a reputation for himself through the internet as an arrogant, intelligent, yet comedian-like character by promoting his music and pornography while taunting his peers in religious and social debates. It is his alternative and sometimes extreme views of the world that has helped to establish his buzz. His most recent and controversial stunts include the release of two erotic short films in 2012, entitled “Masturbation Is Healthy 4.0″ and “Masturbation Is Healthy 5.0″.
In the past he shocked fans with his confessions of being bisexual, and the release of podcasts with titles like “Men Who Suck Dick Are Hot”, (which gained 100,000 views on YouTube before being banned) and podcasts with anti-religious titles “Fuck The Bible” and “Fuck God”, which have also been banned from YouTube. Additionally, in his hometown of the Washington DC area, he went on a promotional campaign in which he stood at Metro Stations and shopping malls wearing wigs and holding up a “MISFIT” sign, while selling his CD’s. On Martin Luther King Day of 2011, he released an essay entitled “Martin Luther King Was A Misfit”, which diagnosed the character of MLK and described the civil rights leader as a rebel. On Christmas of 2010, he released the music video for “Promotion Team” in which he is shown dancing half naked at the Arlington Cemetery Metro Station and also doing splits and cartwheels in front of the US Capitol. Although his reputation has gotten him banned from countless websites and blackballed from certain areas of the hip-hop industry, his persona has established a notoriety and lasting impression in the minds of all who come in contact with him.minds of all who come in contact with him
