Peppermint & Cazwell Collaborate On New Music

Peppermint and Cazwell announce a joint EP, and debut the music video for trans anthem, ‘Blend’…
 
RuPaul’s Drag Race season 9 breakout star Peppermint and openly gay rapper Cazwell have announced that they have collaborated on a new EP called Blend.
 
“We’ve practically been married to each other for years,” Peppermint told Billboard. “We’ve worked and performed together since 2000. We also started a successful hip-hop class party in NYC at the Ritz and he was featured in my first music video.”
 
Cazwell added that the two hadn’t had an opportunity to do a full project together: “We wanted to do an EP that pulled from our club influences of house, pop and rap.”
 
In anticipation for the EP, the pair have released a music video for its title track, “Blend,” which Cazwell describes as an anthem for the transgender community.
 
“We wanted all of the songs to be very trans-positive and tell a story of what it is like being a trans woman in 2018,” Cazwell said. The title track “was written from the state of mind of making a positive trans anthem. When you are a woman and especially a trans woman you are under a lot of pressure to blend in society so that no one calls you out for being trans. I wanted to write a song that proved the importance of not needing to blend into society to be happy with yourself.”
 
The Blend EP will be available on Friday, March 9th.
