[WASHED-UP WHITE RAP] Yeshe Perl, aka rapper Mickey Avalon, had a childhood not unlike that of Anthony Kiedis: They both grew up as scrappy youngsters in Hollywood with fathers who introduced them to drugs, memories of which made up the bulk of their early lyrical material. Anthony Kiedis went on to win seven Grammies and sell more than 80 million records worldwide with the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Avalon went on to write more about his childhood—one of booze, prostitution, his dick, my dick and your dick. And yet, seven years later, his devotees still hanker for more, just like the imagined lusty vixens who make up the subject matter of his rhymes. “I wanna touch you/I wanna taste you/I wanna take you/Invade you/Degrade you,” Mickey cantillates in the track “Fuckin’ ’Em All.” Simple, sleazy, straightforward: just what his fan legions are looking for when he shows up on our doorstep time and time again.
