WHO IS SHE?

 

Mister Wallace, born Erik Lamar Wallace II, is an American performance artist, rapper, DJ, Producer, curator, and COOL MOM of artist collective FUTUREHOOD. Their debut project, The FAGGOT EP, received critical acclaim in the blogsphere as their visuals for 'IT GIRL' reached mainstream publications such as Oxygen.com and Vibe.com. Wallace is a champion of the QTPOC experience and has worked with SLAY TV on original content such as the official music video for 'WHOREMOAN' and their reprising role as Curtis on OTV original productions: Nupita Obama Creates Vogua, Hairstory, and GOOD ENOUGH where Wallace plays a GNC artist. The 2018 follow up to the FAGGOT EP, 'COOL MOM', debuted at RED BULL MUSIC FESTIVAL  presents: FUTUREHOOD & FRIENDS, a showcase of the Chicago's best underground queer hip-hop acts. Mister Wallace can be found spinning with House music legends in underground queer parties in their native Chicago and across the globe as well as performing live on tour this spring with HELLTRAP NIGHTMARE as their special musical guest. 


Chicago rapper Mister Wallace must be seen to be believed

"Erik Wallace, who performs as Mister Wallace, must be seen to be believed. His live shows are undoubtedly some of the best in all of the city, incorporating a mixture of dance, performance art and one-of-a-kind theatrics that can be attributed only to the artist.


It’s funny to think then that creating music wasn’t always part of his plan." - Britt Julious September 17, 2018  via The Chicago Tribune

COOL MOM

"Cool Mom, {December 2016}, is both a continuation of and departure from this sound – Wallace’s lyrics are as sharp as ever, but they move away from the more brash and upfront style of their earlier releases towards something more edifying and vitalising."  - DAZED & CONFUSED, Selim Bulut "

FAggot EP

MISTER WALLACE DEBUT EP

 "The music is forceful and Wallace raps with an urgency that lends his songs a powerful and driving rhythm. Its beats are both experimental and old-school, which makes for a sound that is undeniably “now” while also managing to make stylish nods to the past." - Cody Gohl  via NewNowNext

Mister Wallace’s “It Girl” Video Will Invigorate Your Soul

“’It Girl’ kept me alive at a time when lovers and employers felt my blackness and my queerness had gone too far from what’s acceptable to mainstream society.”
