Born: Yeshe Perl
How Yeshe Perl became Mickey Avalon: when his breakout single, “Jane Fonda,” leased his life a second act after a childhood and early adulthood addled with drug addiction
Mickey’s unique genre: “glam rap,” as coined by LA Weekly
What that means: outlandish, highly personal lyrics that reflect his experiences in the underbelly of Los Angeles; owning more tattoos than shirts
His last album: 2012’s Loaded
Its lead track: “Girlfriend,” in which Mickey’s brash voice spits a refrain about an adolescent relationship’s ultimate question—”Who likes who more?”
Dirt Nasty featuring Andre Legacy — "Hydrocodone"
Warning: contains language, sexual situations, and illicit drug abuse
By day, he’s: Simon Rex, the comedian, former MTV DJ, and actor seen in the Scary Movie series and on TV’s Jack and Jill and What I Like About You
And at night, he turns into: Dirt Nasty, the dirty, nasty rapper who’s built a viral following with songs that wallow in silliness and vulgarity
Cool places you’ve seen Rex in his Dirt Nasty guise: collaborating with Mickey Avalon, in LMFAO’s video for “Sexy and I Know It,” Ke$ha’s video for “Tik Tok,” and on Paris Hilton’s My New BFF
What to expect at his live show: interesting ways to learn about the birds and the bees, a year’s supply of euphemisms, and unadulterated adult fun
