There is nothing more innovative, daring and entertaining than a drag queen — in fact, the only artists who come close to adopting the flair, personas and monikers of drag artists are rappers. Just like a drag queen, when a rapper chooses a name, it’s a special moment in their career. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that drag queens and rappers have names with similar flair. Check out our list of rappers whose names ring like a fearless drag queen — and let’s hope no one’s masculinity gets offended! Being a compared to a drag is truly a compliment — and that is, seriously, no shade.
1. Juicy J
What more do we have to say? This name screams drag queen who can lip synch for her life to Rihanna’s “Sex With Me.” Keep it juicy!
There is nothing wrong with being a fabulous, even if you spell it differently. We are certain there is a drag queen, somewhere on the globe, with this name — grammatically correct, of course.
3. French Montana
Any name that ends in a vowel treads drag queen territory, but plugging French to the beginning adds some extra fabulosity. Very Real Housewives of Morocco!
4. Lupe Fiasco
Mr. Fiasco may not know there was a famous Cuban singer, who is also an LGBT icon, called La Lupe. With that first name and the fever of the last name, Lupe Fiasco sounds like a drag queen who bring all of the high-octane drama.
5. Silkk The Shocker
Yaaaas, shock the silk panties off! Shock, silk and an extra ‘k’ to spell “silkk” — legendary!
6. Sugar Tongue Slim
Do we really have to explain?
Again, we guarantee you there is a drag queen somewhere on the planet with this name. Actually, slap some lip gloss on Tyga, a proper wig and contour — he could battle with the best of them!
8. Tum Tum
We don’t know much about the history of this rapper, but Tum Tum is a name that stands out as drag queen friendly. Maybe he has a new career ahead?
Papoose, whose real name is Shamele Mackie, is Remy Ma’s husband and the couple is adored on Love & Hip-Hop: New York. This name, which sounds too much like platypus, might be a better fit for a flawless drag queen. Imagine RuPaul saying, “Miss Papoose, sashay you stay…”
10. Vanilla Ice
Yaaaaas, Miss Vanilla Ice would be a white-hot vixen who lipsynchs to a musical theater version of “Ice Ice Baby.” Tens across the board!
11. Flo Rida
A perfect name for a drag queen. She flows, she rides with the wind and she slays all her competition!
