Help Keep Blowfly From Going Homeless!

Clarence Reid and his alter ego Blowfly have released hundreds of songs and albums since starting a recording and songwriting career in Miami in the early '60s.

From straight ahead pop hits like Betty Wright's "Cleanup Woman," to groundbreaking classics like "Rapp Dirty," he's been cited as an influence by the likes of The RZA and Snoop Dogg, both of whom grew up listening to his dirty party records.

And now, he needs the world's help to raise $11,000 and save his house from reposession by the County tax appraiser. Here's what Blowfly and his manager/bandmate Tom Bowker had to say about the situation and their Indiegogo campaign to crowdfund his way out of it.

KEEP MIAMI NEW TIMES FREE... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
