It's not every rapper who's honored with a bobblehead likeness. Then again, Blowfly (aka Clarence Reid) is not just any rapper. Performing in a cape, mask and yards of gold lamé, he is known as a triple-X-rated funk legend. Following a career as a soul and R&B recording artist, Reid donned his alter ego and spent four decades making the kind of musical sex parodies that brought a lawsuit from ASCAP and inspired the likes of Snoop Dogg/Lion and Wu Tang Clan. Don't believe it? His life is documented in the film, The Weird World of Blowfly
. Valentine's Day marked Reid's 75th birthday — to celebrate, he's on a tour that brings him to The Mothlight on Friday, Feb. 28, at 9 p.m. Foul Mouth Jerk shares the bill. $10/$12. themothlight.com
