MICKEY BOSTON & REGIMENTAL ONETON – “ENTER THE 36 TENTACLES” – PRESS RELEASE
Rugged, blunt and paradoxically controversial are what adjectives that can be accurately used to describe the sound of the merge between “graffiti” artist emcee Regimental Oneton and conscious revolutionary-oriented emcee, Mickey Boston Kovaks. The two emcees equate for a rather obscure duo of solo emcees coming together to birth a cut-throat boombap product that is idiosyncratically uncanny to say the least.
While Tame One and Cage came together to bring Leak Bros., the collusion of two unlikely solo emcees always brings about a spontaneous gem. The obscure and rugged boombap product in which spraycan artist, Regimental Oneton, and activist emcee, Mickey Boston Kovaks bring to the fore is one that is boombap, old school and yet contemporary.
While Mickey Boston fulfills his inter-galactic sexual encounters of consensual nature alongside a 36-tentacled Medusa bearing striking resemblance to Maria Menounos, his lyrical counterpart narrates the alien perspective of humans. It remains shocking to hear a another lyrical dimension of Mickey Boston Kovaks as both emcees bring new lyrical constructs to the fine mahogany dining room table. While both, undeniably binary opposites, come together to concoct a final result that is indicative of a hiphop that is notable for its witty punch lines and complex pentameters, penmanship and narrative construct is rather remindful of a combination that reminds listeners to a sound that is akin to that of Swollen Members.
With poignant cover-art that is personally handcrafted by the aerosol can handling of Oneton himself, the pair of unlikely emcees who came together on new productions is crafted as a hiphop that eventually harkens back to the very rap that hiphop fiends from the late 90s initially fell in love with. With their multisyllabic rhymes, relatable topics and grimy soundbeds of mutant, insect, pornographic and tentacle allusions, the emcees bring together the very hiphop that is able to cover ground on very serious themes of the likes of politics, inequality, poverty, drug-addiction and quotidian struggle. As a veteran emcee-activist, Mickey Boston has yet to release his solo album despite having marked a notable presence on all six tracks of his hiphop group’s, Journeymen, debut EP entitled Pledge of the Respirator which was entirely produced by Journeymen emcee/producer, John Wholetrain.
Mickey Boston, although having recorded with hiphop legends of the likes of El Da Sensei, Craig G, Sadat X as well as contemporary emcess of the likes of The Left’s Journalist 103 and BBAS’s Koncept, will be dropping his debut collaborative album with controversial graffiti artist Regimental Oneton entitled Enter the 36 Tentacles which is set for release June19th, 2013 on Planete Break Records.
