Who is Mic-Key Brockovich? Usually unnerved by surroundings, an emcee who narrates his story in a fury of prolific linguistics that slowly reveals itself as a fiendishly layered construction of both Truth and illusion. The universal human condition is the focus as the ideal of grassroots hip-hop is the medium of expression. With echoes of Beckett, Poe, and Paul Bowles, Mic-Key Boston is a tale of horror and madness, storytelling and skepticism, an emcee whose dizzying style lays bare the deepest layers of subconscious spirituality. Simply put, that Hard Body Original Boombap in a lost Golden Era.
Grounded and back down to Earth…
