Highly anticipated album, “Enter the 36 Tentacles”, by Mickey Boston and Regimental Oneton is a journey through the tentacles of a hiphop that is a grimy must for every boombap fiend.

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.

High;y anticipated, Mickey Boston and Regimental Oneton will be serving the Tentacle entrée June 19th, 2013 with a serving that will be widely available on digital platforms such as iTunes and will also be available on bandcamp. Expect an album that hits like a blunt bottle over the head as it is an album not for the faint minded.
