“Enter” she said…

What happens when a blunt and controversial “graffiti” artist and a conscious revolutionary-oriented emcee come together to record a full-length hiphop album? The result is a sheer idiosyncratically obscure and rugged boombap product in which spraycan artist, Regimental Oneton, and activist emcee, Mickey Boston Kovaks bring to the fore. In essence, the two emcees, from opposites ends of the hiphop spectrum, combine to bring about a 15-track dramatic-tentacle-mutation of an album entitled “Enter the 36 Tentacles”.

With obscure themes, the album is a colossally slimy tentacle pleasuring a clitoris. With its galactic themes accompanied by its rugged boombap production, “Enter the 36 Tentacles” is backed, in majority, by the production of young beat prodigy, XEptional. While tentacle erotica, and galactic erotica likewise, infuse science-fiction themes, the two emcees create an album that is a rather intriguing journey into graffiti and galactic-android-tentacle porn. 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.

Binary opposites, Oneton and Brosky come together to concoct a final result that is indicative of an album notable for its incredibly witty punchlines and complex pentameters. Emphasis on penmanship and narrative capability is also noteworthy as the pseudo-phallic symbolism of tentacles weaves its way into the album’s complex and riveting themes accompanied by skyscraping beats and turntablism powered by the hands of DJ Conn-Shawnery, DJ CASE and DJ Overflow.

At the cusp, “Enter the 36 Tentacles” is laden with a signature boombap sound that does not disappoint alongside the aid of poignant cover-art handcrafted by the Oneton himself. Regimental Oneton and Mickey Boston bring an album that harkens back to the rap that hiphop heads from the late 90s initially fell in love with. With their multisyllabic rhymes, relatable topics and grimy soundbeds of tentacle allusions, the album is a tentacle that coils around the psyche of the listener. Aside from the brilliance of the album’s sonic blueprint, the final product is an innovative album that reinvents the wheel vis-à-vis narrative and linguistic creativity.

when art and hiphop merge it becomes a juicy tentacle manifested in a rather demented yet surgically conscious journey between two different points of view: that of Mickey Boston and that of Regimental Oneton. It's a gift to hear two opposites come together to make music and art. The result is a debut 15-track album...

When art imitates life and life imitates art: Mickey Boston and Regimental Oneton, although being opposites, paint a musical canvas with lyrics that reveal the brunt realities of life with it's ups and downs and everything in between. Just get the Enter the 36 Tentacles album.
