Sullied in a Youtube Era.

“America” – Mickey Boston. Directed by Aaron Ng. Lightcastproductions 2011.

Montreal Independent hiphop artist Mickey Boston releases his second clip under the direction of local Montreal filmmaker, Jamie Zampini. Local Jazz musician and actor Rocko P assumes the role of the unnamed and rather distraught homeless figure who plays synechdic for hiphops uncanny demise in a nexus of perversion that has sorely plagued an art that was once a joyful manifestation from the Old School.

MBs lyrical journey back to the Good Old Days is lyrically illustrated in a verbal and poetic pentameter that renders a discourse manifested in the chronicle of socially dislocated homeless figure who once grew up loving the old school.

Director Jamie Zampini speaks of his direction of the clip in terms of attempting to bridge the old with the contemporary by means of not only exclusively using footage from 1978 and 1982 respectively but also in terms of merging the videography of a lost homeless figure who reflects back to his once vibrant youth.

Montreal Underground hip-hop and Spoken Word artist Mickey Boston speaks randomly alongside super-producer Tu-Three on the set of the “Orientalism” video shoot. Original track “The Epidemic” by Mickey Boston plays in the background (a clip for “The Epidemic” will be shot in the near future.)

  1. I do not suggest tinakg the train. The only way to do so is through New York, and the last time I did it, it took 20 hours due to trouble at the border.Boston is only 5-6 hours from Montreal by car (provided you don’t hit traffic), and you can frequently find carpool offers on Craiglist and the classifed lists of local universities (try McGill), especially if you’re going during a holiday weekend.Otherwise, the Greyhound is also relatively quick (7-8 hours I believe), though less comfortable.
