AUDIO: Blaqbonez – “Mr. Boombastic” (EP)

100 CrownsBlaqbonez’s is a one-man freight train carrying a never-ending supply of compelling content. Between a number of stellar music releases, and ancillary antics in 2019, the outspoken rapper has become must-see entertainment. Most recently, he showed off his acting chops in his Therapy Sessions skits, which are premised on Blaq and his Shaggy-inspired alter-ego, Mr. Boombastic, going to therapy to smooth over disputes. And following from this latest uptick in content, Blaqbonez’s alter-ego releases a new EP eponymously titled, Mr. Boombastic.

Mr. Boombastic is a seven-track project, sporting overt Reggae influence, which features a deviation from the hardcore rap style usually associated with Blaqbonez. Blaq describes Boombastic as his groovy alter-ego, and this is emphasized over the course of the project, with Boombastic’s penchant for up-tempo dance records, as well as his use of patois and fashion sense (see EP cover).

The project also features a number of interesting highpoints, including an attention-grabbing intro in Run My Race, fan favourite, Shut Up, a stellar feature from the infamously reclusive, Black Magic on Magic, as well as a superb verse from Falz on title track, Boombastic. Tracks like Promo, God When and Come 4 U also help round out what is overall a smooth and versatile project that is appropriate for a myriad of settings.
