Blaqbonez’s Alter-Ego, Mr. Boombastic Takes Centre Stage on New EP.
100 Crowns’ Blaqbonez’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).
