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.
