Although he’s left mushroom clouds above almost every bridge he’s ever crossed, Bomshot has garnered much negative acclaim through his affiliations — and rivalries — with leading underground acts like Jedi Mind Tricks. Sometime-JMT member Jus Allah even lived in Bomshot’s Boston apartment for a while. After Allah left town, though, Bomshot released their Devil’z Rejects project on his own and kept the profits from the well-received disc as payment for his hospitality.
And he continues to build new connections (while, of course, feverishly severing old ones). He recently toured with Wu-Tang Clansman Cappadonna, and he’s well aligned with integral Clan affiliate Killarmy. (Dom Pachino of that crew secured a distribution deal with Koch for the Holocaust collaboration, and digital sales are being handled by Tajai of Hieroglyphics at his Clear Label imprint.) He’s also down with such New York mixtape kings as Max B and Frenchy Montana. And along with the former, who is currently locked up for murder, Bomshot recently recorded and released a video for the jailhouse anthem “See the Streets Again.”
“I have a record coming out with DJ Khaled in a few weeks,” he points out, “so do you think I give a fuck about what anybody around here thinks? I love Boston because I’m from here, but I don’t see eye to eye with everybody out here. Plus, I like getting blackballed — it challenges me. What I do might be some barbarian shit in other people’s eyes, but to me it makes total sense.”
