So I've ate, shit, and slept with Mister Jason's Frankensteez project for nearly six days now, and it's rewind-button-city-all-day. Despite having disappeared from the recording side of things for years - since his Porn Theatre Ushers days with Nabo Rawk - Jason managed to return with a comeback strong enough to rape a horse.
Some of you know D-Tension as the Bay State's resident comic rapper, an author of such mirthful gems as "Soccer Mom" and "I'm So Old."
Others know him as an accomplished underground producer who cut seminal heat for the likes of Slug, Encore, Termanology, and Vinnie Paz.
Perhaps you just know him as the old dude in the big t-shirt at the club who drinks way too much and makes young women uncomfortable.
For a second we can stop bitching about how local rap cats never get to rock shows with major touring acts. For one, the homey Wispers is opening for Yelawolf at the Paradise this Friday. But before that, Lowell wit rapper D-Tension and Boston-schooled rhyme polemicist Elemental Zazen are propping Murs at Royale this Thursday.
As some of you might know, Merrimack Valley representative and enduring Mass hip-hop producer -MC D-Tension spent more than a little bit of time in the hospital this past year. With that said, he has returned, and, apparently, has resumed dropping projects about the mundane shit that most MCs ignore - like almost dying in an ICU (for something other than bullet wounds).
It’s amazing how much hate mail I receive accusing me of ignoring local artists. Most hilarious is this ass on Facebook who recently bitched that I “write about the same people over and over.” He might have a solid point, if in the past year alone I didn’t pay significant attention to: Esoteric, Black Madeen, Bad Rabbits, Singapore Kane, Slaine, Boycott Blues, DJ Slim, JDO, M-Dot, Masspike Miles, D-Tension, The Berklee J Dilla Ensemble, Jaysaun, Will C, Amadeus, Rite Hook, WMS the Sultan, GWOP Gang, Wasted Talent, The Dunnas, Dawaun Parker, RADIx, Mr.
