I’ll admit my ignorance from the beginning: I was not familiar with Boneintell’s music or who he was until six months ago. I had never heard his previous mixtape, Changing Faces vol1, so I was only familiar with the free downloads on OHH and the comments from other artists (all positive) that I have heard. Though I wish I could have been exposed to more of his work much earlier, the “Changing Faces Vol 2” mixtape was has been one hell of an introduction to who Boneintell is as an artist.

From beginning to end, “Changing Face vol 2” highlights Bone’s ability as a story teller. Each song is a different glimpse into his personality and his life. From funny tracks like “Fat Boi Shyt” and “My Dick” to the more contemplative tracks like “Stand Out” and “Prophets Plea” to his use of sample from T-Pain to Portis Head, Bone shows his range of his musical influences and talent.

All of the collaborations on this album, from Pegg Starr to Stern to Sonny Lewis were strong. But the stand out song on the album for me was “Legend” featuring King Jabbar. In this haunting and contemplative reflection of his position in the music industry, Bone professes that he doesn’t think the game is ready for him. I think its time we all get ready.

With Changing Faces volume 2, Boneintell is not just speaking to the Out Hip Hop community. He is speaking to the broader Hip Hop audience. Forcing the average Hip Hop heads to nod their head in agreement with his lyrics, making the casual listener slow their steps and take heed to his words. Bone’s lyrics speak to all the underdogs, the people who have been counted out before being given a proper chance and still manage to produce a product/an outcome three times better than the rest. And this is a message, a theme that many of us from all walks of life can relate to.

Not only is this a good album, it brings us back to the fact that Hip Hop is about poetry; it is about the truth and the truth is often contradictory and complex. It is refreshing to hear an album that isn’t centered around a gimmick or controversy, just talent and a story. Cuz at the end of the day, that’s all that most Hip Hop heads (Real Hip Hop Heads) really want—someone with talent to tell them a good damn story, one with some truth , passion and urgency. And it is obvious, to me at least, after listening to this mixtape that Boneintell is an artist who truly understands that.

Stand out songs are “Legend”, “Fat Boi Shyt”, “I Swear”, “Stand Out” and “In it to Win it”. But listen to the whole album. Take advantage of the fact that someone is willing to share this type of brilliance for free and download it immediately. I want to be one of the first to say that I call legend status on this mixtape. This is one for the books, children. - www.outhiphop.com

Bio

Bone Intell “I don't want to be looked at as a stereotype, or anything as such. At the end of the day I'm a man. --Bone Intell When people first meet the rapper/producer Bone Intell, they are drawn to his swagger. When they listen to his music, they're going to be impressed with his ability to rap about different topics including street life, partying, love gained, love lost, and heartbreak. Born and raised in Buffalo, New York, and currently residing in New Jersey, Bone (as he's called by fans) got his start in music at the age of 14 by freestyling and writing rhymes. He cites rappers Wu-Tang Clang, The Notorious B.I.G., and singer Jamie Fox as his main influences. His desire to make hip-hop his career soon emerged when he went to college. “I was really trying to pick it up there and expand my lyrics and lyricism,” the rapper said. After earning his Associates Degree in Broadcast Journalism, Bone continued to hone his skills, as well as beginning to produce his own beats. This lead him to release his debut mixtape “Changing Faces,” earning him rave reviews from his fans, and leading him to perform at many clubs and events. Bone projects a very masculine, aggressive, hardcore rap persona – one which some elements find uncomfortable. Bone's second mixtape, “Changing Faces Voume 2” has something for everybody. It has some club bangers, including “Cheeks,” which will have listeners trying to pursue that person who captures they eyes with their dancing. “Cheeks is a club song. 'I wanna get up in them cheeks' is something you would say to somebody at the club you trying to get with” he says of the dance track. “Cartoon” is a song that showcases Bone's animated personality and playful side; while the touching heartfelt “Missing You” a song that is dedicated to the rapper's late grandmother. “It's talking to her from the beyond, letting her know that I miss her and that it's a different time for me, because trying to handle that being a musician is really hard.” “Intuition” bring a message to the youth of the next generation. It addresses how they look up to rappers who rap about hustling, violence and promoting negativity. “It may be where I came from, but it's not where I am now. As a man, you have to put away childish things; and in my book those are childish things. In addition to working on his mixtape, the rapper is also working on his full length solo album as well as recording with rappers Bry'nt, Medino Greene, as members of Out Mobb, a group of rappers, with production by Bone Intell. Bone believes the group will break new ground in the world of hip-hop. Website: www.boneintell.com
