Likens his absence from the music industry as being abducted by a UFO and resurfaces as a “rap astronaut” with superior MC skills.
(Brooklyn, NY) H Cipher Entertainment has released “Rematerializin” on April 23,2012, a new hip hop LP by Ken Omega.
Ken Omega has been on the hip hop scene for years rhymin’ and grindin’. Going by the name of Bosco Money, he was the vocalist (along with Sam Sever on the decks) for the 90′s Def Jam duo, Downtown Science. Their best known songs are “Room To Breathe”, “Radioactive”, “This Is a Visit”, “If I Was”, “Summertime” and “The Topic Drift”.
Since Def Jam, Ken Omega/Bosco Money went on to drop several underground, independent hits such as “I Get Lifted” & “Ride The B Side” in 1992 and “Da Plan” in 1993. After “Da Plan”, Ken Omega took a break from music to finish his BS in Business and Aviation, and complete his Private Helicopter License. He subsequently went on to gain his Commercial Helicopter Pilot rating as well. But it wasn’t long before he was back at the music.
In 1999 Ken Omega/Bosco Money Released the LP “Secret Agent” – a hip hop opera about a spy who goes undercover to rescue rap from the clutches of commercialism. In 2002 Ken explored other music genres and released the funk rock LP “Rock Star”. That album featured the highly acclaimed song “Sun God” which aired on the classic rock station Q104.3 FM in the NY / Tri-State area.
In 2003, Ken returned to hip hop, with a new LP called “Omega 710″. A new name and flow was beginning to emerge. The most noteworthy cuts off that album are “Heat”, “Is You Is” and “All Jokes Aside”, the last of which featured a guest appearance by MC Fortune 500. Read the rest of this entry →
