Boston based Esoteric is one of the most succesful independent hip hop MC's of the last 20 years and has been at the forefront of the Boston music seen during that time. Whether it's with his DJ 7L, with Vinnie Paz in Army of the Pharaohs, or with 7L and Wu-Tang Clan's Inspectah Deck as the supergroup Czarface, Esoteric is always releasing fresh new material and staying on the cutting edge of the underground scene. I had a chance to chat with my favorite MC and talk our love of Boston Sports, wrestling, the similarities between wrestling and hip hop, the artistry involved in each, stepping inside the ring himself with the Chikara crew, knowing John Cena before wrestling, and more! Esoteric tells of his love of the current Celtics team, Brad Stevens, Kyrie Irvng, meeting Reggie Lewis on the playground in Boston, his love of wrestling growing up, going to the Crockett Cup '87 in Baltimore, the Road Warriors, Remco action figures, growing up an 80's kid, and how he's incorporated his love of sports, wrestling, cartoons, and super heroes into his music. In a day when independent wrestling is at an all-time high, it was an honor to speak to a man who has truly been the definition of independent artist. Enjoy my chat with MC Esoteric!
