{     Tone Tank and his 'Beast Hombre'     }

Rapper/artist Tone Tank (owner of Scumlife, member of the Nuclear Family, and one half of Iller Than Theirs) has always been obsessed with bootleg action figures. What are they, you ask? They're the weirdo generic-ish toys that you find in 99 cent stores, flea markets or wherever junk can be sold that just ain't legit. The figures tend to be ripoff superheros with mismatched body parts or purposely erroneously painted costumes, like where you think it's the Superman 'S' at first, but instead you realize it's a '5'. The variations are infinite, but as Tone noticed, nearly all of them almost always have some kind of glowing something included, and it's usually their chest.

So that brought Tone to create his own bootleg figure, the 'Beast Hombre', an orange superhero dude with a howling beast of a head and of course, a light embedded in his chest. He made only 24 of these gnarly orange dudes, hand cast in resin and they sold out f-f-f-f-fast.

So why am I mentioning this if you can no longer acquire your own? Because Tone Tank is a fucking rad dude that does a ton of rad shit, and you need to know that. Not only does he make action figures (I mean, who does that?!), he also has an ill clothing line and more importantly, all the music he's involved with is fucking DOPE. Really. Like, I thought it was gonna suck, I'll be honest, but now it's kinda my jam for real. Go check out Tone Tank on Myspace, then get some Iller Than Theirs action, 'cause there are three free downloadable EPs between the two of them that all slay. Get at it.
