Boogiemonsters




Boogiemonsters were an American rap group composed of Bronx, New York born rapper Mondo McCann, Alaskan native Vex Da Vortex (Sean Pollard) and Jamaican-born brothers Myntric (Sean Myers) and Yodared (Ivor "Al" Myers). Vex, Myntric and Yodared met in high school in Virginia where their families had relocated from New York City. They formed a group and began performing together in talent shows. After graduation, Vex and Yodared attended Virginia State University while Myntric attended Virginia Union University. Fellow Virginia State student McCann was recruited into the group. The group performed at campus shows and won first place at Howard University's Hip-Hop Convention. They quickly landed a record deal with Pendulum/EMI and, in 1994, released Riders of the Storm: The Underwater Album.[1][2]

After the release of the first album, the group became Seventh-day Adventists.[2] Yodared and Myntric left the group as both felt that the hip hop lifestyle was not in line with their religious convictions.[2] Yodared became the head pastor at the Templeton Hills Seventh-day Adventist Church in Templeton, California.[2] Pendulum Records ceased operation and EMI was the sole record company for their second album, God Sound (a darker, mature, hardcore, and pious recording), was released in 1997. After that, appearances were sporadic on compilations and 12 inch singles. The group has disbanded since.

In 2008 member Vex Davortex released an instrumental album titled VEXSTRUMENTALS.
