Kirill “Boombl4” Mikhaylov is known for coordinating Natus Vincere’s Major Championship, but his next task could be rap music full-time.
Former Natus Vincere Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Boombl4 player could start a music career after his sudden kick from his former team. The game’s frontman posted several videos of himself rapping on social media. Boombl4 has previously sung and rapped in promotional material for the Na’Vi CSGO team.
The move comes after Boombl4’s controversial removal from Major Natus Vincere CSGO’s winners list. A split and subsequent controversy may have been spurred by an image of Boombl4’s girlfriend apparently supporting Russia during its ongoing conflict with Ukraine. Boombl4 originally proposed to him after winning the $2 million Stockholm Major at the end of 2021.

While this may come as a complete shock to some fans, this is far from the first time Boombl4 has busted a rhyme. He previously rapped and sang in promotional content for the Natus Vincere CSGO team.
Although there is a lot of money to be made rapping, Boombl4 has already made a lot of money during his professional CSGO career. According Esports Earnings, Boombl4 has earned around $1,069,330 throughout his competitive career in prize money alone. The Stockholm Major alone earned him $400,000 of the championship prize and an Intel Grand Slam. This is in addition to money earned through team salaries and sponsorships.
It’s also possible that Boombl4 is having fun in the studio and looking for a new CSGO team after its music hiatus.
