Note:

When I first heard Passalacqua’s first project (Mister, Blaksmith, and Dr. B’s collaborative effort) I was instantly drawn to  something unique.  The two emcees, with their diverse styles, coupled with Dr. B’s easy going and jazzy production combined for  one of the most incredible EPs of 2011.

Single You Out: Mic Write x Blaksmith – H.A.W.K.

Ummm…yeah this track definitely qualifies as some serious heat.  This is just a great song.  Dr. B is on the beat.  Mic Write and Blaksmith from Cold Men Young are on the mic.  The chorus on this track is perfect.  I love the hook.  You can add this to a short list of 2011 favorites right now.  The acronym stands for (Heal Apathy With Knowledge).  This track is everything that is good with the art right now.  Great rhymes, content, production, and chorus.  Couldn’t make a better song if you tried!

Interview: Mister (Passalacqua)

Blaksmith and Mister Of Passalacqua

 

A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to shoot the breeze with Mister, of the dynamic duo, Passalacqua.  The project review was so well received by the readership here that I thought I would delve a little deeper into one of the minds of the project and was really glad that I did.  Mister is a very accessible person, who lets you know exactly how he feels.  That, coupled with the fact he is an excellent artist should hold your attention for the next five minutes.  Be sure to check the review and the project if you have not as of yet.

Note:

This is a release that randomly hit my email the other day.  I always have an assortment of releases to look at and review, but I got this in my inbox and decided at six tracks, the least I can do is give it a spin.  I am glad that I did.  Passalacqua  is a dope record by any set of standards.  They pack a lot of punch into these six tracks.  The EP is the type of jam that you would play on a Sunday morning and relax.  It’s jazzy and very harmonious.
