“Detroit-based MCs Mister and Blaksmith have symbiotically stitched together keen, canny rhymes that vary in shades, inflected their own personal influences, but wrapped and worn gracefully together upon the same provocative quilt. The dynamic meshing of their respective styles is galvanized by their inventive live presentations, conceptual, theatrical, almost performance art; altogether curious and highly engaging. Audiences often exclaim that the allure is that one doesn’t know what they’ll do next. That’s what distinguishes Passalacqua; ‘Let the rap be the constant,’ Blaksmith said, ‘everything else is whatever.’” – Jeff Milo
