Height Keech / PT Burnem / Passalacqua / Eze Jackson - "Super Megatron Bomb" (audio) (Premiere)

Detroit and Baltimore rappers release a new collaborative song in preparation of two-month tour.

To whet appetites for the national tour they’re embarking on, four rap acts have amalgamated their sounds for a new tune. “Super Megatron Bomb (waiting for ‘em)” is the collaboration between Detroit’s hip-hop duo Passalacqua and Baltimore rappers Height Keech, PT Burnem, and Eze Jackson.

The song was borne as a warm-up for the rhyme-slingers’ two-month long tour. It was produced by Mickey Free, who also mixed it with Eddie Logix.

“Dan Keech (aka Height Keech) put together the Rap Round Robin Tour as a way to breathe new life into the concert experience,” said Bryan “Mister” Lackner, of Passalacqua. The shows are to feature three stages with two acts per stage and the audience in the center. “Each act plays a song before passing it to the next stage. Height, Eze, and Passalacqua are the main three on tour, with PT Burnem and B Rich (not featured on the track) jumping on a handful of dates.”

The track lives up to its name with its blistering energy, propulsive chugging, and abrasive beats. The plan is for it to be available on a tour cassette at the shows. The cassette is to feature tracks from each of the acts. It will also appear on 20,000 Devastating Watts, a release by Height Keech expected later this year, and on SoundCloud.



As an aside, Passalacqua is also readying their next EP, Banglatown for an April release.
