Broken Robots (Kat Baker, Tony Baker, Lonnie Phillips) are back with a new single introducing Chicago rap artist Trevor Pilz. The track titled BOOM BADA BAM BING, is a rebellious anthem channeling the likes of Cypress Hill’s B-REAL and the great Eminem. Kat Baker and Trevor Pilz share the infectious half rapped, half sung chorus, with Tony Baker on the guitar leads and rhythm production. The whole song feels throwback in its influences yet contemporary in its execution.
“Bottom with the rocks in handcuffs, put them in a box with padlocks,” Kat Baker sings with her signature pianissimo style. “Singing boom bada bam bing, still do the damn thing, whatcha gonna do about it, bitch not a damn thing,” Trevor Pilz responds in the two part hook that evokes the idea of the sovereign citizen freedom fighter. Trevor Pilz being relatively new to the scene, but having such a strong sonic start thanks in part to Broken Robots, is quite commendable. A lot of artists in the scene do not get the privilege to have quality production, even less have the skill and talent to back it up like Trevor Pilz clearly possesses.
The track, BOOM BADA BAM BING, is two verses with two hooks, beginning and culminating in sound bites of various interactions with the police. The single infers this disharmonious relationship with those who are meant to protect and serve, but most of us know that is not really why they are here in our communities. BOOM BADA BAM BING, the new single by Trevor Pilz in collaboration with Broken Robots is available on YouTube and SoundCloud today with a lyric visual to accompany it on YouTube!
