Free Mp3: Kenn Starr f/ Melanie Rutherford “The Definition” (Produced by Black Milk)


Kenn Starr sees his career at square one, despite being regarded among the elite of the DMV scene, and being in the inner circle of producers Oddisee and Kev Brown, and having his newest album signed to Mello Music Group. Eight years since his debut, Starr Status, Kenn Starr is baggage free on his sophomore album, Square One.

Largely produced by Kev Brown with a nice block of production by Black Milk, and additional work by 14KT, Roddy Rod, and Kaimbr,Square One is Kenn Starr getting back to his foundation to begin anew. The laid back flow remains intact—complementary to the Kev Brown’s vintage soul-crate production—but the perspective is written with a wisdom earned through seeing opportunities that overpassed his doorstep. On “Cigarettes & Whiskey“ he addresses his history with passing fancy and a buried hatchet, “please pardon my view points / Starr Status wasn’t a classic but had a few joints,” and makes no qualms about his hiatus.Square One is the only album Kenn Starr could write in order to bid farewell to days past and move forward.

With the firmest of grips on reality, Kenn Starr has kept his Low Budget Crew ties in toe, including Sean Born who makes appearances on “Product Of The Basement” and album closer, “Farewell”. Kenn also enlists Mello Music standout yU, and long time compatriot Wordsworth, as well as the lush voice of singing star Melanie Rutherford. Square Oneis built from the underground-up as Starr still writes from the mindset of being a product of the basement.

“Shine” is the lead single taken from underground staple and Beantown’s multi-award winning lyricist M-Dot’s two part debut album “Ego and the Enemy” (in stores 2015). The LP’s will feature production by Hi-Tek, Marley Marl, M-Phazes, Marco Polo, 7L and many more surprise industry respected beat-smiths (TBA). Note to DJs: ‘Shine’ is 100% obscenity free


Free Mixtape: HARN SOLO – Travelling Man

Traveling Man, the most recent effort from the continuously creative Harn SOLO, is more than just a title. SOLO’s eleventh creative endeavor, Traveling Man tells the tale of a young music fan from Southern California that chased his dreams to New Orleans before stopping in his current locale of Denver. Those familiar with the past releases from Harn SOLO will not be disappointed to see imaginative boundaries continued to be pushed; something that is lacking in today’s mainstream music. More than a rapper, but rather an artist, Harn SOLO has added another masterpiece to his collection with Traveling Man.

After his recent relocation from New Orleans to Denver, Harn linked up with recording engineer Jonathan Klein to document the experience. Assisting with the overall transportation theme, Traveling Man features airplane and train audio clips handpicked from creative partner Caliobzvr. The graphic design for the release was conceptualized by Elespee of Guerilla Publishing Company – NYC.

Free Mp3: Devine Carama – 10 Blog Commandments

“Being an older MC that fell in love with the culture during the golden era, I’ve come to grips that the game has changed. The way artists expand their reach and connect with more fans has evolved. One major change has been the Internet and hiphop blogs play a huge role in that evolution. As an indie artist, I’ve learned the hard way in how I should submit my music to blogs & websites. Some of that knowledge came from trial & error but a lot of that knowledge came from my friend Praverb The Wyse. So in the spirit of keeping his legacy alive, I wanted to drop some knowledge for other up & coming MCs like he dropped knowledge on me!”
