Push It: It's What You Do - GEICO

I hate to give them a free plug - it's not like GEICO will break off any ducats because I show this ad - but it's too funny to me as an old Salt-N-Pepa fan not to.

Crates: Following up their two man collaborative project, Keep It Human, MC (Corey Gipson) and Producer (Wrathmatics) bring one of their illest tracks, 98' Explorer to life with matching visuals. Corey flexes his creative versatility here, not only as the videos producer/editor, but also by showcasing his spray can skills.

Video: Reks - "Eyes Intro"

Matt: REKS & Hazardis Soundz collaborative album, Eyes Watching God, displayed an uncanny chemistry, as they linked up to create a concept album which showcased the contrast between “good and evil” beginning with a “God Side” and finishing with a “Devil Side”; and the result is a highly conscious and fiercely political album.

Matt: 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.

Kenn Starr Announces Album "Square One"

MMG: Kenn Starr sees his career at square one, despite being regarded among the elite of the DMV scene, 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 vintage 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 One is built from the underground-up as Starr still writes from the mindset of being a product of the basement.
