Kenn Starr is back with new music in “The Definition”.
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,Â Starr Status, Kenn Starr is baggage free on his sophomore album,Â 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,Â Square One is Kenn Starr getting back to his foundation to begin anew. The laid back flow remains intactâ€”complementary to the Kev Brownâ€™s vintage soul-crate productionâ€”but the perspective is written with a wisdom earned through seeing opportunities that overpassed his doorstep. On â€œCigarettes & Whiskeyâ€œ he addresses his history with passing fancy and a buried hatchet, â€œplease pardon my view points /Â Starr Status wasnâ€™t a classic but had a few joints,â€ and makes no qualms about his hiatus.Â 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 â€œProduct Of The Basementâ€ and album closer, â€œFarewellâ€. Kenn also enlists Mello Music standout yU, and long time compatriot Wordsworth, as well as the lush voice of singing star Melanie Rutherford.Â Square One is built from the underground-up as Starr still writes from the mindset of being a product of the basement.
