Potholes Premiere: Kenn Starr Returns With “The Movement II” Prod. By Kev Brown

kenn-starr-square-oneEven with the album announcement last week, it still didn’t feel “real” that Kenn Starr is actually dropping a new full-length. I mean, we’ve all been dying to hear a followup to his debut, Starr Status, for eight long years. But here we are, listening to Square One‘s lead single, “The Movement II,” and it’s totally real. If those sentences felt hyperbolic, you need to do one of two things:

  • Cop Starr Status to appreciate what we’ve all been waiting on
  • Listen to the first “The Movement” off Mello Music Group’s Self Sacrifice

Or, you know, you can just kick back and listen to “The Movement II” right here. It’s a damn-good introduction to exactly what makes Starr so interesting—his wordplay, equally laid-back and attention-grabbing demeanor, ear for beats. It’s that last bit that really stands out, thanks to the woozy instrumental supplied by frequent collaborator Kev Brown. He actually handles a bulk of the production on Square One alongside Black Milk, 14KT, Roddy Rod, and Kaimbr.
