Starrs & Murph - Hangover (Freestyle)
Ever had a serious Hangover and later, once the effects had worn off, found yourself thinking “You know, I really wish I could relive that experience?” I’m guessing that’s happened to roughly, uh, nobody – well, nobody except the hip-hop heads who enjoyed DJ/producer Statik Selektah‘s Booth-acclaimed solo set by that name. If you fall into that category, the latest freestyle/mixtape bonus track from Starrs & Murph should be right up your alley. Over the lushly-sampled beat that backed standout track Night People, the Rhode Island natives (and freestyle series alumni) showcase their formidable mic skills, delivering bar after bar of alliterative, intricately rhymed lyrical goodness: “I’m a metaphor magician, simile sorcerer, narrative nympho, punchline porno star…” Damn! While I’ll leave it to you to decide how this cut stacks up against the original, (ft. Freeway, Red Cafe & Masspike Miles), I can’t imagine too many listeners walking away form this one unimpressed.
