Starrs & Murph - Loaded Gun

Posted 7 years ago
Boxes for Sale Mixtape

In anticipation of the release of their DJ On Point-hosted Boxes for Sale mixtape, Rhode Island duo Starrs & Murph have released a brand new record entitled Loaded Gun.  Referring to lyrical rather than literal ammunition, the new cut follows in the footsteps of the recently-featured Marry You, which found the duo skewering common male insecurities over a Jackson 5-sampling beat by AraabLoaded Gun finds Araab once again holding the production reins, and it shows; the sample that provides the song’s title and hook (which I was sadly unable to identify) sounds straight out a ‘70s lite-rock record, and the result is an infectiously retro groove that provides the perfect musical backdrop as both emcees pack their verses with wordplay and pop culture references.  Those who like what they hear should stay tuned to the Booth, as Starrs & Murph plan to bring listeners three more Boxes for Sale tracks in the three weeks leading up to the mixtape’s release.
