Astro may be a familiar face in The DJBooth, but the B.K. rap wunderkind is still a Stranger to much of the general public. On a newly-released standout off his latest street album, the artist ponders whether his lyrical talents will propel him into the wider consciousness, or whether his commitment to realness will keep him bubbling below the radar like so many others. Boston heavyweight Statik Selektah mans the boards, serving up a scintillating, sampled beat as the headliner reflects on his alienation from the game. Fresh off lending his flow to Dynasty‘s Star and the Sky, NYC mic-murderer Skyzoo offers a few hard-won pearls of wisdom on the back. Feeling it? This contemplative cut is just one of many bangers to be found on Astro’s Starvin Like Marvin For a Cool J Song, released to the ‘net yesterday for free digital download.
