Having set the Interwebs on fire with his latest street album, Kenton Dunson‘s undoubtedly feeling On Top of the World right about now. Of course, getting there is only half the battle—the real trick is staying in your newfound position of prominence. Judging by the Maryland emcee’s latest promo single, he’s more than up to the challenge; while his head may be in the clouds, the artist’s not resting on his laurels. As usual, Dunson does double-duty on the mic and behind the boards, cooking up a dreamily stuttering synth instrumental (sampled from indie-electronic group Passion Pit‘s The Reeling) to back his starstruck yet clear-sighted declarations of purpose. As he puts it on the back,: “I am on the move, I am on the move / They say these lights will blind you but they brighten up my view.” Though this joint isn’t included on the project, those who need more Kenton Dunson in their lives can find what they seek on Creative Destruction 2, released in early July and out now online. In addition, fans should watch for the official video for reader-approved cut Firestarter to hit the ‘net in the near future.
