In a genre where the obsessive pursuit of fame, fortune and worldly goods is the rule, R.I. twosome Starrs & Murph are the exception. On their latest mixtape leak (making its world premiere in the Booth), the exclusive freestyle series alumni express their life philosophy by way of a quote from soul singer Greg Perry: “I Want to Live and let live / Live and let live, love and let love…” Fortunately for us, the duo don’t let that sentiment stop them from telling us how they really feel about their competition; over the sampled boardwork of AraabMuzik (who contributed similarly fresh, retro production to Marry You and Loaded Gun), Starrs & Murph spit braggadocious verses peppered with harsh words for haters and sucker emcees. In lieu of the usual hook, the beatsmith ties it all together with some immortal words from Biggie Smalls, including the oft-quoted line: “I would never wish death on nobody, ‘cause there ain’t no comin’ back from that.” Fans can find this track and much more on AllHipHop/Sneaker Junkies/DJBooth.net-presented BFS2:The Lost Package, set to hit our front page on August 9.
