Petty grudges get an unfairly bad rap. Think about it: forgiving and forgetting may be good for your health, but nothing spurs one to achieve great things more than the simple desire to say “Nyah-nyah, told you so!” to those who doubted you. Booth newcomer Starski, for one, isn’t ashamed to admit that spiting his childhood antagonists is a primary motivator in his grind – as he explains on unreleased cut Hollywood, the Bay Area repper’s not gonna stop till his name’s up in lights for all the haters to see. Over a pensive synth backdrop by Rick V, the emcee bares his soul to reveal the mixture of pain and ambition that fuels him to climb ever higher in the game. Vallejo repper Moe Green guests on the back, expressing his determination “to turn Sonoma Boulevard to Sunset” in his equally driven closing contribution. Starski clearly has the will and the tenacity to succeed – but are you feeling his style, feeling his flow? If so, stay tuned; though this joint isn’t attached to any forthcoming project, we’ll be sure to bring you all the latest from the hip-hop hopeful.
