Have you ever thought about the possibility that commercial rap is just a weapon of the system? New York rapper Accent and Slaughterhouse’s KXNG Crooked address just this on their new song “Starshine,” with enough advanced lyricism for any real hip-hop head.
“Starshine” uses the guiding light of the North Star as a metaphor for how Accent stands out within the music industry, and sheds light on how commercial rap is used as a tool by the government to perpetuate capitalism — as well as further class divisions by idealizing material wealth. The song features the extremely talented singer King Deco, and a guest verse by KXNG Crooked, one-fourth of the hip-hop supergroup Slaughterhouse (signed to Eminem’s Shady Records).
