Back with that grit, tell the soundman to turn this sh*t up. New York MC Hassaan Mackey slangs words and onomatopoeia, rhymes like he wants to, and backs the whole room into a corner with a raw vision of the streets that pierces ordinary experience and gets at life’s marrow.

A combination of braggadocio and introspection, realism and imagination, wordplay and lyricism, all balanced out by a dash of humor. This is what best describes Kenn Starr, a self-proclaimed MC's emcee. This Suffolk, Virginia native penned his first rhyme at the age of ten and hasn't stopped since.
