After dropping two mixtapes of Straight Bars, Page Kennedy will release his sophomore album, Same Page Different Story, on August 10th.
To kick off the campaign, the Detroit native takes a page out of Common’s rhyme book and drops a nostalgic ode to hip-hop with “Miss You.”
“I wrote this song because of the increasing influence of hip-hop by those who I feel only get into music for clout,” Page says. “I grew up on this artform and artists like Slick Rick, Kool Moe Dee, LL Cool J, Run-DMC & Ice Cube, it made me fall in love with hip-hop because of their vivid storytelling and wordplay. So when I see that the art is completely changing and moving towards drug advocates, or only about how much money someone has and word play is now an antiquated way of expression; it drives me nuts. Common, had a song when I was younger called ‘I Use To Love Her.’ When I first heard it, I was blown away.”
“With the recent passing of my friend XXXtentacion, I realize I have even more of a duty to show the youth a different and better way,” he continued. “Having concept songs and stories that are showcased in the mainstream is a step in the right direction.”
