Benjamin Starr- Free Lunch [Album]

Get into some stirring music with a message courtesy of South Carolina‘s own Benjamin Starr via his recently released "Free Lunch" album.  With strident lyrics and a collection of dynamic, soul-rooted beats, this album offers up a frank commentary on race, relationships, manhood, and politics over the course of its 15 tracks. Though labels like “conscious-rap” and “political-rap” may be appropriate when describing "Free Lunch", this project has an incredible and undeniable energy to it- the sort of which is too often missing from so-called “conscious-rap” albums. This is unabbreviated, rebel music that feels like a more street-driven extension of the vibes that M1 and Brian Jackson managed to forge with their New Midnight Band project a few years ago.
