Page Kennedy Aims To Rewrite The Pages Of His Life That Were Inked In Pain & Vices (Video)
Earlier this month, Page Kennedy released his breakthrough Torn Pages album. The Detroit, Michigan MC (and Weeds actor) teamed with Slaughterhouse’s Kxng Crooked and Royce 5’9 as well as Elzhi, King Los, Trick Trick, and Mr. Porter on the self-released LP.
Through freestyles and other singles, Page has already proven that he can be a ferocious MC when it comes to delivery (see more on that below). The title track, however, combines personal revelation with superior storytelling. Within, Page examines his own transgressions, especially when it comes to dealing with intimate relationships (“I had almost a thousand women under my belt / My cold blood froze my heart, I didn’t want it to melt“).
In the video (which does not feature vocalist Marsha Ambrosious), he comes to his own bedside (after being severely shot) to review the path that led him to this state. The bad choices are played out, as the tears in Page’s diary have led to deep cuts within his life.
#BonusBeat: Page Kennedy released this “Hello (Straight Bars)” freestyle this week:
The instrumental is to a Freeway classic, “What We Do” from 2002.
