Page Kennedy – “Miss You” (Video)

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.”
