Page Kennedy isn’t just an actor.

Page Kennedy might be best known for his acting roles as Radon Randell on Blue Mountain State and U-Turn on Weeds, but the Detroit native is actually quite the versatile talent. In addition to playing a QB and a drug dealer, he’s also a rapper–and a pretty solid one at that. Today, Kennedy dropped off his remix to Jay Z’s “The Story of OJ”, “The Story of Hip-Hop”.

Here, Page details his perception of hip-hop’s evolution by delivering aptly-crafted bars complete with double-entendres and wordplay. A little under two-minutes in, Kennedy raps, “Real people with money don’t even show it, they modest rich wearing a t-shirt and you still know it / But they own this, they own that, and they own you / And how you know because the clothing line they own is on you.” Sheesh.

As a Golden Age purist, Page goes on to discredit the current hip-hop wave due to their lyrical simplicity and for displacing hip-hop. However, he goes on to say that this genre has so many different lanes now, that rather than getting infuriated about one sub-genre, go listen to the one that you like. At the end of the day, there are plenty of options, and there is music for everyone.
