Video: Starlito – “Err Time” ft. MobSquad Nard
Fresh Off A Successful Nationwide Tour with Don Trip Promoting Step Brothers Three, The Tennessee Titan Revisits His Manifest Destiny Mixtape in This New Visual
“With Starlito and Don Trip, nothing is what it seems on the surface. On “Whistle Blowers,” a highlight from their recent EP Step Brothers (Karate in the Garage), they joyride the featherweight and Tarantino-sampling beat from Rob Stone’s “Chill Bill,” taking it into much stranger lands.” – Pitchfork
“Step Brothers Two feels much more embattled and dark and all the better for it: Swooping trap meets Sigur Rós strings on outsider anthem “Leash On Life” (whose empathy even reaches to school shooters), while storytelling street rap is taken to the level of Greek tragedy on “Caesar and Brutus.” – SPIN
“The rap duo’s new project features plenty of the nimble lyricism that’s helped make them one of the better pairs in the rap game.” – XXL
Whether he’s rapping alone or teaming up with his Step Brother Don Trip, Nashville’s Starlito brings lyrical fire with his laconic, laid-back delivery. Swapping street stories with MobSquad Nard for four minutes of hookless bars, Starlito celebrates his consistent excellence on “Err Time.” A standout cut from Starlito’s Manifest Destiny, released this past February, “Err Time” finally gets the visual treatment, with Lito repping his hometown Stanley Cup contenders, the Nashville Predators. “Err Time” is filmed mostly in beautiful black-and-white, with colorful interstitial in which Lito tosses dice and Nard shines like the night sky. Manifest Destiny was the direct predecessor to Starlito’s two most recent collaborations with Don Trip: the Karate in the Garage EP and the acclaimed full-length Step Brothers Three. The video follows an eventful Memorial Day weekend in the news for Starlito, who had a brief war of words about appropriation and the Sauce Twinz, among other things, with Post Malone.
A hard-working Nashville emcee with a cult following and critical acclaim from the likes of Pitchfork, NOISEY, Passion Of The Weiss and others, Starlito balances wise, world-weary rhymes with a poetic pen and a wry sense of humor. Introduced to one another by popular Memphis rapper Yo Gotti, Lito and Memphis rapper Don Trip caught lightning in a bottle with Step Brothers, which Pitchfork listed at #41 in their list of the 50 Best Mixtapes of the Millennium. The duo repeated their success with 2013’s Step Brothers Two, a critically acclaimed, Billboard-charting album boasting the cult hit “Caesar & Brutus,” and several other quality visuals that combined for over 10 million YouTube views.The duo recently returned from the Karate in the Garage Tour, which spanned from SXSW to hometown performances in Knoxville and Nashville earlier this month, and recently stopped by Shade45 for an interview with Sway in the Morning, recorded a Facebook Live video with Mashable, sat down for an interview with Hot 97’s Peter Rosenberg, and appeared on SLAM Magazine’s Respect The Game podcast.
