Pardon The Introduction: J Star Waves Canada’s Hip-Hop Flag

Detroit and Canada-raised rapper J Star goes hard in the anti-lames anthem “Disrespectful.” In preparation for his soon-to-be-released The Plane Is My Home: What Did You Expect? mixtape with DJ Whoo Kid, Star revives the Swizz Beatz-produced “Start It Up” beat in a graffiti-splashed visual that moves everywhere like he has. His stank face, nonchalant lean on a Maserati and witty one-liners are enough to not just tolerate the swift camera motions, but enjoy them. I pity the fool who disrespects him. —Adelle Platton
