Even though the lyricism was nothing short of pristine, as a producer the first thing which grabbed my attention was the impressive sampling on "Started".

The trumpets birthed life into the track with their larger than life presence, and the arrangement - or should I say - the chopping of the keys added a touch of fineness. When it came to the flows this also reminded me of early 2000's conscious hip hop like Black Star.

"Started" is the first release of 2020 from music producer P.R. It is a jazz fused hip-hop single co-produced with Stan Forebee and has guest features from both Dessy Hinds of Pro-Era and Blu.
