In Stratosphere, also featured today, DMV rapper Thad Reid uses altitude as a metaphor for success in the music game. Kali? He pretty much just loves his weed. Newly-leaked mixtape cut Higher may not contain any blinding philosophical insights, but those looking a fresh, spacey soundtrack for a stoned or straight vibe-out session could hardly do better. As on previous feature Cali Kali, Statik Selektah mans the boards, cooking up a hazy, sampled groove as the West Coast emcee gives his thoughts on weed, women and more weed. Massachusetts emcee Termanology handles guest duties, waxing poetic about his favorite smokable substance and painting a lyrical portrait of his ideal woman (“a curvy, curly Puerto Rican Shirley Temple”) on the front end. If Kali and Term’s woozy musings leave you hungry for more, stay tuned – the headliner’s latest mixtape, The Coast, is scheduled to hit the ‘net before the week is out.
