Guess Ransom isn’t just a catchy stage name. On It’s Ransom, the latest single off his forthcoming collaborative set with Statik Selektah, the Jersey repper reveals that he really is in the kidnapping business, threatening to abduct sucker emcees and hold them for—you guessed it—ransom. (If you think I’m overusing the word “ransom,” wait’ll you hear the song.) In contrast to the gritty, yet tuneful instrumental that backed lead single Unexplainable, Statik’s beat here is an all-out aural assault, driven by tense strings and a thundering rhythm section. D-Block member Styles P. assists on the guest tip, complementing Ransom’s tough talk with a hard-nosed hook. The Proposal has been pushed back from its original drop date and is now scheduled for release on Tuesday, October 1. In the meantime, fans can hear more from Statik Selektah on his recently-released solo set, Extended Play.
