You know, I was going to illustrate how long fans have been waiting for Southern emcee Stat Quo‘s debut studio album by comparing Statlanta to El Dorado, the legendary city of gold that’s eluded explorers despite centuries of futile searching. Instead, I think I’ll just cut to the chase and say it’s been a really long time. While the LP is still a few months away (so we are told), there is an official prelude mixtape on the horizon – the first leak off which, More Explosive, recently hit the net. Contrary to what the bombastic title may suggest, this cut is a smooth, mellow, and downright soulful affair, which finds the A-town rapper joining forces with hook singer Antonio Mclendon over the laid-back R&B boardwork of Lyr1kz . Stat burns plenty of pent-up energy on the lyrical tip, spitting bars laced with swaggerriffic boasts and movie references (“Batman – I’ll make your life a dark night.”). So, readers, does SQ still have what it takes to ignite the fuse to your heart? If so, you’ll want to mark your calendar for the April 12 release of his new street album, the concisely-titled 2010 Mixtape.
