Most DJBooth listeners have an ear to the underground, preferring last-a-lifetime original tunes over fad-of-the-moment frauds. Consequently, East Coast native Statik Selektah has had people circling October 21 on their calendar for the past few months in anticipation of the release of his new album, Stick 2 Tha Script. Unlike most lead compilationers (yup, we made that word up), however, Statik doesn’t say so much as an ad-lib, instead opting to let his beatwork and features do all the necessary talking. On yet another early listen from the album, Watts’ Glasses Malone and Oakland’s Mistah F.A.B. are joined by Atlanta triple-threat Novel, who cruises over the relaxing beat to paint a musical picture of the laid-back Cali Nights.
