On his last feature, Statik Selektah joined forces with Booth favorites Skyzoo and Sha Stimuli to lament the mind-numbing repetition inherent in the daily grind: “Different Day, Same Sh*t, ain’t nothing good…” Despite that track’s downbeat theme, its formula – brassy, old-school boardwork, lyrically-talented guest muscle – is one well worth repeating. Im Wit It (Showoff Remix), the final leak off Statik’s Pre-Game EP finds the eminent DJ/producer continuing in a similar vein, this time enlisting the services of BK icon Talib Kweli and Lone Star State emcee/producer Cory Mo to flow over his bombastic, horn-synth production. Talib performs as impressively as ever on the front end, taking aim at the sucker emcees and style-biters, and Mo’s closing verse may come as a pleasant surprise to readers who weren’t won over by his first feature. The Pre-Game is available now from online retailers, and fans should keep it locked to the Booth for all the latest on Statik’s forthcoming studio album, set to hit store shelves sometime in spring of 2010.
