Staitk Selektah

Remember when Statik took part in our Behind The Boards series? One thing that always stood out to me was when he said this about features, “I don’t pay anybody; it’s always trade-offs. It’s out of mutual respect, you know?” With that in mind, take a listen to his new effort, The Imperial, which features Action Bronson, Royce Da 5’9” and Black Thought. Knowing they did it out of respect and not for a payday makes this effort even cooler. Of course, it’s not like rapping over Statik’s horn-driven, sample-spliced beat is drudge work either. There is plenty more real motherf**kin’ hip-hop waiting for us on Statik’s What Goes Around album, dropping August 19 via Showoff & Duck Down Music.
