Statik Selektah announced his next album “What goes around”, coming August 19, with the “Carry on” joint. It features Beast Coast’s Joey Badass and Gangsta Gibbs aka Freddie Gibbs, an interesting mix that turned out really dope, judge by yourself below my rambles. Statik keeps it interesting with his latest release”The Imperial”, first the beat is straight fire, imperial even. One of those “make-you-feel-on-top-of-the-world” kind of beat. Secondly because of the features, again. Heavy weight lyricists Action Bronson, Royce Da 5’9 and Black Thought coming together. They all go hard but I want to underline Black Thought’s performance. He simply murders the beat, saying “he still got it” would be an insult. He reminds us of how great he was, is and will be.
I’ll let Black Thought’s verse speak for itself.
” Ayo the, the, the boss is back
Take that, and while you’re at it, make my coffee black
I tried to tell you mothafuckas, don’t respond, react
I’m the nastiest to do it, as a matter of fact
Yo who your top 5? Jay, Biggie, Pac, Nas
I ain’t tryna hear another name if it’s not mine
Any side talkin’, I’ma consider it shots fired
At the outlier, and start it up like a hotwire.”
