Statik Selektah Rounds Up Action Bronson, Royce Da 5’9″ & Black Thought for ‘The Imperial’

Statik Selektah

Statik Selektah is basically the DJ Khaled of the underground, without the incessant self-promotion. The Lawrence, Mass., native has made all the right connections since entering the game more than a decade ago, but most importantly, he knows how to translate those relationships into dope collaborations for die-hard rap fans.

Even as early as his 2007 debut, ‘Spell My Name Right: The Album,’ Statik has been pairing up legends like Styles P, Q-Tip and KRS-One, and with his forthcoming sixth (yes, sixth) LP, ‘What Goes Around,’ due out later this summer, that formula has yet to feel played out.

We’ve already been treated to a jazzy, Nas-sampled duet between Brooklyn youngster Joey Bada$$ and Gary’s most gangsta, Freddie Gibbs, with ‘Carry On.’ And for the second sample of his soon-arriving album, Statik calls on premier lyricists Action Bronson, Royce Da 5’9″ and Black Thought for this lush little number called ‘The Imperial.’

You already know this track is super-duper lyrical, so there’s no need to point out the obvious. We just wish you all the best in trying to pick a favorite verse, because we sure as hell can’t. Like Hot Chocolate once said, everyone’s a winner.
