Statik Selektah Taps 2 Chainz and Wiz Khalifa for Dope New Track ‘Man of the Hour’ [LISTEN]
Statik Selektah just dropped an extremely hot record with 2 Chainz and Wiz Khalifa called "Man of the Hour," which is the first single from his new album 8. The LP will also be the Boston producer's first release since signing to Roc Nation earlier this year.
First up on the track is Mr. Chainz, who continues his hot streak of delivering stellar features.
"I welcome yours with open arms / I give that lady a throat massage / I put your house in my fourth garage / Perpendicular ignorant cross with articulate / Southside, using Ben Franklin for benefits," he spits.
After that, Wiz follows up with lyrics about high quality weed and getting money.
"Riding around in a cloud of that kush smoke / Put my generation on the good dope / Now we all getting high as D'Angelo notes / Getting paid with each quote / Perfecting my game with each stroke," he raps.
The beat of course was crafted by Statik himself, who recruited a slew of musicians to make the track sound sample heavy, and it works on every level. He also talked about an upcoming project that he has with 2 Chainz.
"Me and him have a project that's dropping really soon," said Statik in a past interview. "He's been killing features and his own records for a long time. When you hear these records, it's just so different. No one has ever done what he did with this project. First of all, he's rapping like he's from Brooklyn. It's just very New York. Basically, a down South guy made a New York album, so I'm excited for that."
