Stat Quo - Dear Summer (Pt. 1)

Posted 8 years ago
Tags: Stat Quo
Producer:
Just Blaze
Album:
Unreleased

When he first signed with Eminem and Dr. Dre to Shady/Aftermath in 2003, Stat Quo was ready to release his debut album, Statlanta.  Fast-forward to 2008 and, unbelievably, the project still has no set release date.  Detailing detailing of the last five years through a freestyle over Just Blaze‘s Dear Summer beat (originally used by Jay-Z on Memphis Bleek‘s 534), Stat starts at his signing day and covers his frustration over the constant delays, as well as labelmate and neighbor Bobby Creekwater getting inked to the label.  While it’s unknown whether or not Stat will get his shine any time soon, Dear Summer (Pt. 1) reveals an inside look at an artist who has made a home on his label’s back burner.  There’s a reason why more and more emcees are going the independent route; a Dear Summer Pt. 2 might lead him in that direction.
