Stat Quo - Ridin’
Good news!!! After what feels like more than decade of waiting I finally have a new single from Stat Quo’s epically delayed album Statlanta! Sorry, I’m just messing with you. Other than Ghetto USA we still don’t know what the prolific ATL emcee’s album will sound like, but in the meantime he’s putting in overtime to keep eager fans satisfied with new mixtape tracks like Ridin’. Produced by the elliptical Focus…, who here flips Dr. Dre’s classic Next Episode beat, sharpening the original with some well placed snares, Ridin’ is, of course, Stat’s show as he drops the kind of precisely cadenced and cleverly worded flows that have earned him a sizable following on the Booth. But maybe I’m riding alone in my appreciation for this track? Maybe the Booth feels differently? If so, please, let me know. Stat’s new, Dr. Dre influenced mixtape 2010 is set to drop this Friday. As for Statlanta, we’re being promised it will finally hit our eardrums on June 22 (knock on wood).
