Statik Selektah ft. Raekwon, Joey BadA$$ & Black Thought - Bird’s Eye View
From where Statik Selektah‘s perched, other artists look like a bunch of scurrying ants. On single numero uno off his next studio album, the Boston heavyweight enlists a few of his most lyrically-talented homies to offer a Bird’s Eye View on the game, for the benefit of those down below. First to flow over Selektah’s beat, a stirring flip of Bill Medley’s Peace Brother Peace, Wu-Tang vet Raekwon delivers a tightly-wound, caked-up opener before passing the mic to his young colleague, Joey BadA$$. After the Pro. Era ringleader’s finished delineating his new-age hip-hop philosophy, Roots frontman Black Thought steps into the spotlight for a poetically abstract final verse.
