Statik Selektah

Fresh off stepping into the Booth for an exclusive Behind the Boards interview, Beantown DJ and producer Statik Selektah returns to our pages with a brand new single off his next studio album. This cut borrows its title and sampled hook from AZ‘s verse on Nas‘s classic Life’s a B*tch: “Others such as myself are tryin’ to Carry On tradition.” Appropriatey, the record has a distinct throwback feel. Over the headliner’s jazzy boom-bap boardwork, East Coast revivalist Joey BadA$$ and Gary, Indiana gangsta Freddie Gibbs deliver intricately-flowed verses jam-packed with lyrical knowledge. Feeling it? More tmieless grooves and quality guest bars await on What Goes Around, dropping August 19, via Showoff/Duck Down.
