After listening to Booth-approved singles The Imperial and God Knows, are you still on the fence about whether to cop Statik Selektah's next solo LP? If so, uh, that's pretty f**king odd. Are you sure you're a hip-hop fan, and not someone who wandered into the Booth by accident? Assuming you are the former rather than the latter, Long Time should help convince you that the set will be worth your time and money. Here, the Bostonian DJ and producer's skillfully juxtaposed percussion, brass and jazz-piano samples set the stage for an avalanche of eccentric lyricism from rising star Action Bronson. Has Statik won you over with this tuneful jam? Then be sure to grab a copy of What Goes Around when it drops via Showoff Records next Tuesday, August 19.
