Stat Quo & Scarface Cross Paths Overtop Some Dr. Dre Production (Audio)

Although Stat Quo’s tenure at Shady/Aftermath Records didn’t work out as planned, the Atlanta, Georgia native got his walking papers in style. Under the tutelage of Sha Money XL, the artist previously known as Status Quo has been able to unveil some of his vaulted recordings with the big dogs, and maintain relations with his friends in high places.

This week, Quo released ATLA (All This Life Allows) with Empire Distribution. With full streams and purchase options available at DJBooth (and other digital retailers), this effort’s most alluring joint on paper is the Scarface-assisted, Dr. Dre-coproduced “The Way It Be.”


Not the first time any of these parties have crossed paths, this is a slower, more pensive song that showcases how poised Stat really is, as one of Atlanta’s most introspective songwriters of the last 10 years.
