Your Old Droog & Termanology Bend A Soulful Statik Selektah Record Till It Curves (Audio)
Although Statik Seleketah said 2015’s Lucky 7 would be his final solo album, he is still hard at work producing high quality tracks for other artists. The producer has a full album on the way with Kxng Crooked, and he seems to have a steady supply of sonic goodness at the ready for those MCs who are in his inner circle.
Two such artists are Termanology and Your Old Droog. In 2010, Statik and Term released a joint album called 1982, and they’ve worked together a number of times before and since. Over the last year, Statik also has forged a strong relationship with Your Old Droog, making several records together and noting that Droog can often be found at the producer’s house. On his latest release, Statik pairs the two MCs and adds Westside Gunn and Conway for good measure.
“The Curve” has all the key elements of a Statik Selektah record. It features an ultra soulful loop, signature scratches, and hungry MCs who flow right in the pocket. It’s unclear if this one will be attached to any larger project on which Statik is working, or whether it’s a holdover from Lucky 7, but it’s great to see him so active.
