Termanology & Lil Fame Mash Out A Tough Statik Selektah Beat
When the trio of Termanology, Lil Fame, and Statik Selektah connect, it is an energetic affair. Term’ has been down with Statik Selektah throughout his career, and the same goes for M.O.P.’s Lil Fame. Not surprisingly, the Lawrence, Massachusetts MC has side groups with both artists, 1982 and Fizzyology respectively.
Statik and Termanology dropped their third full-length collaborative album titled Still 1982 at the end of November. They have given Heads visuals for “Still” featuring songstress Kendra Foster, “F*ck Ya Lyfestyle” featuring Battle Rap beast Nems and young spitter Beanz, “Haunted” featuring the Terror Squad’s latest addition UFO Fev, and as of today, “It’s On You” featuring a hard verse by Fame and the vocal stylings of Reggae singer Haile Supreme.
Over a neck-snapping snare and unassuming keys, Term’ and Fizzy Womack let listeners know that you can not rely on anybody except yourself to get ahead in this life. As the chorus states “From the roof to the basement / You’ve been complacent / Waiting for a sign to drop right out of the sky / Don’t wonder why you haven’t been put on / It’s on you.” The powerful hook encourages those with dreams and aspirations to take responsibility for their future.
In the video Fame, Haile, and ‘Ology post up outside the well-known Big Boy Deli on Broadway in Brooklyn. In their flyest gear, the three artists take turns in the spotlight, mugging for the camera. It’s nothing fancy but the footage, and the way it’s edited is eye-catching regardless.
Still 1982 also features Conway The Machine and Mtume, among others.
