Anoyd & Statik Selektah’s Video Gets You In The Mood For Summer
This month, Bloomfield, Connecticut MC Anoyd partnered with Statik Selektah and ShowOff Records to release Yuck!. Featuring Nick Grant, Ufo Fev, and Statik’s 1982 band-mate Termanology, the 10-song collection showcases one of the more exciting voices coming out of New England, and Hip-Hop at large.
Whereas Anoyd built a reputation for blistering bars in freestyles and cerebral concept songs, “The Mood” is in a more laid-back spirit. However, lyricism and prowess are not compromised. “The trees on the grass cry tears of rainfall / Water from the leaves, so you know that it’s painful / Disdainful, lookin’ at this stain that came off the cloth,” begins the MC who uses nature as a baseline in his imaginative comparisons. Complemented by a dreamy Statik beat, the song is perfect for summertime reflection, whether in the car, on foot, or simply sitting still.
The video captures this sentiment too. Anoyd and Statik enjoy a relaxed, good-spirited afternoon in the city. Meanwhile, the MC cloud-watches from green grass, hits the corner store from the snack, and lounges at home.
In April, Statik Selektah partnered with Bun B and a host of guests (Method Man, Lil Fame, Westside Gunn, Fat Joe, etc.) for TrillStatik, recorded in a single day. Earlier this year, he dropped his first instrumental project, Mahalo (The Hawaii Instrumentals).
