DOWNLOAD: Statik Selektah - The Thrill Is Gone ft. Styles P & Talib Kweli

I’ll take Statik next to any producer today. After the album he did with Saigon, All in a Day’s Work, I don’t need to hear any more to confidently say this man has found his spot (pause?).

With the title of the song, I thought we were going to hear a B.B. King sample or interpolation, but that’s not the case (it’s a Biggie sample on the hook). The beat is smooth as hell, and Styles and Talib both give two strong verses.

(I’m in a rush right now, I’ll post the streaming version later)

I didn’t think I’d ever hear a Soulja Boy sample on a Saigon or Statik track, but I like it.

Here are two pretty decent cuts from the new collabo album between Statik Selektah and Saigon. The two made an entire album together in 1 day, as you may have heard by now. If these were made in 24 hours, maybe Saigon should do more 24 hour sessions. The album, All in a Day’s Work, will be be released next Tuesday (March 17) on Amalgam Digital, as a digital-only release.

This album, along with his other upcoming street album, Warning Shots 2, are the two projects signed onto Amalgam Digital, contrary to what had previously been said about Saigon being a new official Amalgam artist. The big Greatest Story Never Told LP is still homeless, from what I’ve last heard.

I don’t care if I’m late with this, because I like this track, and I think you should hear it. And damn Statik’s production has come a long way too.

Usually when I see these tracks with a million emcees, I’m less than interested for some weird reason. Even if they’re all dope emcees, I always think mega-billed tracks are gimmicky these days and not done for the right reasons. This one definitely is different. It’s forcing me to eat my words. You can tell it was put together and crafted with these dudes in mind. Good one, Statik.

Cop his album next week, on the 21st.
