Statik Selektah is one of my old friends. In his early years, I personally witnessed his rise within the hip-hop ranks, making the pilgrimage from Boston to New York City as often as possible. offices were raided and the mixtape game was officially declared over, Static began releasing a commercial album with 100% of the production himself.
A catalog of ten studio albums soon to be released under his belt, featuring impressive hard-hitting performances from Wiz Khalifa, Action Bronson, Griselda and more, speaks for itself. . He has created special moments with his musical collaborations over the years. For example, they brought together hip-hop veterans Sean Price and Mac Miller on the same track, dropped a song on 2Chainz, and created an entire album together (release TBD). and of course Trill Statik The legendary Bun B series.

After all, Sweet Chick’s office was transformed into his pop-up recording studio, complete with his lounge, an artist with article-worthy hospitality. For starters, Astor Club has one of his finest rollers on site and has selected VIP guests Blunt or Dooby to roll.
The Astor Club donated half a pound of Fire RS-11.

At some point in this lovely evening, I am completely elated. I mean, I feel great and I’m ready to do some journalism. I’m going to make money here.I made the terrible mistake of interrupting Bun B when he was writing a rhyme. Without hesitation, I approached the Legend and fired the shot. “Where are we in the process?” I asked. he replied with a smirk. Well, maybe we should have played the Curb Your Enthusiasm theme music at that point.
Statik, Dave East and Paul Wall Talk Music
Tired of being welcomed into the studio space, I went to the artist lounge for an interview and grabbed my excellent Sasso to capture a few song breakdowns.
high times: Guys, are you ready to release this album tonight?
Dave East: Statik?! When is this coming out?
Statik: It’s out tonight.
east: No, it’s too fast. Who Mixes Your Music?
Static: It’s me. I mix everything I do.
Tell me about this record you just created.
east: The track you just booed is great. Thanks to Statik Selektah, this was my first time working with him. Statik has my sound. There are very few producers who can embody their sound and rock in. Working with Statik is a layup. Hear the beat and say, “Let’s go!” I turned around to see who the engineer was and Stat was recording me!
Statik: If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself.
Mr. East, what are you smoking?
east: Eastco baby all day long. Eastlatto and Eastpop are coming soon.

When I started, it was a tempo that I’m used to, and it was like a sample that I personally chopped up, so when I heard it, I was like, “Damn, you made this! , I really appreciate him, he is actually one of the real people I met on this trip.
Nems, please tell us about your contribution to this project.
Nems: Bun said to me, Vulgar. Be rude. Statik sent me a beat on my phone. I don’t like writing with crazy people. I like being in the zone So I went to the truck with two bad bitches and wrote a poem in 20 minutes. I made it Bing Bong!
Paul Wall, how was your experience?
Paul Wall: This was a dope experience. Bun B was the first person to come into the studio to help us figure things out when he thought we were on to something. taught me how to be We have been following the leader for a long time. he is the leader I actually missed the first one and ended up riding the Deluxe Edition. So when I saw them doing this, I was like, ‘I gotta be there.

Paul Wall: I was smoking Aster Club pre-rolls all night and someone gave me a 911 pack.
