Statik Selektah - Stick 2 The Script
Statik Selektah represents for Boston, although he currently lives in the NYC. He's dropped easily thirty mixtapes in recent years, with increasingly bigger guest spots and drops, plus mixes with Nas and Saigon. Stick 2 The Script pushes the envelope even further, scoring a State Property reunion cut, interludes from Q-Tip and a rare appearance from The Mad Rapper (rare, as in not well done). There's also an intriguing appearance by Black Rob. I was under the impression he was a guest of the state, and a quick check confirmed that, but it's nice to hear BR. Stay up! There's a street banger with M.O.P and Jadakiss plus good verses from rap phenom Joell Ortiz. There are also a lot of decent rappers on this comp who would do well to get off Jay-Z's dick. Like really. Listening, its no wonder Jay has all the DL rumors. I had to check twice to make sure a couple times that it wasn't ol' Mr. Overrated himself on some of the tracks. All in all, though, Stick 2 The Script is some good shit. I'd pick it up. It's got a nice mix of new school guys and old heads and he doesn't shout his name every ten seconds. You can get it here. Check out his tourdates (for Red and Meth) at the social networking interface here. Support your local DJ!
