1982 (Statik Selektah & Termanology) feat. Bun B & Masspike Miles - You Should Go Home (Video)
Statik Selektah is probably my favorite "underground" producer of the moment and has been consistently doing his thing for a minute now, delivering gritty East Coast styled Hip-Hop production, lacing an array of artists, ranging from street cats like M.O.P. & Sean Price to backpack faves like Consequence & Wale. His albums haven't been chart toppers but he's managed to keep the torch burning for the Champion hoodie/Timbaland crowd as well as the Nag Champa/licorice chewstick heads and for that alone he gets props over here.
On the other hand, I've never been the biggest fan of Boston rapper, Termanology. He's a straight forward lyricist & while he's gotten better over the years (Last year's Time Machine: Hood Politics VI is underrated), I never really looked at him as anything other then an "underground" cat with alot of good relationships & better production.
On their first full collaboration album as the group, 1982, both Statik & Term deliver what their known for, beats that are heavy on the boom bap & rhymes that'll make you run it back like Darren Sproles. But on this joint, (featuring the Trill OG, Bun B & fellow Beantown crooner Masspike Miles) Term & Statik flip the script & do the unexpected...a song for the radio. Peep...
