On Friday (Dec. 8), prolific East Coast hip-hop producer Statik Selektah released his eighth studio album, ‘8.’ The 18 track LP showcases the rap veteran’s range as a producer and a DJ and includes an epic array of high profile collaborations including 2 Chainz, Wiz Khalifa, Action Bronson, Joey Badass, The Lox, Westside Gunn, Conway, and late rappers Prodigy and Sean Price.
Accompanying the release is a music video for The Lox-featured song, “But You Don’t Hear Me Though,” a standout from the LP. In the clip, the Yonkers, NY rappers deliver their thought-provoking bars while hanging out in a studio. The visual also includes cameos from DJ Premier, Joey Bada$$, Action Bronson, Conway and more.
Born in Lawrence, MA in 1982, Statik was exposed to production equipment at a young age and by middle school he was already DJing school events. At age 14, he purchased his first set of turntables and a mixer, starting to work clubs and parties, making a name for himself in the East Coast hip-hop scene. Eventually, Statik created his own record label Show Off Records and has continued to expand his accomplishments, producing for A-list artists such as Eminem, J. Cole, and Nas.
