Hear an unreleased song from Statik Selektah's "Lucky 7" sessions.

Statik Selektah's Lucky 7released in July, is undoubtedly one of the most slept-on albums of the year. This afternoon, Statik shared "Couldn't Tell" feat. Black Thought, a song recorded during the Lucky 7 sessions that somehow didn't make the album cut.

"Couldn't Tell" features a silky Statik Selekt boom bap drum groove and the sort of nuanced, *very rare* sampling only someone like Statik could successfully execute -- Chipmunk'd vocals and ominous piano loop tastefully deployed to compliment Black Thought's timeless Philly flow.

ICYMI, Lucky 7 is straight stacked... Joey Bada$$, Ab-Soul, Big K.R.I.T., Action Bronson, Styles P, Your Old Droog, Bun B, Mick Jenkins,Royce Da 5'9", Kirk Knight, and more. Scope that.

Quotable Lyrics

Before cellular phones were educated
And captured actually before photographs that never faded
A DJ got a request to play the favorite record on the radio of his ex
But never played it and
Though the lady was vexed and devastated
She took a yoga lesson and stretched to meditate it
It then created a curse that's dedicated to the most sacred bitch ass nigga she ever dated
