With his upcoming 8 set to drop on December 8th, Statik Selektah continues to release the project one single at a time. Having previously dropped singles with Run The Jewels, 2 Chainz & Wiz Khalifa, Joey Bada$$ & G Eazy, Juelz Santana and more, it's a wonder that Statik still has any heat left over. And yet he continues to impress, dropping off another banger called "Slept To Death," featuring Curren$y and Cousin Stizz. The laid back track features some saxophone courtesy of Utril Rhaburn, while both emcees trade some chill bars, calling back to the days of smoke-filled jazz clubs.
"Throw up a jet life or peace sign, and then an Eastside, stare in the mirror turn the lights out and say my name three times," raps Curren$y, "and I appear through the smoke, Andretti, Andretti, Andretti in the Nissan." And while Curren$y sets the bear high as hell, Cousin Stizz holds his own, sounding comfortable alongside one of hip-hop's underrated veterans (although let's be honest, Curren$y killed this). Be sure to keep an eye out for Statik's 8, which sounds like it'll be a hip-hop purist's dream come true.
Throw up a jet life or peace sign, and then an Eastside,
Stare in the mirror turn the lights out and say my name three times
And I appear through the smoke
Andretti, Andretti, Andretti in the Nissan
