If you've followed Statik Selektah's career, you're well aware that consistency is one of his strongest qualities. It's why the veteran producer from Massachusetts can drop seven albums in less than a decade and still be on top of his game.
It turns out, though, that Statik will be switching up his Modus operandi following the release of his upcoming album, Lucky 7. "I just grew tired of doing the same thing over and over," Statik said of his compilation projects. "I put this one together in under two months and feel like other challenges and goals are out there for me. There is definitely something for everyone on this album."
That includes "Beautiful Life," the first single off Lucky 7 that finds Statik linking up with two of his closest rap pals, Action Bronson and Joey Bada$$. The record features Statik's signature throwback production and a funky melody that will have you doing a mean two-step.
Statik Selektah's Lucky 7 drops July 7 on Showoff Records/Duck Down Music Inc. The full tracklist can be viewed below. Along with Bronson and Bada$$, guests include Mick Jenkins, Ab-Soul, Big K.R.I.T., Rapsody, Bun B, and many more.
Lucky 7 will be available for pre-order tonight at midnight. Statik already has an album release show locked in for July 6 at Santos House Party in NYC, and you can expect the producer to bring out some special guests. Tickets for that show are available here.
