    Product Details

    Summary

    With two production showcase albums in just one year, Statik Selektah runs the risk of spreading himself thin, but there's no evidence of that on the prime What Goes Around. From the title track/ hypeman opener to the brilliant, Beach Boys-borrowing closer "God Knows" with MCs Bun B, Jared Evan, and Pos from De La Soul, this scattered, roulette wheel-spin of an album offers club cuts, throwbacks and sullen street numbers, all of top quality. The flow of it all isn't perfect, but the short run-time for the tracks and the mixtape style of butting one cut right to the next make this feel like a purposeful whirlwind. Choice numbers include "The Thrill Is Back," where the dream team of Styles P and Talib Kweli reminisce about their early careers, while "The Imperial" finds Action Bronson, Royce Da 5'9, and Black Thought punching hard over one of Statik's fierce soundtrack-music-meets-Gospel cut-ups. Snoop Dogg sounds like a Don on the aptly titled "All the Way (Pimp Hop)," while "Carry On" is the great experience of Joey Badass and Freddie Gibbs trading lines over what could be an old Digable Planets beat. "Down Like This" squanders none of its street superstar power - Sheek Louch, Pharoahe Monch, and Crooked I - and offers an infectious chorus to boot, then Boldy James admits he "should have played first base" because he can't let anything slide on the cold and cunning "Something to Cry For." The highlights continue, and come from many different styles of underground hip-hop, so put Statik somewhere between Tony Touch and the Alchemist on the short list of producer/ DJs who also offer solid albums.

    Comment: I'm not sure if this Static Selectah thing is a big joke or not. With people co-signing him, him releasing albums with my some of my favorite emcees or wtf is going on. I feel like this is some giant elaborate prank. The level of mediocrity this guy has in his production is so intense that the only logical conclusion I can come to is this is either a dream I'm in or a terrible joke. I grew up listening to everything hip hop from Public Enemy, Eric B and Rakim, Ice T, everything Gang Sarr, into the 2000s with blackstar the early dilated stuff etc etc and so on and was hooked to this amazing music. then something happened. pete rock became irrelevant. d premier became boring and predictable and statik selectah became relevant. but when I listen to this side by side to the great or even decent albums of years gone by I cant find a single statik selectah release that I dont skip through almost the entire album. sh*tty mixing, tinny drums no bottom, sh*tty sample selection and use lacking all creativity. I feel statik got a co sign from these guys and you all jumped on it becasue these guys werent delivering. statik sucks plain and simple. if he came up in the prime of the " golden age" or the Boom bap prime. he would probably leave the room the same way p.m. dawn left the stage thanks to krs one. so how can any of you settle for this mediocrity and call it classic this or even any form of amazing. its boring predictable, 3rd rate music. and its funny that this guy has a "team" that produces for him. and it still somehow gets past the gate. with the availaility of computer production and pro tools procucing has become easier and it seems because of that alot of producers have become lazier. I will never accept statik selectah into the fraternity of hip hop. he is a joke. this music is trash. out of the numerous albums he has released I may find a few songs that I can tolerate. all of you need to take a step back and realize that this is the guy you have elected to ruin the standard of a culture. and create regurgutated trash that is so forgettable that I cant even name the albums even after actually listen to ALL of them. in the age of the computer revoloution and sites like bandcamp where theres literally millions of hungry artists and producers that look up to the same producers you and this fat slob of a producer does. how is it possible you have even given this stuff a chance after listening to anything he has done? cmon sons! sh*ts weak. quit playin yaself!

    Comment: "Carry On" is the only joint on the entire album that I like. Not that the album was wack, just kind of bland and no replay value aside from "Carry On."

    Comment: The Muthaf*ckin Man...I agree Marco Polo is up there with Statik but not better, Illmind has had some nice beats but his beats on the new Mobb Deep album was very down south and didn't suit P & Hav at all, I agree with Khrysis, he along with 9th are quality producers, a big Jamla fan, DJ Spinna is a legend in my opinion but Just Blaze is soooo overated like Dr Dre and Oddisee isnt better, very boring beats. I agree about P-money being dope too, never heard of him before the album with Buckshot! Statik is still the main producer these days, he's like a Preemo trainee and you can't go wrong with that:-)

    Comment: Lpac…Yeah, Statik is making boom-bap beats like he always does, but that doesn't mean they're dope. Remember, I did say a few tracks on here are really good. But the other 15 or so are just "eh." Better producers than Statik: Newer dudes: Marco Polo, !llmind…these two sh*t on Statik. Khrysis?? Kyo Itachi and his crew. Def Dee. Damu. J-Zone (although he's been taking it easy for the last few years). Dude's who have been around: Alchemist, Preemo, DJ Spinna, EL-P, and if Just Blaze would start makin sh*t again, he would be RULING. sh*t, even Oddisee is better. Production has been the problem with hip hop for the last few years, but it's slowly getting better. Oh yeah, and P-Money (dude who did the album with Buckshot. Plus his own album on Duck Down in 2012 is DOPE!)

    Comment: To The muthaf*ckin man actually I have got a clue about hiphop, a big clue in fact, growing up in the early nineties as a teenager listening to hip hop on my cassette player and am now a collecter of over 800 hip hop cds starting from 1988 to now so I think I've got a bit of a clue right? Anyway, Statik produces nothing but pure hip hop so what more do you f*cking want? Tell me who's producing better now in hip hop than him, he gives you that old school feel with a new school twist and it works every time, have you not heard his one producer one MC albums? This album is beautiful jazzy boom bap with all the MCs except Snoop bringing their A game. If it wasn't for Showoff records, Jamla or Pro Era, I'd still just be listening to 90s stuff because pretty much everything else sucks badly.

    Comment: I'm not even jokin', I'm starting to think most of you in the comment section are seriously RETARDED. I'm being truly honest when I say, that some of the things I read, are the EXACT opposite of the truth and how I feel. Some dude says "Not one filler"…BRO, do you just have incredibly sh*t taste or do you not know much about hip hop?? I literally counted at the most 3 tracks that were BANGIN'. All the rest were f*cking average as f*ck for a guy who is supposed to be one of the "best" right now. Statik needs to just DJ. THAT'S IT. His beats, for the most part, f*cking suck nuts. How the f*ck are you supposed to be a good producer if only 1 out of 30 beats you make is a banger?? I've continuously tried to give you chances, and every album gets worse and worse. I'm talking production here. Not about the eight million random features you got on your albums. You are a GARBAGE producer. And it's mind-boggling to see all you f*ckin morons throwing out 4s and 5s like it's nothing. You're f*cking stupid!

    Comment: This is the worst use of great talent on an album I have seen in a while. I've never seen such a lineup of great rappers, with the worst beats. This album made me want to fall asleep. He should never be allowed to make another album again.

    Comment: This is another solid release from Statik and crew. Really tight production with those east coast jazzy loops - a real class act. The emcees hit this out the park, great guests, diversity, bars/flow all on point! Dope.

    Comment: This is without a doubt album of the year, not one filler track, Statik's production is at its best, love the jazzy boom bap feel, the guest MCs all bring it, classic. I can't wait for the next Showoff release, keeping that real hip hop alive.

    Comment: Quality record. Statik is extremely consistent, always with dope features. It's nice to see a sample heavy producer making a big name for himself nowadays. This album is better than 95 percent of what's coming out. But his joints just need a little SOMETHING; I don't know I can't put my finger on it. Still a hot record.

    Comment: Layed back boom bap, loops are pretty dope, I can't front. I'm not a fan of Statik to be honest, usually something missing from his beats but I'm pleasantly surprised here. All smooth sampled loops, nice breaks, dope emcee line up. I don't think it'll have much replay value though as the songs all sound similar, but that remains to be seen. I think this is his best effort yet.

    Comment: The production was horrible, not enough boom bap plus some of the lyrics were sloppy. Album is great! I bought it from the UGHH Store on Huntington. I've been listening to Statik since he was DJ-ing on Salem State College radio. He is one of the best DJ/ producers in the game today. Great features, good flow and perfect time to release the album.

    Comment: I don't even need to listen to this CD to know it's going to be quality hip hop. Statik Selektah always delivers that authentic production with real lyricist. Hell yeah I'm copping this joint just off the strength of all his previous work.

    Comment: @Adam, yeah if it isn't broke why indeed fix it, SS albums are hit and miss with me, if I can listen to it straight through then it's a winner. Previous albums always have good cuts on it but sometimes have these jiggy computer tracks thrown in that ruins the flow for me. This here dumps the syths and gives us some nice hard boom bap treats right through. Considering SS always jams it full with 20 tracks, consistency is a hard thing to do and he does it on this one. Same ole rappers? This is slammed with a great lineup with some returning favorites, if you want some unknowns then look elsewhere brotha, I haven't heard Styles P, B-Real and N.O.R.E. sound better in a while so I'll take it, solid project 4 ½ stars.

    Comment: Same 'ol Statik Selektah, I mean if it ain't broke don't fix it right? I love what he represents but it's time for him to branch out or try something a lil' bit different. New year, same album w/ the same core rappers on it (Term, Sean P, Action, M.O.P., Styles, Talib, etc.). I'm not saying this album sucks but it's getting tiresome. I wonder if he ever thought about doing a collab album w/ another producer (kinda like how he co-prod w/ ALC on that Pro Era joint.) ALC has re-invented himself over the past 4 to 5 years and I feel that Apollo Brown is starting to w/ his work on GFK and .38. I think it's time SS follows suit, and please SS, Ransom and Wais P are not tight. Quit wasting time w/ them washed up mixtape rappers from the early 2000s.

    Comment: I think Statik is one of the best out. I also like M-Phazes a lot. Just has that feel good soul music with the classic boom bap. Crisp production as well, this sh*t has a real quality sound. Alarm clock is a sick track - cop it now. It seems that the emcees always feel Statik's sh*t too, always has fire verses no bullsh*t here.
