Hip-Hop Producer Statik Selektah Drops New Album "8" Ft. Joey Bada$$, Run The Jewels, G-Eazy, Action Bronson & More

Statik Selektah album

Legendary producer and DJ Statik Selektah released his eighth studio album 8 today, and the list of features is giant. Over the 17 tracks, he has recruited Run the Jewels, 2 Chainz, Action Bronson, Joey Bada$$, G-Eazy, and many, many more.

Statik Selektah built up anticipation for this album by releasing "Put Jewels on It (feat. Run the Jewels)" and "Ain't a Damn Thing Change (feat. G-Eazy & Joey Bada$$), and the rest of the album does not disappoint. He still knows how to create a classic hip-hop beat that sounds incredibly fresh, and it's great to hear some of these rappers over something different for them. Some of the highlights include the contemplative track with No Malice, who was in the group The Clipse with Pusha T, and the throwback banger with Raekwon and Royce da 5'9. 

The whole album is worth listening to for its standout beats, and some of the lesser known names really shine on this. Enjoy!

Rapper & Producer Russ Shares Chill New Song "Lean On You"

Russ Lean On You

Rapper and producer Russ has quite the breakout year. He experienced a quick rise once he hit his stride after years of grinding and putting out music. Now as we approach the end of the year he's shared another single "Lean On You."

Russ delivered an impressive debut album There's Really A Wolf earlier this year and has stayed busy since with a handful of different singles and even a sold-out Red Rocks show. This time around he's put his producing, rapping and singing on full display. The extra smooth instrumental on "Lean On You" sets the stage for Russ to switch off between singing and rapping on his hybrid verses. Stay tuned for more from the talented artist and enjoy!

Kayzo Drops Wild Dubstep Remix Of DJ Snake’s “A Different Way” Feat. Lauv

Kayzo DJ Snake

Los Angeles-based producer Kayzo is back today with yet another bass-infused release. This young artist has consistently caught our ears throughout 2017 with his unabashedly heavy signature, sharing wild releases like “WHISTLE WARS” and taking risks on slower tracks like “Without You” with Slander. For today’s remix he took on one of DJ Snake’s biggest releases of the year, “A Different Way” featuring Lauv. Needless to say, Kayzo gave this one the bass-fueled treatment we never knew it needed.

For those not familiar with Kayzo, the lead-in of this remix would probably trick you into thinking he flipped “A Different Way” into a more relaxed track. The first 30 or so seconds are subtle with chill guitar chords and steadily building percussion. This dives into a downright filthy drop that only Kayzo could pull off, with relentless pulsing bass and a raucous kick. The stark juxtaposition between the drop and the intro/bridge was a well-played move, making the mood of each stand out even more. Check out the remix below and enjoy!
