Over the years Statik Selektah has proved to produce some of the smoothest hip-hop beats out there, with a seemingly enless catalog under his belt. He’s enlisted the talents of Action Bronson and Joey Bada$$, who have both already put out unbelieavable albums this year, and each had Statik produced beats including Joey’s recent “Curry Chicken.” This new track “Beautiful Life” has a classic sounding old school beat with melodic keys, a funky bassline, and a catchy guitar riff sample that goes perfect with these NYC rappers trading relentless verses which adds up to a perfect summer classic. Enjoy.
