Every so often, Hip-Hop fans receive a track so powerful that it creates a feeling similar to that of the holy ghost. Applaud Statik Selektah, for he delivers one with a song titled “Bird’s Eye View,” featuring Raekwon, Joey Bada$$, and Black Thought.
The line up alone is enough to make folks implode. Pressing play only reaffirms your greatest imagination, as each MC displays a wizardry with the words. Bars are ample and there isn’t a chorus in sight.
Spoiler alert: Thought disembowels the soulful cut, rapping “It’s the elephant in the room, created by a collision of the sun and the moon/ My sonogram was an image of a gun in the womb, that was soon to doper than hero!n in a spoon.”
“Bird’s Eye View” will appear on Statik’s Extended Play, set to realease June 18. Purchase the jam on iTunes at midnight, and listen to the record in full below.
