    I know, they’re both everywhere; I predict Statik making big waves, I don’t know why more people didn’t hype “Spell My Name Right”, it was dope.

    ooh, i love me some statik selektah. he might have taken some heat for covering “express yourself,” but “hardcore” kills it on that album.

    I really liked the remake of Express Yourself, actually.
    I mean, Jazzy Jeff had about 3 covers of classic songs on his album, right?
    He’s been doing a lot of production lately. I like when an album’s production is done by just one guy.
