Same horn sample DJ Premier used on Blaq Poet’s “Don’t Give A Fuccc,” but it goes in a totally different direction. Premo flipped it mad militant while Statik Selektah skews it nostalgic for an appropriate backdrop to AZ’s street knowledge. Off Doe or Die: 15th Anniversary Edition, out November 23. Also peep the iTunes bonus track for Statik and Termanology’s 1982 album featuring Freddie Gibbs.
I saw Mr. Selektah during CMJ and as always, he told me about half a dozen albums he’s working on. I’m still waiting for his album with Bahamadia.
