Statik Selektah 'Bird's Eye View'

Statik Selektah Bird's Eye View Raekwon Joey Bada$$ Black Thought

'Bird's Eye View' was on Statik Selektah's 2013 production album, 'Extended Play' - it features Raekwon, Joey Bada$$ and Black Thought. Exhale. All came with solid verses, but Black Thought stole the show on the 3rd verse. Knowing Statik, he knew he had one immediately, and it ended up being my favorite track of the year, beating out 'Chum' by Earl Sweatshirt. Statik Selektah has put out consistent production albums since around '07, but has been active in hip-hop for many years prior to that. We've had some fun BBQs over the years and he's someone I'm really glad to see winning. Add this one back in rotation!
