The Notorious B.I.G. "Bastard Child" (Prod. by Statik Selektah)

Statik Selektah sent out "Bastard Child" ahead of his IG Live tonight, a track that features TWO unreleased verses from The Notorious B.I.G. over Statik’s own soulful production. The verses are alleged to trace back to creative director Joe Lyons, who posted to his Instagram, "I’m excited to announce that on May 14th, here on IG Live, I will be doing a session of my most rare Biggie Smalls aka The Notorious B.I.G. demos and freestyles. I have one of the most complete collections of his recordings that exists and I will be playing early versions that many people have never heard before. If you are a huge fan and collector of Biggie’s music you likely have heard most of these tracks, but tune in for a trip down memory lane to the early 90s when NYC hip-hop ruled." Statik also blasted off a version of "Mo Money Mo Problems" from the original studio session, which included a dope verse from Jadakiss, as well as unreleased tracks from Nas, Sean Price, Big Pun and lots more! A true DJ/producer and student of the game, it's no surprise Statik has been holding down IG for the real heads during this quarantine. Pick up a copy of his latest merch, "Statik Selektah was my DJ for the 2020 quarantine," on his Showoff website!
