We get one more gem before Statik Selektah's seventh studio album Lucky 7 releases on 7/7. Joey Bada$$, Big K.R.I.T., Chauncy Sherod, and Hannibal Buress have teamed up with Statik for "In The Wind." All artists deliver on this track. The melody is as uplifting as the words of wisdom both Joey and K.R.I.T. give.
Joey Bada$$ looks to the youth with concern, referencing his little brother, to share what he has learned in hopes to inspire. He raps on his first verse:
You see, the universe is listening every time we speak
What you seek, it seek in you, so practice what you preach
And if I got some type, a voice should be used to teach
My young world, your wildest dreams are within your reach
Big K.R.I.T. does the same with his verse that ends with:
Got to be real, through your heart, to your core
Don't give up on God, when there's so much more in store
Now I don't mean to be preaching, some might say I'm reaching
But Lord knows, somebody gotta teach it
These solid verses flow right into the hook with Chauncy Sherod, "Hoping that we're listening."
You can listen above via SoundCloud or on Amazon where you can pick up Lucky 7 in full. Also if you're in the NYC area tonight, come show love at Statik's Lucky 7 Album Release Party. Tickets for this show, more tour dates and music news can be found on Statik Selektah's Zumic Artist Page.
