Statik Selektah drafts Black Thought, Royce Da 5’9, and Action Bronson to kick hardcore lyrics over some jazzstastic and soulful production. “The Imperial” is nothing if it is not the verbal display of talents that mere mortals cannot possess. Black Thought’s verse is everything I’ve been trying to tell fools for years. People look at me crazy when I mention his name when asked who’s the greatest. Sue me, but I dare you to prove me wrong. His resume is just as extensive as anyone you can retort with.
There is a world that I want to live in, and that world is painted by two verbal artistes. Their names? Skipp Coon and Satchel Page. Their occupations? To make you think. Their tools? Impeccable timing, superior brainwaves, and unmatched wit. Their location? The People’s Republic of Jafrica.
It is said that there will be those who will lead the people from darkness into the light. I believe two of those leaders to be Satchel Page and Skipp Coon. Fortunately I can show you better than I can tell you, so listen up to this weeks episode of the aptly titled Husbands, Artists, and Fathers Podcast or as it is more commonly known, WHAF Radio. Musical backdrop provided by one of the Republic’s most respected and authentic disc jockeys, DJ JoNasty. Deuces.
