publish date: 2018-03-21
Brooklyn, NY – Veteran producer Statik Selektah has worked with everyone from Nas and Talib Kweli to Action Bronson and KXNG Crooked over the course of his extensive career. Simply put, the Roc Nation affiliate knows his way around a studio.
On Tuesday (March 20), after he popped up in an Instagram video with 2 Chainz, the new music featured in the clip was labeled by some as ''90s-inspired.' Subsequently, the Massachusetts native aired his grievances about the current state of Hip Hop on Twitter.
'Why is anything that's not a synth with 200 hi hats a second considered '90s or old school'??!' he wrote. 'Y'all gotta stop that shit. Bad for hip hop. Y'all don't do it to Kendrick and them. Don't do it to the east.'
