Statik Kxng was more than just a one-off for Kxng Crooked (p/k/a Crooked I) and Statik Selektah. The Showoff Records/Penalty Entertainment, Long Beach-to-Brooklyn duo exists beyond their early 2016 10-track EP. “Street Music” appears on Mike Epps’ forthcoming Meet The Blacks soundtrack, but stands taller than a typical peel-away track.
While Statik shows off with one of his smoothest Jazz-based beats, Crook’ gets wicked with the wordplay. Here calls back to his days before Slaughterhouse, and some of his midnight maneuvers he’s been making while doing business in New York City. As expected, there are a lot of quoteables over another highlight beat from the MC’s veteran career.
Like Slaughterhouse, it appears that Statik Kxng has lots more in their canon than one LP can hold.
