Statik Selektah Gives A Track-By-Track Break Down Of ‘Extended Play’
3. “East Coast” ft. N.O.R.E. & Lil Fame
Statik Selektah: “The song is more like East Coast pride. N.O.R.E. was talking about how when the whole East Coast/West Coast [rivalry] was going down, he was one of the only ones who spoke up. Fame talks about what if back in the day, if him and Danze went to Death Row. It’s like a playful song, but it still reminds you that we are still the East Coast. We still got the hardest shit.
I worked with N.O.R.E.and Lil Fame before. I am in a crew with N.O.R.E. called The Drink Champs. We are turning into alcoholics, but we only have done two songs together. I did a song with him and Bumpy Knuckles. They had a small beef back in the day. It was the first time they ever did a song together. I was happy to do that. That was a couple of years ago. This is the first time he did something for one of my albums. Fame—that’s family. I’ve done a bunch of records with M.O.P.”
