Strong Arm Steady & Statik Selektah, Stereotype

Of late, Statik Selektah has been focusing his efforts on creating entire projects with just one artist. He’s teamed with Action Bronson, Reks, Termanology and more since 2011. This time, the Boston-area producer links up with West Coast collective Strong Arm Steady for a new album, Stereotype.

Stereotype allows the talents of both SAS and Statik to shine through for 14 tracks. From the spacey, menacing intro “Truth of the Truth,” it is clear that there is nothing stereotypical about this release. Whether SAS MCs Mitchy Slick, Krondon and Phil Da Agony are spitting true game on the hypnotic “Through the Motions” or just riding Statik’s funkiest breaks on tracks like “Fair Fight,” the pairing works at its core. To help reinforce the joint efforts of the underground West Coast trio and East Coast beatsmith, plenty of solid guests help to structure the release, with Black Hippy, Dom Kennedy, Casey Veggies, Chace Infinite, David Banner, Reks and more along for the ride.

For the follow up to their Arms & Hammers album from last year, Strong Arm Steady choose wisely in linking with Statik Selektah. The industry veterans offer a release that’s thoughtful and well-crafted. This is the good kind of Stereotype. —Calvin Stovall

    A large? REALLY?! LOL

  • balaramesh

    i like 2chainz. but i always thought he say some of the corniest lines out. nevertheless, he is fairly entertaining.

  • BMI

    This is one of the first times i actually agree with you

    When you listen to his music you get the idea he is retarded and stupid but when you see him interviewed he comes across very clever and smart

    It’s sad people are forced to dumb themselves down to become popular

    So to all the lyrical guys if you wanna make it you gotta change and act stupid

    MANNNNN, This aint even right! This album was solid. 2 Chainz been killin it for a good minute and this album just solidified that he’s for real. The beats deserved a XXL, Lyrics XXL, and the Originality XL giving this album a XXL overall. XXL MAG really been slippin lately on these ratings….

    Based on a TRU Story was probably the best Trap Rap Album to come out since Thug Motivation 101….TRUUU!!!!!!
