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
