Statik Selektah Premieres Two New Prodigy Songs “Mystic” and “Live From Bushwick”
Statik Selektah let a few new Prodigy joints go during his Showoff radio show, both of which were produced, at least in part, by Alchemist.
On "Mystic," P raps, "You are now listening to the sounds of / A God in the flesh, my lineage is ancient / I come from beyond any place you could imagine / In yo' imagination, shorty was my spaceship / It took her nine months to get me here / Goodness gracious, great balls of fire / My star got six points, so I burn brighter / Than any pentagram on Hollywood's sidewalk / I'm much too hot, you cannot cool me off."
The Mobb Deep rapper continues, "Put on some real tough shit that I could rock to / To write the illest words you ever could bop to / I live the illest life you ever could have / So much joy I laugh, so much pain I laugh."
Later on, Prodigy and Big Twins record their verses live on the air for "Live From Bushwick," rapping over an unreleased collaborative beat from Alchemist and Statik. On the track, Prodigy raps, "This is corporate espionage, white collar crime / Brown paper bag, skin gangsta, I’m / A paper soldier, which means I kill / For these green rectangles / Hundred dollar bills."
Prodigy's upcoming project, Hegelian Dialect, is coming soon. In case you missed it, be sure to check out Prodigy's track "Beast With It" from the upcoming Marvel movie, Black Panther. He raps, "Pay attention, this is timeless art/We made this for all yall/I make my own rules, I don’t follow, I shot call/We do this for the underprivileged and the outsider/Put your hands up, we gon take you higher."
