Statik Selektah’s been gearing to release his upcoming album 8 and has dropped off several notable cuts off the project. Selektah’s brought some major forces in hip hop for the album such as Run The Jewels, Joey Bada$$, Conway, Westside Gunn, Curren$y and more. Today, he drops off grabs Joyner Lucas for the smooth new single, “Don’t Run.”
Statik Selektah comes through with smooth and soulful production for Joyner Lucas to snap on. Lucas comes through with a volatile flow, that has remnants to Kendrick Lamar in some ways, while continuing to prove his versatility as an emcee. Statik Selektah continues to build anticipation for his forthcoming project with this one.
For Joyner, this is the third release he’s had in the past week. He came through last week with “I’m Not Racist” and shortly followed it with his “Gucci Gang” remix.
I’m the truth, I don’t ever tell a white lie
I used to push drugs in the night time
Tryna hit the plug on the WiFi
Wonder how many a wishin’ that I die
