Statik Selektah Recruits Ab-Soul, Jon Connor, Logic for ‘Alarm Clock’ [Audio]
Statik Selektah never seems to have a problem assembling a great lineup of artists for his records. That trend continues on his latest single, ‘Alarm Clock,’ featuring three of hip-hop’s brightest young stars: Ab-Soul, Jon Connor and Logic.
Statik crafts a vibrant beat with a summertime vibe and uses a Supremes’ sample as Ab-Soul, Jon Connor and Logic deliver some impressive verses. While all three MCs do this one justice, Ab-Soul’s opening salvo is particularly memorable.
Ab raps, “It only makes sixth sense / They sleep on the creator of pineal gland / No offense taken, I’m just racing, the savior of man / Crucifix, positive, addition, it’s all the same / Giving and getting head is cool, but what is it if you don’t use your brain / That’s one plane, negative subtraction but still a balance / If dyslexic then play this s— backwards /
Uh, the black lip captain of the ship / When you dividing the pie, rats come, it’s all math son / So is it really, really real or do you need to shapen up my G / I’m a tree, you know peace be still / The irony of my movement, they eyeing my every movement / The pioneer of the future, another Statik selection with a dab of perfection.”
‘Alarm Clock’ appears on Statik Selektah’s new album, ‘World Goes Around,’ due out Aug. 19 on Showoff Music/Duck Down Records. The LP will features guest appearances by the likes of Bun B, Snoop Dogg, Dilated Peoples, Black Thought, Pharoahe Monch, Heltah Skeltah, Freddie Gibbs, Posdnuos, B-Real and Joey Bada$$, among others.
