Statik Selektah must be feeling generous. Yesterday, the producer teamed up with Joey Bada$$ to deliver three brand new tracks, and today he extends his giving streak. “Man Of The Hour” finds Statik enlisting heavyweight rhymers 2 Chainz and Wiz Khalifa, who slide over the smooth beat with a verse apiece. It’s a nice surprise, especially since 2 Chainz seems to have found a second wind and continues to drop excellent material.
Over lush production that features a saxophone, piano keys, and scratches, Tity Boi kicks things off. “I welcome yours with open arms,” he raps. “I give your lady a throat massage / I put your house in my fourth garage / Perpendicular, ignorant crossed with articulate / Southside, using Ben Franklin for benefits.”
Following a hook from 2 Chainz, Wiz Khalifa emerges with some bars about his favorite pastime. “High as f*ck off the joint that I just rolled,” he raps. “Riding ’round in a cloud of that kush smoke / Put my generation on the good dope / Now we all getting high as D’Angelo notes.”
Overall, it’s a nice vibe – low key stunting over a laid back, luxurious instrumental. Insofar as the track’s MVP, it would appear that there isn’t a singular man of the hour, but three.DOWNLOAD Statik Selektah – Man Of The Hour Ft. 2 Chainz & Wiz Khalifa
