Last night, Statik Selektah held a listening session for his upcoming album ‘Extended Play’, which drops on June 18th. We got a chance to sit down with him and chop it up for an informative interview. First off, he talks about how the first single ‘Birds Eye View’ with Raekwon, Black Thought and Joey Bada$$ came together. He also reveals that Busta Rhymes was supposed to be on the record. Then, he talks about the new single ’21 & Over’ featuring Sean Price and Mac Miller. He then gives us some details about what we can expect from his ‘Extended Play’.

Statik goes on to reveal that he has already spoken to Jay-Z about working together and that it is in the works. He also expresses his desire to collaborate with Kanye West and Eminem. Statik mentions he did a record with Nas for his ‘Life Is Good’ album but it didnt make the cut. He was also supposed to get Scarface on his new album but they didn’t get a chance to record it. He assures us that it will come out in the future.

Finally, Statik gives us some details about his future plans. He will be heading out on the ‘Under The Influence’ tour with Joey Bada$$.
