DJ/Producer Statik Selektah is gearing up to release his final compilation project, Lucky 7. It’s hard to imagine a year in hip-hop without an anticipated album from the Showoff Records founder. Since 2007, Statik has blessed our ears with a collection of the finest beats and the dopest MCs, and for the last three years it’s become an annual treat. “I just grew tired of doing the same thing over and over,” Statik told Complex. “I put this one together in under two months and feel like other challenges and goals are out there for me. There is definitely something for everyone on this album.”
With Lucky 7 due out July 7, Complex premieres Statik’s new record “Beautiful Life” featuring longtime collaborators Joey Bada$$ and Action Bronson. The groovy tune serves as the album’s first official single. Statik enlists a wave of talented MCs to give his final solo effort a huge bang. Along with an introduction by Hannibal Buress, features include Royce Da 5’9”, Your Old Droog, Big K.R.I.T., Termanology, Talib Kweli, Cane, Ab-Soul, Rapsody, and many more.
Lucky 7 is currently available for pre-order and tickets for Statik’s album release party at Santos Party House can be copped here. We suggest picking these up sooner rather than later, because there’s no telling how many big names will show out for the celebratory event.
