Statik Selektah and Reks To Release Three-Part Album, ‘Straight No Chaser’
The acclaimed DJ/producer continues his line of unconventional releases, this time teaming up with labelmate Reks.
Statik Selektah took to Twitter last week to reveal that he’s currently working with Boston native, Reks. The duo, he said, is gearing up to release a three-part collaborative album, with each installment containing five tracks.
“[In] the lab with Reks,” Statik Selektah wrote. “[Me] and him got [a] 3part album, ‘Straight No Chaser’ dropping soon, 5 songs at a time. Stay tuned.”
Straight No Chaser is slated to follow in a string of non-conventional records to come from Statik Selektah and his ShowOff Records camp. Most recently, the producer worked with California rapper Freddie Gibbs to create an EP within 24 hour hours, later releasing Lord Giveth, Lord Taketh Away digitally on his ShowOff imprint. In addition, Statik is also currently working on a mixtape with La Coka Nostra’s Slaine, titled State of Grace. It’s currently scheduled for a release within the next couple of weeks.
Reks recently released his third solo album, Rhythmic Eternal King Supreme (R.E.K.S.), in March of 2011, which featured production from Statik Selektah in addition to numerous well-known beatsmiths.
More information on their collaborative effort as it becomes available.
