Statik Selektah Ft. Joey Bada$$, Nas & Gary Clark Jr. – “Keep It Moving”
Statik Selektah recruits two of New York City’s finest for a brand new loosie. Statik Selektah released the first single ahead of his upcoming album The Balancing Act, which is slated to feature appearances from Dave East, Method Man, Griselda, and 2 Chainz.
He came out swinging with “Keep It Moving,” enlisting verses from Joey Bada$$ and Nas, who bless Selektah’s joyful beat with classic New York bars. It also marks the first time the two rappers have been on a song together, bridging the gap between two generations of NYC hip hop.
With additional instrumentation from Texas guitarist Gary Clark, Jr, the track feels like a cross between the most musical moments in church and a block party freestyle.
- Possessed by Marcus Garvey, the vessel, the body
- Ancestors inside me, I’m starting the insurrection
- The pope’s blessings upon me couldn’t even calm me, protection
- Come from prayers, my question, why they try to play us? I’m guessing
- It’s cause I call fundamentals, they might offend you
- And when I wore my fatigues, what I got into
- On the corner, had power, was a trapping shorty
- Making plays every hour, I did it for the glory
