Statik Selektah is back on the scene this weekend, and he brought Ghostface Killah and Raekwon with him. Titled “Unpredictable,” his new song reunites the Wu-Tang Clan as they channel old-school vibes that have everyone buzzing. Born Patrick Baril, the producer has been active in the music industry since the early 2000s. Even in 2023, he certainly shows no signs of slowing down. Statik has worked with some of the biggest names in the hip-hop world and is known for his traditionalist approach to hip-hop production. This style incorporates classic sounds and samples and can be clearly heard in “Unpredictable.”
As they came up in Staten Island in the 1990s, Wu-Tang Clan asserted themselves as an obvious influence on the music industry. Because of Selektah’s music style, fans are finding the collaboration to be an old-school dream come true. The opening lyrics set the tone for the next three minutes, “Cashmere pea coat/Fella caught a fortune off a c note/Wiggin’ out I’m giving out free smoke/Hater love to doubt Ace.”
Statik Selektah Brings the Wu- Tang Clan Back into the Spotlight
Each member of the Clan gets their own verse, as they delve into explaining what makes each of them so “Unpredictable.” The legendary creatives prove that their quick wit and mic skills are still ahead of the game. Their throwback style matches that of their initial albums from the ’90s, surely bringing back a sense of nostalgia to long-time fans. However, there is still definitely a modern approach to the track that will draw in new listeners.
“Unpredictable” is only a precursor for Statik Selektah’s upcoming project, Round Trip. If the rest of the album is as good as the latest single, then fans can expect an amazing drop. Unfortunately, no official release date has been set yet. Make sure to check back later for any updates on the producer’s forthcoming work.
In spite of all my gold they tried to shut down
I’m still worth millies on the bustdown
So savage, total my average that’s GOAT status
Addicts fiending for these lines, that’s a coke habit
