“Statik KXNG” is scheduled to be released on Penalty Entertainment.
Inspired by the recent success of DJ Premier and Royce Da 5’9, KXNG CROOKED (f.k.a. Crooked I) and Statik Selektah have announced plans to collaborate on a full-length album release.
The newly formed emcee/producer duo made the announcement earlier this weekend on ShowOff Radio. The album, tentatively titled Statik KXNG, is apparently set to be released on Penalty Entertainment, a label that recently released CROOKED’s fellow Slaughterhouse rapper Joell Ortiz’s latest album and has a catalog that dates back to the 1990s.
“We got something we got to announce,” Statik Selektah said on the radio show. “Me and CROOKED have been talking for a while, and I was like, ‘You know what, we should just do a project. Why not?”
“It makes good sense,” CROOKED chimed in. “To be honest, Hip Hop is going in a great direction. We just got to make our contribution. I’m excited for this project. It’s gonna be something dope.”
CROOKED added of the release, “[it’s] West meets East. East meets West. Two people at the top of their game at what they doing. We involving a lot of shit out there but we’re putting everything down to bring a dope project to the people. We won’t disappoint. Straight up.”
