news / Mac Media press release
Since late in 2009,
Emcee/Producer tandem Statik Selektah and Termanology have
been hard at work on their landmark collaborative album 1982.
Now New York transplants, Statik and Termonology are
Massachusetts natives and have worked together frequently
throughout the last five years—yet 1982 marks their first
full-length project together.
Termanology began making a name for himself with several
highly acclaimed 12" singles. At the onset of 2006, Term’s big
break came when DJ Premier blessed him with one of his
signature, scratch-laden beats.
"Watch How It Go Down" instantly became an underground classic
and with it Termanology thrusted himself onto Hip-Hop's
The conscious hood anthem
garnered the earnest MC tons of praise, landing him in The
Source's "Unsigned Hype" and XXL's "Show and Prove" columns.
On September 30, 2008, he released his debut album, Politics
As Usual, to critical acclaim. Politics As Usual featured
production and appearances from Hip-hop heavyweights such as
Bun B, Prodigy, Freeway, Sheek Louch, The Alchemist, Pete
Rock, Buckwild, Easy Mo Bee & Large Professor.
Establishing his own spot amongst the ranks of East Coast
hip-hop's seminal figures, DJ/producer Statik Selektah
utilized his turntabling skills and ingenuity in PR and
promotions to break some of the region's most promising
artists, bearing his own influence on the national mixtape
circuit. As a producer he has worked with Talib Kweli, Bun B,
Styles P, Consequence, Freeway, M.O.P. and Jadakiss (among
many others); and most importantly, the DJ became a
major-player on the mixtape circuit as his releases with Nas,
Q-Tip, John Legend, and Saigon received major accolades and
write-up’s. Statik dropped his first LP, Spell My Name Right
in 2007, Stick 2 the Script in 2008 and his third full-length
solo-project, 100 Proof: The Hangover in 2010.
Statik has revealed that 1982 will be released on October 26,
2010 through Showoff Records, in conjunction with Term's ST.
Records and famed Boston underground Hip Hop imprint---Brick.
The 1st leak from the album is the grimey headnodder “Goin
Back.” The record has been getting rave reviews on the net,
radio & streets alike and features legendary West Coast act
Xzibit (MTV’s Pimp My Ride) & “The Hustler” Cassidy. A video
is in the works for “Goin Back” with director John Colombo,
who recently shot visuals the for official single off the 1982
album - “You Should Go Home,” which features “Mr. 5 Mics” Bun
B & Maybach Music crooner Masspike Miles. The video for “You
Should Go Home” is out now and the single is available on
Itunes & All digital stores.
With the release date for the project now on the horizon,
Termanology laments on the project named after his and
Statik’s mutual year of birth – “I'm excited, the album is
finally here and hip-hop is in desperate need of an album like
this right now.” Other album highlights include Term spazzing
out on the 100 bar intro “The World Renown” and linking up
with legendary MC’s Inspectah Deck, Styles P & M.O.P.
As an added bonus, Statik Selektah has also revealed that the
duo will release a free Bonus EP of exclusive material to
those who provide proof of purchase of the album.
