Statik Selektah is bridging the gap between classic rap and the new generation with his stellar new single ‘Keep It Moving’ with Nas & Joey Bada$$. Nas is one of the greatest emcees of all time and Joey is easily one of the best of the past decade. Hearing them link over Statik’s soulful production is a reminder of East Coast hip-hop’s timeless appeal. The two masters trade verses with each showing each other love. Joey closes his verse with an homage to Nas rapping, “‘Cause it’s a hassle gettin’ caught up in the Devil’s lasso/And that’s what a wise man once told me/I got a lot of love and respect for my OGs,” a clear reference to ‘The World Is Yours.’ Nas returns the love as his verse caps off with, “Who would have knew I would rock them events? I rock with my young Gs, that’s just common sense (Sense).” Statik let’s the beat ride with powerful female vocals and choice cuts to give it an anthemic golden era vibe.
