#rewindreview: Statik Selektah ‘Round Trip’ 2023

This was an album that fell a bit under the radar in 2023. Statik Selektah’s ‘Round Trip’ is an assembly of some of the most “truskool” rappers who have earned a name for ACTUAL rapping in the last ten to twelve years. From Joey Bada$$, Rome Street, The Griselda crew, Ab-Soul and Ransom to name a few, “Statik” provides his signature sound to coalesce with these voices meant to carry the torch of HOP music. Although the track listing can look intimidating with twenty songs, this record is only an hour long. Statik Selektah works hard to make sure the album is not monotonous to the listener’s ears by having such a wide variety of rappers involved but also making sure his production provides a wide range of feeling while keeping the overall frequency consistent. ‘Round Trip’ not only provides the more recent collective of wordsmiths but notable veterans as well. Expect to hear the likes of A.Z., members of the Wu-Tang Clan, Bun B., Cormega, M.O.P. and Elzhi. One of the most important veterans on ‘Round Trip’ is Posdnous of De La Soul, as this would mark the first song and feature of the legend after the passing of group member Dave a.k.a. Plug 2. It was only right and with respect that Statik Selektah starts this ‘Round Trip’ off with a dedication to one of HOP music’s most important figures, who we all lost in the year 2023. What did you think of the album?
