In a recent interview with AllHipHop.com, Statik gives a hint to which artist could be his next full project collaborator.
"Something that could happen in the future – me and Ab-Soul," reveals Statik. "We’ve been working. I think we’re going to do an Ab-Soul [project]."
The Massachusetts bred production wiz also shares that he would like to get in the lab with a couple of Chicago newcomers and another Black Hippy member.
"I like Chance [The Rapper] a lot. I see him going in a different direction now. I see him doing a lot more soulful s**t which I enjoy. I went to see him in London. He was real dope. I like Vic Mensa. He’s dope," says Statik. "I feel like I’m working with pretty much everybody I want to work with. If anyone’s not on the list of who I’ve worked with, it’s definitely Kendrick [Lamar]."
Statik Selektah released his latest album What Goes Around today (August 19). The project is available on iTunes.
