blame it on Meka December 1, 2015

Hip hop heads rejoiced when KXNG Crooked and Statik Selektah connected to form the duo Statik KXNG. As the two prepare to release their eponymous-titled project on February 12th, 2016 they revealed the first taste from it, “Dead Or In Jail,” they have now dropped a lyrics visual for their Jessica Quintero-gusted single.

Eschewing the typical rap clichés, “Dead Or In Jail” instead utilizes stark images and real-life statistics set against the jazzy backdrop of Statik Selektah and the vivid raps of KXNG Crooked. It’s a bleak reminder of what KRS-One reiterated to CNN; that the myriad of societal ails and injustices will sadly plague this country with seemingly no end in sight.
