Over the years, Statik Selektah has put me on to numerous artists that I may have overlooked if it weren’t for his co-sign. Not because the talent wasn’t there. But at the time of this post there’s approximately 8,989,242 rappers claiming to be dope, and I’ve only got two ears (and one that actually functions) to listen.
Enter Quadir Lateef, a Buffalo-bred emcee reppin’ Ruff Ryders, who will be releasing a joint EP with Statik in the near future. And for his introduction to the DopeHouse, he gets extra busy on the project’s first single, “Exorcism.”
Seriously, this shit is RAW!
Check out the Clifton Bell-directed video below and be on the lookout for Quadir and Statik’s upcoming Ugly Face EP, dropping later this year via RR/ShowOff.
If you like what you hear, I’ve also included Q’s Voice Of Biggie, Mind of Malcolm 2.0 project from last year.
