Stat and the entire "Aftermath Conglomerate" chillin out in the studio and screwin around.  Good to see Busta is still workin with the family over there.  It's kind of weird, its like Aftermath is like the kid with the crazy ass parents that don't like any of his friends.  Looks like the kid is still workin with his friends though lol.

New video for Stat's official first single off the Statlanta album. I know it's been a long time coming, but I'm still anxious to hear the final product. Phonix did his thing on the beat, and Stat is solid with the pen as usual. The video is well put together too. Statlanta drops May 4th, so not too much longer.

Stat Quo - The Status Report
YES! And it's a new joint with no recycled tracks.  Thirteen tracks of that gritty, gutter ATL shit delivered by your friendly neighborhood playa patna Stat Quo. 

Beggers can't be choosers, but if I had one wish, I'd have someone master Stat's tapes.  The volume levels on his tracks always seem so inconsistent.  That being said, Stat has some BANGERS on this joint.  Cop it and support your boy!

The Invisible Man
More FREE and LEGAL music for that ass, compliments of music lovers who happen to be incredibly generous and talented artists.  A full album of Stat Quo joints sans rapper features but PLENTY of producer features, which is pretty damn cool if you ask me.  Stat also has some really interesting and candid interludes in there too.  Download and listen to my favorite cut off the album "Glass House" below.

Who dat is?  Bobby Creek.
I've got a bone to pick with ALOT of bloggers and music writers out there.  In early December, this dude put out a single Bobby Creekwater FEATURING Stat Quo - "Say You Will" (remix).  I know this because we blogged it back in December and thats how and when it was released.  Hardly anyone else mentioned the single, it wasn't touched.  I saw it nowhere in the "blogoshpere". 

Now its mid-January and Stat Quo's people put the EXACT same single out and announce it will be on Stat's upcoming mixtape Checks & Balances.  And this time its Stat Quo FEATURING Bobby Creekwater (even though Bobby Creek has the lead verse on the track, but thats neither here nor there) and this time, it spread like a computer virus.  Shouts to Bobby for puttin his work in and big shouts to Stat for helping to push himself as well as Bobby.  That's all good and I hope the mixtape KILLS it when it drops.  No problems with their people or the artists, it's all good push it however you can.

But my issue is with the bloggers and writers out there who completely ignored this track until Stat's people pushed it.  This is the problem with the whole industry.  Why did it take Stat and his people to put this single out on a Stat Quo mixtape for that single to start getting circulation?   I'll tell you why.  Unless there is a name, a brand, or some other sort of mainstream attachment, nobody wants anything to do with (let's assume the fact nobody knows Bobby Creek is on the Shady/Aftermath label).  People don't like to take risks.  People like familiar.  They like safe.   They like Coke, Pepsi, McDonalds and Interscope.  Music isn't a place for safe, it's creative and my suggestion is that you should start thinking as such or you're gonna continue to miss out.

Bloggers, writers, music fans everywhere. PLEASE.... PLEASE for the love of sweet baby Jesus on a Sunday morn stop ignoring the people who aren't part of that mainstream.  It's OKAY that Bobby Creekwater doesn't have a major label album release.  It's OKAY.  He's talented as hell and the track is fire, THAT's why you posted it and wrote about it.  The issue here is that you chose to ignore it until Stat's people were pushing it.  Now ask yourself, would you have even paid attention to this single had Stat's people not pushed it and included it on his mixtape?  Prrrrrrrrrobably not. 

And this dude is on a MAJOR LABEL!! Go figure.  Now imagine how much music you aren't hearing by dudes who can't afford to buy massive A&R mailing lists, websites, hire managers and publicists and get distribution deals.

We have enough independent music that has been submitted and is now waiting for spins on the show in a single month that we could EASILY go an entire 20 episodes without repeating a single track.  Imagine how much good music there is that we DON'T.  THAT'S ALOT OF GOOD MUSIC! 

Do yourself a favor and take the risk, listen to something independent for a change.  You won't be sorry.  Yeah I know, 3 minutes of your time is a monumental, groundbreaking commitment that will shake up your entire life, but it's worth it.  I promise.  And you're welcome.  Check please?  Thanks.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to step off my soap box to go delete a few random emails and listen to Bobby's new single "I Mean It" again.

LISTEN: Bobby Creekwater - "I Mean It"
