Tuesday, May 22, 2012 12:05AM
[Group outfit 192 (Statik Selektah & Termanology) teamed up to scratch and spit, striving to bring real hip-hop back to the masses with their new album, 2012.]
1. Real Hip-Hop Meets The Masses
Termanology: It's the best album coming out this year. We do real hip-hop. I don't know if [your readers] listen to the radio or watch TV, but real hip-hop is hidden away from the masses. People look at us like [we're] underground even though Statik's on a radio station and all over the world. We're trying to bring underground to the masses. It's kinda like Gang Starr, I guess. Just keeping that real stuff alive.
2. A Producer That Can Scratch
Statik Selektah: You should buy it because the scratches on it...all the other producers can't scratch for sh*t. All the deejaying is missing some hip-hop right now and that sh*t's corny. DJs should go back to cuttin' and scratchin'. Pick up a f*ckin' turntable.
3. Mac Miller
Termanology: Mac Miller's on it, and a lot of people buy his stuff. If everybody who buys Mac Miller's album buys our album, I guess we'll be doing good.
4. Welfare & McDonald's
Statik Selektah: Term has two kids, and if you don't buy it then he'll have to go shop at McDonald's and I'll have to go on welfare to buy Hennessy.
5. Everyone Bootlegs, But This Is Worth It
Term & Statik: 1982 says you should buy our album because everybody downloads these days. And since we went out of our way to make an amazing hip-hop album, you should at least go to the store and cop it. If you're too lazy you should just go on iTunes and buy it right there...And if you don't buy it, I'll quit and hip-hop will literally die.
