[After putting out his new The Urban Hitchcock album, producer Jonathan Hay tells SOHH the aftermath of calling out hip-hop artists Action Bronson and Statik Selektah on his "The Jerk” song.]
I talk about a very awkward incident in full detail on the song, “The Jerk” from The Urban Hitchcock LP about Action Bronson and Statik Selektah.
Since the release of the album it’s been strange between me and Kxng Crooked. As you know, Crooked just released his Statik Kxng project with Statik Selektah and he makes several appearances on The Urban Hitchcock LP.
Over the last few years I’ve done a lot of work with Kxng Crooked, including co-executive producing and songwriting on his Sex, Money and Hip Hop album, filmed some scenes for the TV show One Shot, which was just picked up by BET. I also worked with him on the When Music Worlds Collide album and on some other singles and other publicity campaigns. None of that would have happened if I wouldn’t have reached out to him for a feature years ago.
I’ve added a great deal of value to his life and career, so if he’s mad at me for calling out Action Bronson and Statik Selektah on “The Jerk” so be it.
I’m really proud of all the work I’ve done with Kxng Crooked. I’ve worked with him in Charlotte, Atlanta, Detroit and Louisville so we have some mileage together and he became a very good friend. I still consider him one of the all-time greats.
