Kota The Friend x Statik Selektah - To Kill A Sunrise (Cassette)
Brooklyn Bred MC and Independent Artist, KOTA the Friend, continues to stake his claim in music, collaborating for a no frills, modern nostalgic, sharp, yet witty collaborative album with the legendary DJ, Statik Selektah. ‘To Kill A Sunrise’ arrives via FLTBYS Music and Entertainment, accompanied with an introductory visual KOTA and Statik released in celebration of the album. A sonic paring that’s been brewing for a few years now, ‘To Kill A Sunrise’ is a PSA, -- as KOTA the Friend chants on the opening track ‘I ain't the KOTA you first met… I. CAN’T. LOSE.’ The confident, independent MC, over the masterful production of Statik Selektah introduces a more seasoned musician, locking his view on success, stepping out of his own way and over all those who doubt the makings of an undeniable voice of a generation.
Coming off his ninth studio album, Statik Selektah takes a swing with KOTA the Friend. An early co-sign and friendship has produced one of the promising rising MC’s from Brooklyn. Statik’s unique ear and keen eye for talent has made him an undeniable force for both rising rappers and legends. Staying authentic and true to himself, Statik speaks on why this collaboration was essential for hip-hop, saying:
The pair show no signs of stopping. Aside from his own music, Statik has continued to make noise through the airwaves on his weekly Thursday night show “ShowOff Radio” on Shade 45 Sirius XM. In addition, he has toured all over the world DJing at festivals or backing music heavyweights like Q-Tip and Nas. From taking on independence and ownership (as discussed with The WSJ), to receiving co-signs from SZA to NoName, including LaKeith Stanfield, Erykah Badu, RZA and many others - KOTA the Friend continues to produce his own music, content, and shows under his label, FLTBYS, showing how ‘pressure makes a diamond and depression makes a legend’.
