Versatile producer Statik Selektah recruits New York standouts Action Bronson and Joey Bada$$ for a super smooth collaboration on “Beautiful Life” off his upcoming album Lucky 7.
The result: a stunning record that combines well composed production (largely shaped by a sped-up Chaka Khan sample) and some amazing flows from some of the east coast’s finest.
Everything from the saxophones to the invigorating drum patterns contribute to the imagery of a convertible heading off into a sunset.
The abstract take on an early 1980s record, alongside some added instrumentation, provides the perfect canvas for Bronson and Bada$$ to excel lyrically, spitting bars about everything from eating fruit to having enough money to finally attain the material possessions they’ve always dreamed of.
Life is beautiful when your dreams are finally coming into fruition, isn’t it?
It seems as if that’s precisely the mood that Statik Selektah was aiming to capture when he put together this stunning instrumental. Everything from the saxophones to the invigorating drum patterns contribute to the imagery of a convertible heading off into a sunset – a scene that would represent a beautiful life for most.
