Review by Steve 'Flash' Juon

Artist: Statik Selektah f/ Cassidy, Saigon & Termanology
Title: To the Top (Stick 2 the Script)
Label: Showoff/Brick Records

The Lawrence raised and Boston-based DJ and producer Statik Selektah is back with another single for your ears. The inclusion of Termanology on the song isn't a big surprise since he and Selektah have been tight, and it also makes sense for Cassidy and Saigon to be in the mix since Selektah is definitely a "DJ of the streets" and both MC's are far more popular than their record sales to date would indicate. What really makes the song work though is Selektah's mix, showing himself to be a modern day DJ Premier in his superb choice of guitar licks, shuffling drum beats and scratched in Jay-Z and G. Rap samples in the hook. This song gives Termanology a chance to outshine his better known compadres and he doesn't blow the opportunity: "Yo my flow's like a 10 of 10, throwed off the medicine/And my bags come back fat, like Eminem/Nobody can body me, throw me in the ring with them/Suplexin rap cats like Owen Hart, I'm killin 'em." Ouch! This is the the song on your underground tape that even your DipSet loving friends will have to respect.
