Statik Selektah & Paul Wall – Give Thanks

Those who know Paul Wall from his breakout lean-warped Swishahouse anthems in the late 1990s and 2000s might be surprised by the mere existence of this Thanksgiving drop with Statik Selektah. Yet at the core of some the Houston rapper’s prior hits like “Girl” resides a clear appreciation of the East Coast boom-bap vibe that the Massachusetts-raised, New York-based DJ/producer just so happens to deftly pursue. More often than not, the two artists actually meet in the middle throughout Give Thanks, a taut mixtape that makes a compelling case for bridging their cities’ respective storied hip-hop traditions. Crackling with soul and engineered for showcasing a candy-painted slab, standout “OverCame” symbolizes their cross-country union, with Wall’s seasoned flow complemented by Buffalo, New York-repping Griselda Records MC BENNY THE BUTCHER.
