Earatik Statik Feelin‘ Earatik
- Words: Patrick Sisson
- Label: Gravel
A talented Chicago crew that‘s not afraid to show some brawn and balls on the mic, Earatik Statik is MCs Celo and Abstruss Tone and DJ Rude1 of the Single Minded Pros. Much like their manic live shows, they start Feelin‘ Earatik in battle mode, aggressively assaulting the mic with sharp disses and calls to get hyped and grab your nuts. But they do live up to their name on this mature debut, bouncing between dark, dense tracks like "Illstatik," which recalls the claustrophobic beats of the Wu-Tang Clan and "Smile," a rollicking joint tied together with a Latin guitar line.
