Statik Selektah’s new album Lucky 7 has gotten a lot of attention in recent weeks. The Massachusetts-born producer rounded up a star-studded squad of emcees to throw down on his seventh and “final” album. Last night (July 6), Statik held a private listening session and revealed some interesting details about the making of the album. Check out some flicks and exclusive footage from the event after the jump!

Statik Selektah sat down with MTV’s Rob Markman for a special edition of his ShowOff Radio show on Shade 45 to discuss his new, full-length album Lucky 7. They spoke about why this album would be considered his last. Since releasing his first album Spell My Name Right: The Album in 2007, Statik has been consistently dropping records with some of the most influential emcees in the game from veterans like Buckshot and Smif-N-Wessun to the newer cats like Joey Bada$$ and his Pro Era squad. However, this won’t be the last body of work we’ll see from Statik.

“This in no way means that I’m slowing down,” Statik said. “It just means that I’m not– do you know how many records that I’ve basically gave away through my albums over the years that could have been on someone else’s album?”

Statik broke down several songs off Lucky 7 like “Top Tier” with Bun B, Sean Price & Styles P and “Beautiful Life” featuring Action Bronson and Joey Bada$$, which he says was supposed to appear on Action’s most recent release Mr. Wonderful. The Duck Down producer also told the story of how he got Rapsody on “Another Level” and his initial thoughts of Your Old Droog before he contributed verses for two records on the album.

As a special treat, Cane, one of the artists featured on the song “Scratch Off” with CJ Fly & Talib Kweli, was in attendance and decided to spit a quick 16. Catch the special edition of Statik Selektah’s ShowOff Radio show this Thursday at 8 PM. Watch the freestyle below.
