Leave it to Statik Selektah to have a slew of top tier MCs on wax together. His new project, The Balancing Act does just that. The legendary producer enlists the likes of Conway, Nas, Black Thought, Joey Bada$$, and even Jack Harlow for the album but among the many posse cuts, it’s the union of Dave East and Method Man on wax that truly stands as one of the best tracks. The Harlem rapper and the Wu-Tang MC link up on “Hard Living” where they reflect on their upbringing in New York City over grimey East Coast-centric production and crispy drums. Given that Dave East played Method Man on Wu-Tang: An American Saga, their new collaboration feels like a full circle moment.
