Beantown's main man on the ones and twos is back with yet another star-studded slab of fresh rap, with Statik Selektah serving up a healthy dose of scratches, loops, soul samples and no-nonsense drums for his slew of guests to stretch out comfortably over. With everyone from Action Bronson, Black Thought, Joey Bada$$, Flatbush Zombies, Sean Price, et al. (the list is too long) stopping by to drop some gems over Statik's stellar production, Extended Play easily warrants repeated listens in the whip. Hands down, the best track is lead single "Bird's Eye View," which has the venerable Raekwon and "top 5 MC of all time" Black Thought spitting knowledge with young gun Joey Bada$$ over Seleketah's shimmering soul. Other tracks that stand out are (believe or not) are "21 & Over," which finds Sean P linking with Mac Miller, and testosterone-fest "Funeral Season," featuring Styles P, Bun B and Hit Boy shitting on everybody in their way. Do yourself a favour and cop this release. Rap is good nowadays, so indulge.
