Following this year's Lucky 7, veteran hip-hop producer Statik Selektah has shared an outtake from the sessions in the form of the Black Thought-featuring "Couldn't Tell."

The song features an old-school-sounding beat made up of chopped-up, pitch-raised vocals, moody keys and charmingly dated-sounding synth horns. Black Thought spits poetic bars overtop of the groove, painting a gritty portrait of fractured romance and musical passion.

Hear the unreleased track below. It's an impressive tune, especially considering that this comes from the cutting room floor.
