Music: Static Major - Questions (Aaliyah's Demo) (UPDATE WITH FULL SONG)

As we all know, Static & Aaliyah were close, you can feel the chemistry between the writer and the singer, and Static most impressive talent was his ability to write for a woman, to express a woman's feeling.
So there's the song "Questions" produced by Buddha, wrote & sung by Static, a demo song for Aaliyah, made around 2000-2001 i think. I don't know yet if she had the chance to record it for herself, but Static version shows his falsetto skills, he wrote for a woman, & even sing the demo like Aaliyah should sing it, amazing!
Stay tune for a snippet listening, something rare that i'm sure you don't wanna miss!

UPDATE: Here is the first installment of Static Music Monday.

    As some of you may know, I was right by Statics side when this shit was going on! And with tht being said, I always felt that he was speaking directly to babygirl (Aaliyah). The chemistry was off the charts. I miss my lil brother and lil sister dearly! I hope that you all enjoy and help us in continuing the legacy. They were both just really getting started!!! R.I.P. Static and Aaliyah, you both are truly one in a million!!!!!

    @dboy4100, just a couple. Some were placed on her last album. The good was that the internet era hadn't taken over yet! Lol.

  7. Wow! I wish we could hear Aaliyah's vocals from this! So they were on those hard drives in that lost bag and nowhere else? :( Whoever has those hard drives needs to return them or something! It'd be a shame if they were sold and just erased.... :(

  9. When i first heard this i thought "static is doing too much"...after the 3rd listen i was feeling it hard...especially the way he goes into the 1st verse w/ "Are you as happy as you make me?"...his vocal control is nice on this song...lyrically the song is deep and the arrangements are nice...I am sure Aaliyah did it justice as well

  13. I freaking love this song! I love the harmonies (I'm the biggest fan of harmonies), the arrangement and the questions themselves. I feel bad cuz I sound so awful singing falsetto! I love when he sings, "Is this foreeever or temporary?" lol I used to go around campus just singing that part!

Rashad Haughton (Aaliyah's Brother) on Static

I recently hit up Rashad Haughton, who is Aaliyah's brother and was very close to her, on Twitter to ask about Static. Here is what he had to say. Full interview to follow??

Music: Static Suppertime Mixtape Vol. 1 (2004) DOWNLOAD LINK

1. Stay Laced (Featuring Lil Flip) (4:14)
2. The Hood (Featuring Lil Flip) (3:41)
3. Rida (Featuring Lil Flip & Cassidy) (2:45)
4. She Say (Featuring Playa) (3:58)
5. Rollin (3:49)
6. Hard Tymez (Featuring Lil Flip) (2:40)
7. Weekend (Featuring Playa) (3:50)
8. Tipsy (3:23)

I've heard back in 2005 somebody talk about that "Suppertime Mixtape", but i found it in 2008, & unfortunaly, the mixtape was just available in mp3 format.
Released with no real promotion (but Louisville resident as i know, had this mixtape for a while), i guess lot of us didn't know about it until lately.
This is for the hood lovers, got Lil Flip on it, Young Sears productions, it's OG Music here! We also got Playa songs on it.
I guess Static wanted to give us just a taste of what Suppertime could be, the "Vol. 1" meaned it had to has other volume coming, but for this one like i said, it's OG Music except the last track...




Edit: You can listen & buy the mixtape here

UPDATE: So we…
