Question of the Week #2

Even though Static was still grinding hard with the group Playa, he ventured out and soon became an accomplished songwriter.

So the question today is, "What is your favourite Static-penned track by a female artist (female group)?

This is another hard one for me because it's hard enough choosing from Aaliyah's catalogue. Then when you add in all the songs that he's done for artists like Brandy, Nicole Wray and Truth Hurts, it becomes a hard question to really answer.

I'm going to have to go with "Are You That Somebody?" or "Try Again" by Aaliyah. It would be impossible for me to choose from these two because really, they're both on my "top 5 songs of all time"." I'm going to go with "Are You That Somebody" though, just because of how unique the song is, and also because of the fact that I got my Rock music listening friend listening to Aaliyah because of that song.

  8. "CITY LIGHTS" by JOJO...yea don't try to act like yall was up on that one. That track shows his versatility in the game...a young nigga from the west end of Louisville writing a SMASH like that for a 16/17 yr old girl from Suburban BOSTON?!?! fuck outta here if he wasn't the coldest w/ that pen...rip to the KING

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…
