Skype Listening Party (February 25th) + Special Guests to Reminisce on Static's Life

EDIT: It is now February 25th at 7 PM.

We will be having a Skype listening party that day and many of you may already know that was the date that Static passed two years ago. We're going to try making this listening party the biggest one yet, with guest hosts and exclusive music from every Static era. That's right, that means music from Da Bassment, Playa and finally, Static Major.

*DJ Slam Edit: We are trying to get some special guests that were involved in his life to speak on their memories and talk about his legacy. This is going to be huge!

Join us that day at 7 pm EST. Mark those calendars!

Interviews from the Skype Session!

Music: Static Major - La La Land (Demo)

Let's have some fun with this one. I would like all the readers to give it a shot and guess who Static was demoing this song for. This gives everyone an opportunity to interact with each other and best of all, we will play the final version on the 25th. So let the guessing begin and hopefully you guys aren't too far off. If you already know who it's for, please don't ruin it for everyone else :)



Much love goes out to Neeze for coming through with this long request from me.

Remembering Static Major 2 years later

Even though I never personally met the guy, it seems like I knew all about him through his music. So when I found out he had passed, it was difficult to accept even for me, because I grew up listening to a lot of songs that he wrote.

Fortunately for us though, his legacy will continue to live on, so take this time to comment on what your favourite Static song is, your reaction to his unfortunate death and just any memories you have!

Music: Yaushameen - Everytime You Go

Ok, here's another exclusive join for y'all, i don't have a lot of informations about this song, but my guess is the song was a Southernaire Allstars song, cause there's Yaushameen, Native (or J-Bird) on the track, Static doin the hook, i can also hear a little bit of Black in the last hook.
The song is sampled, got a little work for y'all, what is the sample ?? It's easy to find...
So i'm counting on Neeze to bring us more informations about that song, but for now let's take a listen to it.


Where Are All The True Static Fans?

Buddha, Tim and myself are putting in a lot of work to put together this Skype Party for all of you. On our blog, we are getting over 100 unique visitors a day, which is continuing to grow.

Static Tribute Guest Feature: Spark1One

The man behind the track "Stallion" will be there! I speak to him a lot; but if I didn't know he was a super talented producer, I would have thought he was just some average guy. He's a very humble person and I'm sure will have a lot of great memories to share with us.

Question Of The Week #8: Roll Call: Will You Be At the Static Skype Tribute?

With the Static Major Skype Tribute session coming up soon, I just have one question for everyone.

Will you be there?

I need to see how many people are showing up! The more the better. Trust me on that!

Shout out to Dimu for the dope banner.

Static Tribute Guest Feature: Willy Will

You've heard Willy Will's production on the monstrous "Slow Jams", and you've probably heard his beats' on the radio as well because he's signed under Polow Da Don. So for any young producers, here is your chance to ask someone who is already part of the music industry.

Music: Static Major - Your Valentine

For all the lovers out there, this song will definitely set the mood for Valentines day. For the single folks out there, sit back and enjoy Static's smooth falsetto.

Music: Static Major - Drawls

Here is a joint that Static/Devante did back in 2005 in LA. Do you recognize the sample? Of course you do! It was the intro on Ginuwine's "100% Ginuwine" album.



Now it has to be asked, did Devante do this on purpose or was it a coincidence? And a better question, who do you think flipped the sample better: Timbaland or Devante?

And for the sample heads out there, the song samples the Mcguyver theme

Twista speaks on Static Major

Here is an interview Jonathan Hay over at dubcnn.com did with Twista a while back as they discuss Twista's latest album.

Dubcnn: Static Major, who I went to school with [both Middle and High School] from Louisville, Kentucky, is also appearing on your album, and Static Major just like Michael Jackson – although not on the same success level, was definitely gone too soon… How did that song come about for your new album?

You know what; we didn’t actually link up personally to do the track. But I did meet him personally before. The vibe was close though, seeing that he wrote for Aaliyah, who also worked around my hometown - - and just being a fan of his music and the things that he wrote. It was amazing to talk to his management and the people around him to find out that he was such a big fan of my music - - and that really touched me. You can tell on the song [Gotta Get Me One] that my musical influence was part of his creation for the song, which came together for [Category] F5. It …
