Strong Arm Steady is being mighty generous. With the release of Stereotypes, the group's collaborative album with producer Statik Selektah, still a month out a six-song sampler dropped today, which is nearly half the record. Still riding with Stones Throw, Stereotypes is the follow-up to the group's In Search of Stoney Jackson album recorded entirely over Madlib production. On “Forever” SAS sounds as though it's loving the buttery slickness of Selektah production, as Phil Da Agony rants about Best Buy purchases and Krondon keeps his cool, rather than plotting on bank stick ups.
Stereotypes features guest appearances by Casey Veggies, Dom Kennedy, Chace Infinite, Planet Asia, Skeme, David Banner, and Black Hippy.
