SEV STATIK
Tha Point Man

By: Rocski@aol.com

In recent years, hip hop's focus has shifted from the original thought of true artists, to whatever seems to be raking in the most money at the time. We live in a sad era, when we no longer give praise to skill, creativity, and gifted musicianship, but to any talentless soul with a voice and the lethargic recipe for success. Fortunately, there has been a resurrection of everything we once loved, flowing from the underground scene. A mass of m.c.'s, d.j.'s, producers etc...have been keeping the art in top form.

One of these artists is Albany's Sev Statik. "Tha Point Man," a four song promo, is the newest of his various projects. Throughout the tape, Sev displays a knack for crafty wordplay, this is especially shown on "Linguistic Weaponry," a song shock full of battle lyrics and verbal wit. There's nothing sweeter to the ears than a verse from someone who actually studies the art of rhyming.

(excerpt from "linguistic weaponry")
-my lyrics resonate through your brain / then bounce off the back of your eyes and vibrate your whole frame methane type achromatic brother / can't see or smell me, if I drop the wack lyrics out the frame hip hop brought me through backspins, graffiti pins, and record bins / currently I shake hand with mics few friends droppin' lethal scribes to make ends/ when... I was 12 years of age, Sev hit the palace stage.

Sev Statik can be contacted for info. regarding upcoming projects etc... at e-mail (sev3@nycap.rr.com) or by calling (518) 446-9518.
