Massachusetts-hailing pair Statik Selektah and Termanology continue to build interest in their forthcoming collaborative album 2012 (under the moniker 1982 – a nod to both mens’ birth year) by liberating track number nine “Thug Poets” in its mastered form, following an earlier leaked version.

Contrary to the initial release, “Make It Out Alive” which revolved around a much more uplifting tone, Statik Selektah supplies this new track with mellow, elongated riffs and a slew of samples to build the platform on which Termanology, Roc Marciano and the not-so hostile Havoc deliver their introspective thoughts.

Expect nothing but that good ol’ tried and tested hip-hop on 2012, which is expected to drop on May 22nd.
