ROCKY POINT, N.Y. - Oct. 20, 2015 - PRLog -- From Pete Rock & CL Smooth to PRhyme, some of the best Hip-Hop projects have been anchored by one rapper and one producer. Further proving that point is the Long Island rhyme-slinger, and U.S. Army Veteran, TYP-ILL, who connects with Boom bap aficionado Statik Selektah, for the November 11th release of, Veterans Day.

Backed by stellar production from his collaborator, Typ delivers what he calls his finest project to date. He adds that nothing was forced about its creation, which becomes evident as soon as the album opener “Hennessy Lane” hits your ears. It’s a brisk, introspective joint that sets Veterans Day off in a major way. From there, the soldier emcee goes for the throat of his enemies on “Typ Statik,” pays homage to Queens rap legends on “Onyx,” and dishes out words of wisdom on “Let Em Talk.”

Typ may spit some bars with an air of braggadocio, but his words are always sincere and heartfelt, making tracks such as his ode to his daughter, “Arielle,” that much more poignant. And at a time when so many other artists’ authenticity is questionable (at best), you have to respect the man’s no-bullsh*t attitude. Statik echoes that sentiment: “Typ is dope because he tells true war stories, yet he's still dope as an artist. No gimmicks here.”

Beyond complementing one another sonically, Typ says that the producer pushed him to “absolutely” bring his best work to the studio. “Statik’s reputation alone made me want to take my time writing,” he says. “He also made me feel obligated to nail my verses.”

This is Typ’s moment. This is Veterans Day.
