Rap heavyweights Paul Wall, Termanology, and Statik Selektah have joined forces for a smooth new song called “No Asterisk”. A single from their upcoming collaborative album Start 2 Finish, this track follows the release of the project’s first single- the Pete Rock-produced “Recognize My Car”. Here, an elegant instrumental centred around angelic backing vocals and atmospheric keys provides a warm, luxurious foundation for the two rappers’ engaging, evocative rhymes. They exhibit a natural chemistry, trading off verses packed with vivid imagery and charismatic braggadocio. A strong track from Wall, Termanology, and Selektah overall, this is an addictive, relaxed offering that is suitable for cruising in the evenings with the top down.
