Statik Selektah Talks About His Favorite Past-Time & Meeting Guru For The First Time
In "That Thing", Watch Loud asks artists about the things they just can't live without and in their first clip DJ and producer Statik Selektah tells us about his pool obsession as well as the first time he met Guru.
Statik Selektah, and his bride-to-be, Fran, recently had their first baby girl (Harley Emma Baril) and they have been inspired to call attention to HG (hyperemesis gravidarum), a disease that affects the pregnancy process for 2% of women worldwide and one that his fiancé Fran suffered with during the pregnancy of their daughter.
The disease is extremely serious and can cause birth defects, as well as be life threatening to both mother and child. To raise awareness of this disease that often goes mis-diagnosed, due to similarities with morning sickness, Statik has created a video with his fiancé, encouraging more women and families to be aware and get tested if they suspect there is something wrong.
Statik & Fran are excited to share that they have a beautiful, healthy baby girl, because they were able to treat this disease early in the pregnancy.
The background instrumental for a portion of this video was created using Harley Baril’s heartbeat from inside the womb.
The song is featured on Statik Selektah’s latest album, ‘Lucky 7,’ out now:
