In the room conducted by the legendary rapper Apathy, there were a number of guests that was in the room, featuring Marco Polo, Statik Selektah (peep the latest interview by Chase), Breakbeat Lou, and his (now-publicly known) cousin Phesto (Souls of Mischief).
“Yo, Khalil, could we get that next Self Scientific shit? I’ve been asking you for about three years,” DJ Scratch said.
Khalil openly admits two things: his partner Chace has been on him about finishing the album, and wanting the album to be done right.
“It’s almost done, we’re real close,” Khalil said. “I think everybody’s going to be really happy when they hear it. We put a lot into it.”
It’s been nine years since they last dropped a project of any kind.
Self Scientific, consists of Chace Infinite and DJ Khalil came into the game with their first single, Return, which caused the hiphop scene in 1998 to take notice. In 2001 they dropped their critically acclaimed debut album, The Self Science. Four years later, they’ve dropped their bombshell sophomore joint, Change. They’ve also released a mixtape along the way, like 2005’s Gods And Gangsters as well as a slew of singles. The latest effort from the group was their 2011’s Trials of the Blackhearted EP.
“Self Scientific is anti-industry, it’s our baby. We do what we want, (and) we do other stuff outside of that, but that’s our safe haven – in terms of just being creative. We want to give people substance,” Khalil said.
