Static Major’s Wife Avonti Garrett Interview via 'YouKnowIGotSoul.com': Talks Plans For Posthumous Album & Legacy

As always, here at Aaliyah Archives we try to cater to everyone, including all our Static Major fans. Recently, YouKnowIgotSoul.com did an interview with Static's wife, Avonti Garrett, who touches on a number of subjects pertaining to Static's legacy, upcoming projects as well as a posthumous album soon to be released. Read below for the full scoop! πŸ˜‰ Enjoy!
"YouKnowIGotSoul has made a conscious effort to keep the legacy of the late Static Major alive through different interviews and articles to highlight his artistry. His impact on the industry is still there with the likes of Drake and Chris Brown sampling his music. Recently we had an opportunity to speak with his wife Avonti Garrett about Static’s music and the plans that she has for releasing the new music. Prior to Static’s passing in 2008, he was gearing up to put out his debut album “Suppertime” on Blackground Records. Unfortunately the album never came out, but that may change very soon as Static’s family is planning for some major projects including a mixtape, a tribute show and the debut. We talked to the wife of the legendary singer/songwriter about the future of Static Major and also about a petition that she has set up for something in Kentucky.
YouKnowIGotSoul: It seems like there’s been some new Static content being released recently, so what sparked that?
Avonti Garrett: It’s been sparking for awhile but with anything, nothing comes before its time. You’re probably seeing it more, but I’m doing a tribute in November this year. This is our third tribute we’ve done and we usually get together every year for his birthday. This time I wanted to do something a little special. Everything is timing.
YouKnowIGotSoul: What kind of things can we expect in the future?
Avonti Garrett: Right now I’m working on a mixtape of released music. We’re remaking music that’s already been released. We’re reproducing it and the singers will be able to perform at the tribute show coming up November 25th.
YouKnowIGotSoul: Is this going to lead to the release of Static’s debut album “Suppertime”?
Avonti Garrett: Hopefully it’s going to create the buzz that I want it to. I want to bring out the project in a way that people will know it’s coming. I don’t want to just drop it. I want people to anticipate it. It’s coming, it’s definitely coming.
YouKnowIGotSoul: What’s the goal for you when releasing the album?
Avonti Garrett: I definitely would love for it to be on the radio. Static left a huge catalog and as a wife. I know how hard he worked. He was a studio rat and I’d like his music to come out properly. He was a legit songwriter and I’ll handle his catalog as such. He had lots of music and he would want the music to be properly released, so that is my goal.
YouKnowIGotSoul: Drake and Chris Brown have sampled Static’s music in recent years. How do you think that has impacted his legacy?
Avonti Garrett: It’s actually amazing. He’s always managed to keep himself relevant. It amazes me every time I hear something because it’s like “There’s Static!”. His music still works in the industry. His music was so classic and it’ll always be heard.
YouKnowIGotSoul: From my understanding, you guys also have a petition set up in Kentucky for a banner? Talk about that.
Avonti Garrett: In Kentucky, we have something called a Hometown Hero. That’s where different people who have come up out of a Louisville and achieved fame, they get to a chance to get their picture on the side of a building. i think the last one was Jennifer Lawrence. It was most between her and Static. She ended up getting it, so I’m hoping this time he’ll have his shot to get that. I’m shooting for that. There is a petition, so that they can at least consider him again. I’m trying to get at least 15,000 people and we’re almost at 4000. Hopefully this time next year we’ll have it. It takes a little time. You can sign the petition here: https://www.change.org/p/greater-louisville-pride-foundation-glpf-static-major-s-hometown-hero-banner
YouKnowIGotSoul: Talk about this tribute show you’re putting together.
Avonti Garrett: I just want to remember who he was and where he came from. I’m going to highlight different events in his life like his first time singing as a kid. It was a gospel song and it was actually on Playa‘s debut album “Cheers 2 U”. It’s just going to be different events in his life. Then we’re going to be some local artists that I’ve been working with. I’m going to give them an opportunity to sing some of his music and then I’m going to release his mixtape. After that, get ready for the release of “Suppertime” and some of his other music.
YouKnowIGotSoul: Are you going to be releasing Static’s music independently or through a major label?
Avonti Garrett: We don’t have a major situation set up. It’s all about calculating how to do this. Without Static, we don’t have an actual artist to promote. We’re trying to think of the best way to release it. We’re looking to have the proper stage and marketing for it. That’s what I’m going to be working on now. With the internet now and with streaming, that helps a lot. We’ll see!
YouKnowIGotSoul: Has anyone reached out to you about a documentary about Static’s life?
Avonti Garrett: A lot of people have reached out to me about that. I would definitely like to work on something like that. I had reached out to “Unsung” before and everyone there told me that Static was not unsung. I think he deserves maybe a VH1 documentary or it could be a little more to it. I would definitely love to do it if it’s with the right people.
YouKnowIGotSoul: What do you want people to take away from Static’s music when it comes out?
Avonti Garrett: I think Static with his music, I think he was able to find a certain vibe. I think with music now, the vibe is kind of off to me. We don’t have the richness or fullness of music like the way he used to do it with his harmonies. It’s so microwaved now with all the autotune. Static didn’t record like that. He was a real artist and he was good at what did.
YouKnowIGotSoul: Anything you’d like to add?
Avonti Garrett: I’d like to thank you guys and everybody who has been responsible for keeping his legacy alive. I’m here and as long as I’m here, I’m going to continue what I can do to keep his legacy alive. He left the world some great music and it’s up to me as a wife to make sure that it comes out. I won’t let his legacy die and I’ll keep it going for as long as I can and hopefully when I’m done, his kids will continue with that."

Static Major's "Hometown Hero" Banner Petition


What's good everyone? As you all know, not only do we look out for Aaliyah fans, we never fail to forget all our Static Major fans out there too! πŸ˜‰ 

Not long ago, I came across another petition to help the late, great Static Major with his very own 'Hometown Hero Banner'. For those who are not familiar, here is a little description of what the organisation is about from their official website which you can visit via... http://louheroes.org/#heroes


"The Hometown Heroes program began in 2002 as the sole project of the nonprofit Greater Louisville Pride Foundation (GLPF). Although the original intent of the program was to enhance civic pride by installing a jumbo photographic mural honoring Louisville native Muhammad Ali, it quickly expanded to include the recognition of other athletes with strong roots in the community. Today, the Hometown Heroes program has grown to honor a diverse group of famous Louisvillians from a variety of professions – all of whom have inspired others and represented our community to the rest of the world. The giant vinyl banners, some stretching as high as 60 feet, are essentially works of public art and can be found on buildings throughout the Louisville metro area."


And here is a description of exactly what the petition is asking for...



"Stephen “Static/Major” Garrett was born on November 11, 1974 in Louisville K.Y, a place he was proud to call home. He was a singer songwriter and record producer. Static gained posthumous fame for appearing on Lil Wayne's 2008 album “Tha Carter 3” for the song “Lollipop”. He made his breakthrough working with singer Ginuwine. Static wrote the song “Pony” which became a major hit and a milestone in both Static’s and producer Timbaland’s career. He was also a member of the R&B Trio Playa who’s mostly known for their hit single “Cheers 2 U”.
For well over a decade Static has been an influential factor in the music industry and continues to have an impact with his musical works. His play on words, harmonizing melodies and keen ear for music lead to the release of some of the industry’s greatest hits such as Aaliyah’s “Rock The Boat”, Ginuwine’s “Pony” and “So Anxious”, and Lil Wayne’s world-renowned “Lollipop”. His profile includes work with artists such as Aaliyah, Timbaland, Missy Elliott, Christina Aguilera, Drake, Rihanna, Nas, Jamie Foxx, Al Green and countless other well-known artists.
Static passed at the height of his career on February 25, 2008, due to medical negligence, bringing his life’s work and passion for music to a standstill.
To Pay tribute to the legend the fans would like to get Static his own Louisville Own "Hometown Hero" Banner and we need YOUR help. THE MORE SIGNATURES THE BETTER. LET'S DO IT FOR STATIC. HE DESERVES IT. TRULY A UNSUNG LEGEND."

πŸ” via @eliane.nicole: “Aaliyah and me in the beautiful ocean in Fiji. This was such a special trip. She rarely vacationed because she worked constantly since she was a very young girl, so it was so nice and very rare for her to have this downtime with friends. We were there for 3 weeks from December 1997, to January 1998. We rang in the new year in Fiji. Her loyal fans always hit me up asking me to share pix of her. It is so wonderful how much they love her and keep her memory alive on social media even 16 years after her passing. She never saw Facebook, IG, any of it, but I know she would be so tickled by it all and touched that her fans do daily posts and are so reverent in keeping her legacy alive! ❤️❤️#beautifulmemories #babygirl #Aaliyah” | Thank you so much for sharing with us all! πŸ™πŸ’š Love seeing Aaliyah in her braids! 😩😍❤

Petition to Bring 'A A L I Y A H: The Inside Look' back to YouTube


πŸ” via @theofficialamorphous: "(Link in bio). ‘AALIYAH - The Inside Look’ premiered on YouTube two days after Aaliyah’s death anniversary, as a loving two hour fan-made documentary created by myself. Though it used footage from various media outlets, and music from Aaliyah’s and many other artists’ catalog that I clearly do not own, the film was non-profit and made to showcase Aaliyah’s life, the way it should be documented and celebrated. Also, all of the footage/music that was featured in the film is available on YouTube, uploaded by people who clearly do not own the material as well.
A day after the documentary was released to rave reviews & media coverage, over twenty-five thousand views and endless comments praising the film, Reservoir Media (Merlin), removed the film from YouTube due to “copyright infringement”. Reservoir had already given my account two strikes twice just days before, for sharing my Aaliyah mashups with the world. Thus, my entire account was removed from YouTube.
Many fans, including myself, feel that this is a personal attack on me. All of Aaliyah’s music is uploaded to YouTube by people who clearly do not have the “rights” to upload them. Plenty of mashups including the same exact songs that I used are still up with millions of views. This is unfair. This does not make sense.
Though available on www.aaliyahtheinsidelook.com releasing the fan-made documentary to YouTube was the most logical way to get it seen by as many fans as possible.
I am asking Reservoir to retract their copyright infringement claims, and allow the release of the film. 
If you truly enjoyed 'AALIYAH - The Inside Look’, I ask of you, truly, to sign this petition. Her story deserves to be told the right way. #Aaliyah"
I’m not even surprised by that treacherous snake! πŸ˜©πŸ˜’ He really doesn’t want people to remember Aaliyah at all, yet he’s sitting on a full stack of music which he selfishly refuses to make accessible for the fans! Aaliyah worked too damn hard not to have her music available for her adoring fans to have. Like I said before…the truth shall continue to be exposed and prevail πŸ’… Please show your support by signing the petition via...
You can also help by spreading the word to all your friends and family on all your social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter etc... Every signature obtained helps towards bringing this documentary back on YouTube for ALL fans to view at their leisure, as well as remembering a woman who impacted many lives.πŸ™πŸ’š

A A L I Y A H : The Inside Look | Documentary By Amorphous (Full Video)


The wait is finely over #TeamAaliyah! As promised Amorphous has released his full Aaliyah documentary 'Aaliyah: The Inside Look' (it was originally meant to be released on the 25th, but due to 8 hours of exporting the 2 hour video, we can forgive him for that! πŸ˜‰). Besides, I prefer people to take their time when it comes to Babygirl, as apposed to rushing. Aaliyah herself was known for being a perfectionist, thus, we should similarly take the same approach for whatever we do concerning our beloved angel πŸ™πŸ’š

Having just finished watching the documentary (Pre-warning – make sure y'all keep those tissues ready for all those emotional parts! 😒) it has just confirmed to me what I felt from watching the trailers alone. By far, one of the best visual documentaries I have seen for years! Everything was done so tastefully, where you feel captivated and drawn from the very beginning. The video production, editing, sound editing, music choice, narration, facts etc... (the list 'goes on and on and on...') were all spot on and flowed beautifully in a professional manner. I know that this video was not made for any monetary gain, but if I were ever to see a DVD copy of this, I would hands down buy it. I've seen countless documentaries in the past where some facts have not been told correctly, or lack certain parts of Aaliyah's early life, career and the friends who accompanied her.

Made by a fan, for the fans, you can tell that a lot of hard work, passion and dedication has been taken in throughly to produce such a heartfelt, emotional film of a woman who touched all boys, girls, men and women. Be it a 'Young Nation' fan or an older generation fan, we can learn a lot about Aaliyah's life just by watching this. I know for one that I definitely learnt some new things I did not know before (I especially loved the music chart receipts from the UK, which if you don't know by now is where I am from 😎). It just generally made me feel so proud to be a fan of hers, and knowing how much love Aaliyah had for her fans, so that was really insightful and refreshing to know. 

Personally speaking, I'm quite a strong person so I knew I would get teary eyed watching this particular documentary. Never in my life did I imagine the 11 year old child in me to be bawling out my eyes, feeling that same pain I felt that very same day on hearing the news of her passing. It really touched my heart in ways I never thought imaginable. It was like some of my grieving process was still repressed from all those years ago, taking a trip down memory lane, and re-living all those moments I remember watching live on TV as a young kid (both the good and bad). 

All in all this is a MUST watch for ALL fans and for future generations to come. No matter how hard people try to cover, re-invent or change history, the truth shall always prevail and set Aaliyah, Diane, Michael and Rashad Haughton free. Aaliyah may not be able to speak for herself, but we as fans are her voice, alongside her family (minus Barry Hankerson of course, who I constantly cursed at every time he was shown throughout the film! LOL πŸ˜‚)

Jimir, I want to personally thank you for all the hard work and effort you put into making this documented video of Aaliyah's life. You've put your whole heart, soul, sweat, blood and tears into making something that was truly worth the wait. I wish you nothing but success in your future endeavours and hope that other professionals can take head and follow suit on how to create something through the right means, with the utmost respect towards Aaliyah's legacy. πŸ™πŸ’š 

Before watching here's a synopsis from Amorphous himself, for those who may not be aware...

"'AALIYAH - The Inside Look' is a documentary created entirely by Amorphous, as a touching two hour tribute honoring Aaliyah's life and legacy. Through his eyes as a beloved fan, experience getting to fall in love with Aaliyah, once again, as we take a look at her life and everlasting legacy up until 2017. 

'AALIYAH - The Inside Look' features media from various outlets and channels, including footage from major corporations. I do not own any rights to their footage or music. This documentary is made strictly for entertainment purposes only, and is made from a fan - for the fans.

Handheld Footage Thanks:

This film is dedicated to Aaliyah Dana Haughton, Michael Haughton, Diane Haughton, and Rashad Haughton."

Aaliyah: Rare Photo


πŸ” via @amyduboisbarnett: “RIP Aaliyah. This photo of us was taken at her last album release party. I was the #editorinchief of #HoneyMagazine at the time, and had just interviewed her for our next #cover. It was Aaliyah’s last #interview before her death… We were supposed to do the cover #photoshoot when she got back from that fateful trip to the Bahamas. I was in Toronto, at a conference for women in the #entertainmentindustry, on August 25, 2001, the day of her tragic death. I’ll never forget the ballroom full of pagers going off and the shock and the tears. The group prayer… Then the rush back to NYC to put together a fitting #tribute issue. I miss Aaliyah's #spirit and #creativity all the time. She was guarded and shy, but still projected #confidence and #sensuality. And her music; we’ve seen nothing like it since… #gonetoosoon #babygirl #rip #trailblazer#legend #aaliyah #music #fbf #flashbackfriday” | Thank you for not only a beautiful photo, but a beautiful caption, sharing your memories along with it. πŸ™πŸ’š

Been saving this particular picture for today πŸ˜‡❤ Here is a rare picture of former MTV Germany host Anastasia with our beloved Aaliyah. This particular photo was taken in 2000 during the time she was promoting the movie #RomeoMustDie, and came to the interactive show called Select MTV (TRL). Huge thank you to Anastasia Zampounidis for sharing this gem via Twitter as well as Sabahattin for the heads up! πŸ™πŸ’š

Still remember taking this photo (that I keep framed in my office) at the end of a long session back when disposable πŸ“·’s were the shit and that shirt on that guy in that music video that you would clown (you know the one). Still remember you giving a crew of guys from the ATL @bryanmichaelcox @jazzepha @teddyalexanderbishop a chance to make some πŸ”₯ for you. Can’t thank you enough. Anyway rest easy. Party and Cracker Jacks when I get there. #adh#babygirl" | Thank you so much for sharing your memories with us all πŸ™πŸ’š

I damn near FOUGHT to get oneπŸ˜‚ I’m glad I was able to walk the same halls as her in that old raggedy original DSA buildingπŸ˜‚ That building and the kids were special man. We were ALLLLL hurt when she passed. Felt like we lost a cousin. R.I.P Aaliyah!! #Aaliyah #AaliyahFans #Detroit#DetroitSchoolOfArts” | Thank you so much for sharing! Love these pics!
