Stalley – “Swangin” (Feat. Scarface)

Rick Ross and his Maybach Music cohorts seemingly have the mainstream rap game in a chokehold, so it is extraordinarily head scratch-inducing that “Swangin’,” Stalley’s first single from his MMG debut full-length, has already been done by different rappers. The track utilizes the exact same title, the exact same beat, and the exact same hook… More »

Stalley – “Petrin Hill Peonies (Harry Fraud Remix)” (Stereogum Premiere)

New York producer Harry Fraud is a really in-demand dude — he was the person responsible for the beat on the Main Attrakionz single we just posted — so it’s probably no surprise that he turns Stalley’s strong Savage Journey To The American Dream cut “Petrin Hill Peonies” into an otherwordly and frenetic jam, musically… More »

Here’s the video for Stalley’s “Midnight Satori,” a spare clip where Stalley and his crew hold down an abandoned building. The track’s from his pre-Save Journey To The American Dream release Songs By Me. Watch out for a key Ruffles potato chip product placement. Slick Jackson directs. Watch it below. More »

Maybach Music Group – “Power Circle” (Feat. Kendrick Lamar) Video

Here’s the clip for Maybach Music Group’s nine-minute posse cut “Power Circle,” and it’s basically a chronicle of day-to-day MMG living. So, a lot of Miami Heat games, a lot of lounging in Ferraris and drop-ins from Usher, Drake, DJ Khaled and more. Watch below. More »

Mixtape Of The Week: Stalley Savage Journey To The American Dream

I’ve seen the massively bearded, dependably sincere Ohio rapper Stalley live twice. The first was about five months ago at the University of Virginia, where he opened for Kendrick Lamar. Booked alongside a like-minded rapper and playing to an amped-up crowd of college kids in a location that doesn’t exactly get a whole ton of… More »

Stalley – “Everything New” Video

Last week, the forever-sincere Ohio rapper Stalley released his strong Savage Journey To The American Dream mixtape. Alabama space-cadets Block Beattaz produced most of the tape, but Stalley roped in the Neptunes’ Chad Hugo to produce the tape’s biggest outlier, the rattling “Everything New.” Hugo shows up in the song’s brand-new video, which finds Stalley… More »

Download Stalley Savage Journey To The American Dream Mixtape

Everyone who’s written about the thoughtful Ohio rap introvert Stalley lately has mentioned that he’s a weird fit for Rick Ross’s Maybach Music Group label, where he signed last year, even if he and his new label boss sport matching gigantic beards. And it’s true; the two make an odd fit. But Stalley’s new mixtape… More »

G-Side – “Gettin’ It” Video (Feat. Stalley & Joi Tiffany)

Last last year, the tough, aspirational Huntsville rap duo G-Side released the excellent and vaguely overlooked album Island. One of its standouts was “Gettin’ It,” which featured the singer Join Tiffany, the blue-collar Maybach Music rapper Stalley, and a gorgeously psychedelic track from production team Block Beattaz. That track now has a low-budget video –… More »

Stalley – “330” Video

Today, the massively bearded Ohio rapper and improbable Maybach Music singing Stalley releases the deluxe version of Lincoln Way Nights, one of the year’s strongest mixtapes. On Lincoln Way Nights, just about everything works; the calm and breezy tracks from producer Rashad make a gorgeous bed for Stalley’s twisty delivery and conscientious lyrics. This past… More »
