Stalley’s career to date has largely revolved around his home state. Ohio isn’t known for hip hop culture, but Stalley’s Chevy worshipping rhymes over unique beats and nontraditional flows has cultivated an impressive amount of success; in a relatively short period of time.
After numerous critically acclaimed mixtapes, that success culminated with Stalley inking a deal with Rick Ross’ MMG (Maybach Music Group) and the release of his official debut album, Ohio, which debuted at #35 on the Billboard 200 chart and included collaborations with Rick Ross, De La Soul, Ty Dolla $ign, August Alsina and Nipsey Hussle.
On 7-28-17, Stalley will release his new studio album, New Wave, which will be released in conjunction with Real Talk Entertainment. New Wave is a continuation of Stalley’s “Intelligent Trunk Music” theme; while also displaying his growth as an artist. With incredible lyricism and bars for days, New Wave, is an instant classic that is a mandatory addition hip hop fans catalog.
Via an exclusive premiere with Hotnewhiphop, Stalley releases the first single, “Madden 96,” from New Wave, which is also now available for pre-order.
