Stalley Releases ‘NineteenEighty7′ Featuring Schoolboy Q
As the title suggests, the song is dedicated to the '80's babies and the year some would say is when hip-hop came into its own.
On the Terrace Martin-produced banger, Stalley paints vivid pictures of a Midwest transplant living out on the West Coast trying to survive on the gritty streets of Los Angeles.
"Midwest n---- in the West / Red Corvette speeding down Sunset / Ski mask, black Tec / Pulling through the set / Gang signs and palm trees, bomb weed and a vex," he raps.
The bearded Ohio rhymer later spits, "I'm Malcolm Little with an ink pen / A long way from Malcolm-Jamal Warner living / No Theo Huxtable / I hustle for my living / Never had to fit in the survival of the fittest."
Stalley describes his mixtape, 'Honest Cowboy,' as a truthful representation of his life. He also wants his fanbase to join him on his journey.
"They know I’m from Ohio," he tells the Grio. "[The fans] know I’m into sports, sneakers, fashion. But, you know, I really want to get them deeper into my life -- meet my father, my mother, my kids. I want them to feel like family.”
Stalley's mixtape, 'Honest Cowboy,' is set to drop later today.
