Following a nearly two-year hiatus, Topeka, Kansas native Stik Figa is back, and has brought with him his highly-anticipated album, Central Standard Time.
The album, released through Mello Music Group, was set off by the project’s lead single, “Down Payment” featuring eLZhi and comes backed with even more dopeness, with features from Homeboy Sandman, Rappin 4-Tay and Quelle Chris, plus production from Nottz, !llmind, Exile, Black Milk and Apollo Brown.
Central Standard Time, the Topeka, KS native’s second official Mello Music Group release, is a meditation on struggles new, old, and eternal. Stik Figa’s rhymes remain intricate yet accessible, the words interlocking to create fresh meanings. Every verse displays his hard-won honesty. Though the pains are personal, the moments are strikingly familiar. These are the songs you play when you’re tired of being told to turn up.
