Since Goin’ Ape in 2008, Stalley has been making moves as part of a few crews—including Ski Beatz and his whole 24 Hour Karate School run, and Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group (which included Atlantic Records in the mix).
Unfortunately, despite releasing countless mixtapes, the Ohio native only released one album (2014’s Ohio) during the nine years that followed his debut.
All things changed in 2017, though. Now rolling on the independent front, Stalley has released two more albums, and, most recently, his Tell the Truth: Shame the Devil EP.
In promotion of Tell the Truth, Stalley stopped by Shade 45 for a sit-down with Sway in the Morning. Following talk of the project (which is the first of a three-part series) and finding his independence, the Honest Cowboy took part in DJ Wonder’s “5 Fingers of Death” challenge (16:00).
In a similar situation, Dee-1 has been making moves with an endless amount of mixtapes over the last decade and change. Earlier this month, the New Orleans spitter finally came through with his official debut album, Slingshot David: The Album.
Sitting down with Sway in the Morning, Dee-1 broke down the project, his faith, making the most out of your time on Earth, and much more. He also took part in the “5 Fingers of Death” segment, holding it down for the 504.
