MaLLy is back at the DopeHouse.
The last time we heard from MaLLy was in 2014 when he released his breakthrough project The Colors of Black. Since then, the MPLS rapper has taken time to live life and regain clarity–physically, emotionally and mentally–and returned to the scene last September with the release of a follow-up album called The Journey To A Smile.
“Creating this record caused me to fall back in love with making music, live life in the moment, spend little to no time on social media and remove alcohol from my diet completely,” MaLLy says. “I gained so much clarity and truly believe it was meant to be this way. This newfound mental space and perspective is one I intend to work with from here on out.”
“Working with PC (the main producer) was a breath of fresh air because his sound was completely different than any other producer I had worked with,” he continues. “From the samples all the way down to the infectious basslines and alluring keys it was a match. Also, the conversations we had inspired me to write from some vulnerable places that liberated me from all the internal voices of self-doubt I had in my head.”
Keeping things in rotation, MaLLy has returned with a video for the elegant, feel good anthem, “Flying.” Shot in Oahu, Hawaii, the OMVI-directed video can be seen below. Press play and be sure to check out the album.
