Here’s an interview of Stalley where he discusses his earliest musical influences + his new video Hell’s Angels featuring Rick Ross (Video)

Stalley has gotten more recognition since joining MMG last year but he has been on the grind for many years. Stalley is not your average rapper. He combines intelligent lyricism with a blue collar work ethic and relatability. When you put that mix over the deep and soulful tracks toward which he gravitates, you get what he calls Intelligent Trunk Music. Here’s a look at Stalley as he discusses the hip-hop that shaped him into the artist he has become today. He talks about Tupac, Nas, Naughty By Nature, A Tribe Called Quest, The Roots, The Fugees and more. This is Where It All Began in Hip-Hop for Stalley. Related:
