Stalley is one of my favorite MCs of the last 12 months. Aside from just being plain dope, he has 2 incredibly rare distinctions in today’s hip-hop landscape.

1. He does not curse, and 2. The vast majority of his music does not contain samples. No judgements against either cursing or sampling (some of the greatest to ever do it do both to the fullest) but it’s hard to find a credible rapper post 1987 who does this. Stalley just released a new song called Chevys and Ships. Check it out.  It features a Stevie Wonder sample that Terrace Martin, Kendrick Lamar and Cyhi Da Prynce also crushed recently.
