Here’s a fresh new joint from Stalley called Summer in America. It’s a tribute to Gil Scott Heron.
The Rashad-produced track has that deep funk bass and muted horn that tends to bring out the best in Stalley. Check it out.
Here’s what Stalley had to say about the song:
Summer isn’t officially here. Backyard bbqs, Car shows, and school yard hoops duels providing the sights and social engagements. 1991 found Fresh Prince hustling to the mall for a new short set. Twenty years later, Stalley grabs the keys to a freshly buffed ’72 Caprice, rounds up the Blue Collar Gang, and provides a new soundtrack to the American Summer. Production handled by Rashad.
“Summer In America” was inspired by the passing of Gil Scott Heron and his song “Winter In America”. He inspired me. This is a song for me to show how great Gil Scott Heron was not only as an artist but as a man, and in no way to disrespect him..
