Stalley Makes His Return With A Smooth Style That Feels All So New (Video)
OCTOBER 14 UPDATE: Stalley has released the video to “All So New”:
ORIGINAL SEPTEMBER 16 STORY: In 2018, Stalley continued his Tell The Truth: Shame The Devil EP series with volumes 2 and 3. It has been that series, combined with 2017 albums New Wave and Another Level, that has maintained the respected catalog of the Massillon, Ohio native since moving on from Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group. For those albums and extended-plays, Stalley has often been reflective of his career and very often open to revealing his spiritual side in his lyrics.
It seems he’s continuing on that path with his latest single. However, his instrumental aesthetics have deviated into a bit more of a calm and melodic tone. Teaming up with Los Angeles, California producer Jansport J (Ab-Soul, AZ, Tha Dogg Pound), Stalley releases his latest track “All So New,” which may be reflective of where he’s taking his musical career. On it, he reveals the unwelcome demons that have permeated his life throughout.
“Sat desperate for days, try’na feel the page / My thoughts locked in a cage, I started feeling raged,” he raps in opening his second verse. “M*rijuana and sage at my personal rave / Holistic psychedelics brought of mental change / Clear as the water, my thoughts became pure / Anxiety and stress I had to endure / Was barely outside, I had to keep it indoors / My sanity I had to fend for / Less or more the importance of allure was taking over my core / Off-center for sure my balance on the floor.”
