Stalley delivered his latest body of work yesterday (Dec. 6), a collection of eleven songs featuring a single assist from Ania Hoo. Stalley devoted an entire category of his album to his most recent project at the time. The same album will also feature a new video from Cincinnati based producer K.FISHA, for a track called “DILLA BAP.” The song is an ode to the late Slum Village legend, with K.FISHA producing the track and seeing the Ohio act break down poverty and violence. The video can be seen below:
Featuring a clip directed by Bolo and starring Stalley riding in a convertible Rolls-Royce, the accompanying video to “DILLA BAP” shows Stalley cruising through the city. As he delivers his rewind-worthy bars, the masked individuals behind him can also be seen delivering a pair of rewind-worthy bars behind him.
It has been reported that Stalley’s new album is based on the Oscar-winning drama of the same name, a movie about the life of professional boxer Rocky Graziano, which he, like many other artists, drew inspiration from during his golden age.
“The album I have just released is inspired by a film from 1956 called Somebody Up There Likes Me… Some of the themes in the music are similar to those in the movie. This is the theme that I have carried throughout my life and profession that I am loved and protected.”
In the year 2021, Stalley teamed up with Apollo Brown for a music project called Blacklight. There were 15 tracks included on that full-length album, and a few notable collaborations were done with Joell Ortiz, Omari Hardwick, and Skyzoo. As far as solo albums are concerned, his last offering, Gone Baby, Gone, was released that same year as his last solo album.
