Thursdayz 4 Wordplay: Stalley ‘Cup Inside A Cup (Freestyle)’

Stalley is slowly becoming the next big voice of Maybach Music Group. The Ohio native seems to be a perfect fit for the already star-studded line-up at MMG. As we take a closer look at what motivates Stalley to writing the things we hear from him, we’re also delighted to catch his latest freestyle for Revolt TV, titled “Cup Inside A Cup”.

These guys make it look so easy! Here’s yet another MMG freestyle starring Meek Mill and Stalley. The two Maybach Music Group emcees go in on Red Cafe’s ‘Let It Go’ and Redman’s ‘Tonight The Night’. I don’t think there’s enough music in the dj booth for these dudes, they could probably rhyme all night. Watch out for Stalley too, it’s only a matter of time before he takes off just as Meek Mill did about a year ago.

Got Next: Maybach Music’s “Stalley”-Ohio’s Next Player

“Either you’re slingin’ crack-rock, or you’ve got a wicked jump-shot”. When Biggie spit that line back in 94, it became clear to the world that one’s odds of making it out of ghetto black America were slim to none.

Those words resonate clearly for a cat like Stalley who began with hoop dreams that an injury would eventually put a sudden end to. The Ohio native explained in a recent interview that following his injury that put an end to his once promising basketball career, he found himself strangely drawn to music and 4 years later signed to Rick Ross’s Maybach Music.

Sounds pretty simple huh?  but it was no cakewalk for the small-town dweller who found solace and inspiration in music. The monotony of a small town and get destructive, and the predictability of each and every encounter even the more draining.

“My thing is I just didn’t wanna end up being stuck there, ’cause a lot of people end up selling and using drugs or are just there, existing… says Stalley.

Stalley admits to having a desire to want to know more than what his small town dwelling allowed him to see. Years later, the newcomer seemingly humble and driven at the same time, displays a soulful grace through his music of which he credits towards his diverse taste.

With countless features on heavy rotation, an independent album “Lincoln Way Nights” already released and an MMG co-sign to say the leased, it is safe to say the Ohio native has a bright future ahead of him.
