Earlier this month, Stalley made his way into GWHQ for another GWHH-hosted media junket, while in town for a headlining set later that night. Up above, watch and enjoy a fun, entertaining, and informative one-on-one chat with another new correspondent for #TeamGowhere - joining his partner on the B96 morning show J Niice as well, Julian On Da Radio!
Right off the bat, Julian's sense of humor lightens the mood as the two go on to discuss Stalley's writing and recording process, the very first time meeting Rick Ross and then joining MMG, the upcoming Savage Journey Of The American Dream, what artists he would like to work with (namely Nas & Andre 3000), and what artists he listens to (hint: it's more than who you would think). Oh, and of course, Julian had to ask him about the beard. Watch and enjoy this in-depth chat that will seem like it went by fast given the fun they have while at GWHQ (it's always a fun time at GWHQ!). Be on the lookout for more from MMG's rising star with Savage Journey To The American Dream dropping next week and also be sure to hit the jump for more photos from the evening at the office!
It’s always good linking up with MMG’s Stalley when he comes to the Chi. This time around, Stalley and I chopped it up after his Double Door set featuring DJ Sean Mac, GLC,Mick Luter, D-Win, Al Dilla, and a host of other chicago emcees. Big up to my Gowhere familia Stan Perry for keeping the cameras rolling while the Double Door staff instructed us to move mid-interview. That was a gutsy call from an equally saavy professional. The groove was NOT disturbed and all went well.
Stalley spoke on his epic beard, the I Am Still Music Tour with Rick Ross and Lil Wayne, recording his next project in Chicago, WTT and duo rap collabs. This Stalley quote below is also yet another reason I love my great city. Blue collar groove!
“Chicago is the best of both worlds. You get the city feel of a New York City, but you can still get the midwestern home feel.” ~ Stalley
