Stalley drops new ‘Speak No Blue’ project
The new 8-track project includes features from Trippie Redd and Major Myjah.
After giving fans a quick taste of what he’s been working on by dropping his single “Dinosaur” as a surprise, Stalley unleashed his latest body of work on Speak No Blue. The 8-track project was released on Sept. 25, just months after his other 2020 release Pariah. Speak No Blue includes features from Major Myjah and Trippie Redd.
On “Gangsta Prayer” featuring Trippie Redd, Stalley spits about his humble beginnings:
“Don’t forget that them projects is where they found me. I speak enlightened, but spent my life fightin’, more Malcom than King, cold-blooded, more winter than spring. Can’t be no victim of the venomous sting. From murder hornets in the human form, it’s bad enough we gotta escape these pigs in uniform.”
Stalley’s latest official LP, Reflection Of Self: The Head Trip, was released in November last year via Nature Sounds. Prior to that, his albums Ohio, New Wave, and Another Level were released in 2014 and 2017, respectively.
In an interview with REVOLT, the Ohio native reflected on his growth since his journey as an artist began, and also about suppressing some emotions due to societal pressures:
“It’s not that I didn’t know myself because I definitely know myself. It was more of trying to write for a bigger audience instead of just talking to the people who have been there [from the start] and supported me. I learned from that and grew from that. When you grow up and you’re a person of color, you’re always taught to be tough, never show your weaknesses, men don’t cry and there are so many things. You bottle up those things for so long because you feel like you’re going to be judged.”
Elsewhere in the interview, he speaks about his last encounters with the late Nipsey Hussle, and also about feeling more free as an artist.
