Video:Freeway and Stalley Rapping Over Takeover in Columbus,Ohio

YouTube Preview Image
Can I kick it?

ROC we running this rap shit…now…this is purely speculation but…After Dipset came and dissed Kanye over his own beat last week.
And awhile back Jay-z came out with a Creative Control mixtape which raised eyebrows because thats the name of Dame Dash’s video brand. This came on the heels of Dame Dash boasting he was going to restart Roc-a-Fella records..
Like I said this is speculation but Freeway and Stalley are both down with Dame Dash so perhaps this a foreshadowing of a another Dame vs. Jay campaign?

Both Curren$y’s Pilottalk and Ski Beatz, 24 Hour Karate School(which dropped today minus any Mos Def involvement ) are said to be on Roc-a-Fella but the spine on the CD says DD172. So Dame Dash hasn’t fully jumped in the Roc-a-Fella takeover, yet.
My guess is that they are gonna wait for the new Dipset album to do that.
Is this foreshadowing or just rappers having fun with an instrumental?
In fairness beyond a reasonable doubt it has to be noted that neither rapper dissed Jay.
And i bumped into Free, Stalley and Rashad after the show, and beef with Jay was not the topic of conversation at all.
Stalley’s main concern was that it would be noted that he was freestyling and not kicking a written.
And Rashad and I just talked about him, and Stalley’s upcoming (((ITM))) release.
But Free did have everyone throw the ROC sign up. And it wasn’t for Jay-z’s Roc Nation label.
Whatever the case, here are Stalley and Freeway freestyling over Jay-z’s infamous diss cut “Takeover” here in Columbus,Ohio.

Or maybe none of this means anything, and the true Columbus story is that Freeway is shouting out both ROC and RSE(Rhymesayers Entertainment) home of the Al Shepard.

This is a Stalley video for his song S.T.A.L.L.E.Y. off the upcoming Ski Beatz Mixtape, 24 Hour Karate School which also features Mos Def, the Cool Kids, Jay Electronica, Curren$y, Jim Jones,Nicole Wray and more, out March 30th. This video has various people rocking Stalley’s trademark beard.

No he isn’t from Philly.

Stalley is from Massillon. Thinks about that for a second. He has already dropped a jazzhop mixtape called Mad Stalley:The Autobiography that would make Scott Storch beg to rejoin the Organix Roots and not be funny and has a bunch of projects with whose who in modern Low End Theory land on deck.

But he isn’t from Philly or Queens.
Fucking Massillon.

Stalley is performing in Austin for South By Southwest this year:

March 18-SXSW Urb Magazine Showcase Light Bar,

March 19-SXSW  Last Rights Showcase Firehouse Lounge .

March 20-SXSW Kenny Dorham’s Backyard.

For this interview, we talked Massillon sports, Hip Hop, Islam, Ohio weather, Jamaica, J-Rawls, and mainly how the fuck someone goes from small-town Ohio to being Dame Dash’s latest discovery. You should read it. He is from Massillon and is in a rap group with Mos Def, Curren$y, and Jay Electronica called Central Edge Territory.

Have you been to Massillon?

ME:We are in Columbus, which is close to Massillon. I know you got you’re thing going on in Cleveland with Terry Urban and them. But I’m going to try to get Columbus up to speed. You grew up in Massilon your whole life?

Stalley:I grew up in Massillon until High School  I left Massillon when I went away to college That’s when I left.

So you played for the Massillon basketball team. Sports is big up there uh?

Yeah. Football is huge. As everyone in Ohio usually knows. If they do know about Massillon that’s what they know is football Continue reading
