He left home to play Division 1 basketball in Michigan, injuring himself shortly after. That setback brought him to New York to play for Long Island University, but a second injury derailed his athletic plans and he changed his focus to music. In 2008, he connected with Ohio’s own, Terry Urban on the mixtape release “Goin’ Ape.” He also toured as an opening act for Mos Def. His second project MadStalley: The Autobiography brought attention to his transition from small time griot to rap star. He’s since worked with brands like Nike, ESPN, 10Deep and Mishka. Currently, Stalley has been working with Creative Control, the media collective associated with Dame Dash, DD172 and fellow rap artist Curren$y. His recent release titled Lincoln Way Nights (Intelligent Trunk Music), he carefully illustrates a typical night out on his popular hometown strip. He’s appeared on BET’s 106 and Park as a part of the Music Matters campaign and premiered his video for “SLAPP” on the countdown.
