Numerous trailblazers call Ohio home. The state boasts a musical lineage that includes artists as diverse as The O'Jays, Bootsy Collins, Roger Troutman, Heatwave, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, and Kid Cudi, most recently. Hailing from the tiny Ohio town of Massillon, Stalley proudly upholds that tradition of artistic innovation on his aptly titled full-length debut, Ohio. [Maybach Music Group/Atlantic Records].
"It's Intelligent Trunk Music," he proclaims. "It's got those big hooks and sounds that you can vibe to, but it's also very conceptual and lyrical. You can enjoy it in the car, in the club, or in your headphones. At the same time, I wanted to tell you a story and show you my life."
Stalley began independently releasing mixtapes in 2008 with Goin’ Ape and its 2009 follow-up MadStalley: The Autobiography, but his breakout tape was Lincoln Way Nights. From there, he personally touched down at hot spots all over the world including the 2010 Iron Mic Competition in Beijing, serving as a featured MC. BET named him a Music Matters artist, while his videos hit rotation on MTV Jams and 106&Park. As buzz grew, Rick Ross personally reached out, inviting him to join the Maybach Music Group family.
Dwight Grant, (born March 6, 1974), also known as Beanie Sigel, is an American rapper from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He is a former member/artist of Dame Dash Music Group and Roc-A-Fella Records where he had formed a close association with rappers Jay-Z, Freeway and other former and current artists on the Roc-A-Fella roster. His stage name comes from a street in South Philadelphia, the rapper's former stomping grounds where he worked alongside Senior Durham in the projects. He has sold more than two million albums worldwide. He decided to end his career in middle 2010 when he made his last song, "I Go Off" with 50 Cent who had signed Grant to his G-Unit Records label in 2009. In early 2011 Grant appeared in Travis Barker's album Give the Drummer Some, saying that it was the end of his career. In May 31, 2011 Grant apologized to his former boss Jay-Z. But in an interview with DJ Green Lantern, he said that he had never "apologized" to Jay-Z, and that he was still making music.
