Stalley "Hercules" (Video)

About ten years ago, we used to frequent a hole-in-the-wall bar/coffee shop to catch a three-man jazz band perform (our homie was the host), with novice and seasoned poets and singer/songwriters mixed in during the set. Part Love Jones-esque Sanctuary and part Nuyorican Soul Cafe, the place packed down every Wednesday til the wee hours of the morning, and anyone who was willing to spit was provided a mic. If we close our eyes and listen to Stalley, it feels like we're there. The mellowness of his tracks melded together with the forcefullness of his lyrics are a viable match for some of the best up-and-coming and established artists. We can't wait to hear Lincoln Way Nights, coming soon.
