Karmaloop TV’s “Sweat The World” series has released a video featuring Stalley [Maybach Music recording artist] and Jonathan Mannion [photographer]. This is the first that I’ve heard of Mannion, I guess I’ve been sleepin’.
But it is NOT the first that I’ve heard about Stalley. Last year while watching an H2TV music mix I heard Stalley for the first time. Now I’m starting to feel like I was late in the game on that one. Now, everytime I watch a Stalley interview I realize that he has put in alot of work to get where he is [he’s currently signed to Maybach Music Group].
Stalley humbly reminds the interviewer that being signed is just the start. He intends to pursue Grammies and other honors. He doesn’t want to “sit on the bench.” Stalley also sites Mos Def [Yasiin Bey] as a major inspiration to get into the studio and work.
