As someone who has harnessed the Internet’s capacity to distribute music and help build a career, Stalley’s very much in tune with the way listeners today gobble up new songs and mixtapes by the hour. So even though his highly-anticipated new project Savage Journey… dropped less than a week ago, Stalley isn’t taking any chances with keeping his music buzzing in the public consciousness.
Cue the video for “Everything New,” the Chad Hugo-produced first single off the mixtape. From the sounds of things, Stalley doesn’t just like his clothes and jewelry brand new, but his music too: the track is decidedly more grimey than the laid-back rider music that characterized much of last year’s Lincoln Way Nights. The video, directed by Rik Cordero, is a largely by-the-numbers affairs, with Stalley black hoodied-out in a drop-top Jag. If nothing else, it makes for a decent visual representation of Stalley’s brand of high-minded, street-anchored music.
