J. Stalin puts the world on his shoulders in his new video 🌍
Standing at the vanguard of mob music for over a decade, J. Stalin exemplifies the dedication it takes to turn a wave into a movement.
Reasserting his status as one of the Bay’s biggest movers and shakers, Stalin continues to carry the scene in his new video for “World On My Shoulders”.
A highlight track from his recent project Prenuptial Agreement 2, “World On My Shoulders” finds Stalin reminiscing on the strength it takes to move masses: “Damn I still miss trapping with my brother/All night, counting money, laughing at the suckers.”
The video for “World On My Shoulders”, which quickly follows clips for project highlights like “Basic”, “To Do List”, and “Backwoods”, finds Stalin cruising around Oakland in a Beamer with the butterfly doors up, hopping out to reconnect with familiar faces, including his auntie, as he revels in his OG status.
“World On My Shoulders” is the latest video from 'Prenuptial Agreement 2', Stalin’s new album.
The sequel to the 2010 breakout project that made him a regional star, 'Prenuptial Agreement 2' is a showcase for Stalin’s raspy vocals, brutally honest lyrics, and peerless ability to navigate mob instrumentals.
Moving from love songs to hustlers' anthems and back with effortless ease, the album features production from Mob Music architects like The Mekanix, Clayton Williams, and Mike Made The 808s, plus younger beatmakers like Juneonnabeat.
Like the original, which brought guest spots from the likes of E-40 and The Jacka, 'Prenuptial Agreement' brings an eclectic cast of characters, from fellow Oaklanders like Philthy Rich, 22nd Jim, and Jane Handcock standing up for the 357, and street heroes from other cities, like Florida's Jackboy and Stockton's EBK Young Joc, who sound right at home.
J. Stalin is celebrating the success of 'Prenuptial Agreement 2' with the Livewire Reunion Tour, hitting cities across the West Coast.
The tour reunites the original Livewire Records crew, including Bay Area royalty Philthy Rich and Lil Blood.
The Livewire Reunion Tour hits Club Insomnia in Oakland on May 19th and May 20th.
Stay tuned for more announcements.
Loyal to the grind and his family, J. Stalin is building a legacy for himself and the Oakland scene he hails from.
With 'Prenuptial Agreement 2', the proudly independent artist cements his rightful place in Bay Area history.
