Beanie Sigel/Stalley/DJ Eso/Woulf/Zeil

When: Sat., April 29, 9 p.m. 2017

A member of Maybach Music Group, Rick Ross’s always salient crew of troublemakers, Stalley hits the Grog Shop stage as he rounds off his Midwestern tour. Stalley’s sprawling discography has seen collaborations with a blue chip collection of backpackers and boom-bappers, crafting a distinctly midwestern feel that evokes languid summer nights, front porch stoops, and candy-painted Chevrolets. The Massilon-bred MC is entrenched in the influences of his home state, titling his debut album Ohio and continually reaffirming the Bone-Thugzian city/country duality. Stalley’s self-proclaimed “intelligent trunk music” sounds, as critic David Jeffries commented, like Houston icons “UGK were now running the Buckeye State.” While Stalley has simmered just below the mainstream like a Curren$y or Big K.R.I.T., he’s always holding a spot as your favorite rapper’s favorite rapper. Ex-Roc-A-Fella icon Beanie Sigel co-headlines, bringing a raw, veteran rasp that’s been a throughline since his late 90s collaborations with Jay-Z. (Neil)
