On November 29, hip-hop veteran Stalley shared his new single “Bakery.” This marks the third single from his forthcoming album, Somebody Up There Loves Me, set to be released on December 6, 2022. The Ohio’s Blue Collar Gang emcee is known for his vicious wordplay and deadly flow. His latest track is no exception.  “You know all my struggles, you know where I come from, whatever it comes with, just know that I won’t run/I’m battling demons like I’ve been stuck in the dungeon/ You only get one bullet in me, I’m the top gun/Now ain’t no stoppin’ till the feds come knockin’ get the bread turn this bitch into a bakery.” On the B.A.M. produced record, Stalley delivers soulful vibes that feel warm and nostalgic. To understand Stalley’s achievements is to recognize his creative evolution. He has refined a natural musical fluidity and developed a sense of comfort in who he is.  Ahead of his album next month, I had the chance to interview Stalley to learn more about his latest album.

Rich Homie Quan Presents His New Album “Family & Mula – Reloaded”

By Tobbylola // 28 Nov 2022

If you know anything about the music scene in Atlanta, it’s that many new sounds were created in the thriving city over the years. Rich Homie Quan, also known as Dequantes Lamar, emerged on the scene in 2013 and developed a sound that would inspire artists for generations to come. Throughout his career, Quan has been nominated for Best New Artist and Rookie of the Year from BET, earned a spot on the 2014 XXL freshman class list, and went double platinum independently. While the platinum-selling rapper reached many milestones over the years, he is ready to reinvent himself after taking some time off to focus on what matters most. To celebrate his 33rd birthday, Rich Homie Quan released a new body of work titled Family & Mula, which features eight songs and a single feature from NoCap. This project gave listeners a glimpse of what Quan created during his downtime and how his music has changed due to fatherhood.   This month, I had the opportunity to speak with the Atlanta legend about the legacy he has built and what we can expect to come.

SoFaygo Interview: Respecting the Grind and the Evolution

By Lee Mcintosh // 23 Nov 2022

Photo Credit: Le3ay Studio As we’ve progressed through music, we have grown to see the many mediums that artists are using now to take their careers to the next level. We’ve seen artists get popular from Myspace and older social media platforms. Current social sites such as Instagram and TikTok play a huge factor in emerging artists as well. By far one of the most memorable moments in rap would be the rise of Soundcloud rap and the amazing talent that stemmed from it. Being able to watch artists like XXXTENTACION, Lil Uzi Vert, Playboi Carti, Trippie Redd and Lil Yacthy take that platform and completely skyrocket into fame was such an amazing sight to see. While each of these artists has their own respective art and their own craft, they all share one thing in common being the OG’s of the Soundcloud rap community. Here we are in 2022, and we are witnessing the new generation of artists who catch their big break from Soundcloud and take their career to the next level. Some of those names are SSG Kobe, Yeat, Ken Carson, and none other than SoFaygo. First blowing up in 2019 with his breakout single “Knock Knock”, …
