Stalley Raise Your Weapons
Maybach Music Group‘s Ohio representative Stalley cries out for action on the thought provoking, society questioning second single from his forthcoming still untitled mixtape “Raise Your Weapons”.

Written as a reaction to the complacency of his generation, the Block Beataz produced “Raise Your Weapons” calls attention to the constant fight for justice. “We recorded the song a year ago,” says Stalley. “We had a conversation about what’s going on in our lives and the lack of substance and activism in our community.”

The lyrics are a call to arms. A catalyst for turning complaints into a charge for what’s right. “They say I’m the last of a dying breed,” notes the rapper. “Someone who embodies the glories of success, but also embraces the failings of my path. This song is inspired by my own personal push forward, how it now parallels with larger societal trends, and a desire to want more for the people of this country.”
