Maybach Music Group‘s resident Ohio native Stalley stopped by Shade 45’s Sway In the Morning radio program to plug his latest project, Savage Journey to the American Dream. But before he was allowed to do that, hosts Sway and Devi Dev subjected Stalley to their trademarked “5 Fingers of Death” freestyle challenge, where DJ Wonder provides five totally random beats (Hip-Hop and others) for the MC guest-of-the-moment to rhyme over. Preferring to spit a capella, Stalley tried to negotiate his way out of the five beats but was uniformly rebuffed by the show’s crew. House rules, homie.

In the second video, check Stalley discussing how he linked with MMG, advice from his CEO Rick Ross, how his English studies and reading help make him a better MC (take notes, silly rappers) and much more in the actual interview portion of the show.
