The fourth quarter of music this year should be pretty stacked. With Big K.R.I.T.’s Cadillactica on the horizon and Logic’s Under Pressure already receiving pretty good reception, it’s now Stalley’s turn to take the sound he and producer Rashad created on Intelligent Trunk Muzik and stretch it beyond on OHIO.

A producer/emcee combination that was just too good to ignore and leave in the past, the duo are chiefly responsible for Stalley’s most known work and the sound fans wish he’d stick to and expand upon. OHIO is Rashad & Stalley doing their best to bring the bass pumping sound from a 2011 fave into a 2014 landscape with features from De La Soul, Rick Ross, August Alsina, Ty Dolla $ign and more.

Talking to Stalley earlier this month, he was excited for the album as much as some of his diehard fans were. A high quality of work had been missing from the rapper’s catalog. Here’s to hoping OHIO resets that number. Purchase it now on iTunes and stream the album for free via Spotify.
