Stalley began independently releasing mixtapes in 2008 with 'Goin' Ape' and its 2009 follow-up 'Mad Stalley: The Autobiography,' but his breakout tape was 'Lincoln Way Nights.' From there, he personally touched down at hot spots all over the world including the 2010 Iron Mic Competition in Beijing, serving as a featured MC. BET named him a Music Matters artist, while his videos hit rotation on MTV Jams and 106&Park. As buzz grew, Rick Ross personally reached out, inviting him to join Maybach Music Group and the rest was history. His catalog continued to grow as he released classic mixtapes in 'Savage Journey To The American Dream' and 'Honest Cowboy' featuring the hit collaboration with Rick Ross "Swangin." His debut studio album, 'Ohio,' an ode to his home state, was met with great fanfare as it featured artists such as Ross, August Alsina, Ty Dolla $ign and more.

Growing up in a city of 30,000, the rapper gravitated towards music at a very young age, immersing himself in multiple genres. His grandmother would clean the house to country songs playing on Massillon's sole radio station, while he would spin everything from Nas and Outkast to Bruce Springsteen and Travis Tritt in his bedroom. As a result of those diverse influences, he developed an inimitable style.

"It's Intelligent Trunk Music," he proclaims. "It's got those big hooks and sounds that you can vibe to, but it's also very conceptual and lyrical. You can enjoy it in the car, in the club, or in your headphones. At the same time, I wanted to tell you a story and show you my life."

Stalley's latest project, 'Saving Yusuf,' is available for download now.
Beanie Sigel
Beanie Sigel
He is Dwight Grant, a.k.a. Beanie Sigel, the ultra-talented namesake son of Philadelphia's hard-knock Sigel Street and the emcee who has stood the test of time because of one thing, his timeless, effortless skills on the mic.

Some say Beanie's back. But, was he ever missing from a somewhat lacking Rap landscape that wouldn't be quite the same without him?

Setbacks are a reality of life, but what's true always exists - Beanie Sigel refuses to be overlooked or outdone by his competition. He's built his name on dominating tracks, collaborating with the greats and just being himself. And he's not done yet.

To know Beanie Sigel is to travel back to his neighborhood where he grew up in the best of times and the worst of times, an existence filled with family, friends, Islam, music, hustling, girls and the typical libations of the lifestyle.

But as a youth his outside world was channeling inward, meshing with an intellect that allowed him to mix the clever with the brazen, the passionate with the poetic, and the gully with the grime. That he survived the negativity of his urban environment is a wonder. That he made it to the top of the Hip-Hop world on sturdy emceeing with a unique and sought-after flow is no wonder.

"It'll take a quarter key/ to survive in my game..."

Philadelphia's underground Hip-Hop scene was infatuated with Beanie Sigel early on. It was the 90s, and Rap had grown into a commodity where his rare wit, standout cadence and street sensibilities couldn't be ignored. He bullied the mic from the start, generating a reputation for powerful punch-lines and a descriptive delivery that left witnesses mesmerized.

Along the way, he rubbed elbows and traded verses with rising local stars like The Roots while cultivating his own crew, State Property, a collective of some of Philadelphia's finest underground Hip-Hop artists including Emilio Sparks, Freeway, Young Chris, and Peedi Crakk.

"You know how Mac come through/ on the club tip..."

Beanie Sigel would eventually rap his way into the spotlight via a highly publicized co-signing between Roc-A-Fella Records and Def Jam. Jay-Z, whose career was simultaneously launching into the next stratosphere, was quick to recognize Beanie's value to the team and the overall Rap game. Arguably, Jay-Z made some of his most memorable music and live appearances alongside the Philly emcee.

It was evident from the start that Beanie Sigel's profitability reached far beyond the recording booth where he has collaborated with countless industry giants including Scarface, Jay-Z, Eve, Snoop Dogg, R Kelly, 50 Cent and beyond. With State Property by his side, Beanie Sigel has starred in numerous films from the group's hugely successful movie franchise which to date has generated over $130 million at the box office and $1 million in DVD sales. He also established the State Property clothing line which ranked as one of the top million-plus, urban fashion lines when it debuted.

"I can feel it in the air/ I can hear it in your voice..."

Setbacks are a reality of life and by the mid-2000s internal differences eventually led Beanie Sigel to leave Roc-A-Fella along with others from the label. Yet he continued to record, releasing heavy-hitting Hip-Hop solo classics such as "The Solution," "The Broad Street Bully" and" The Roc Boys" with State Property. A subsequent stint behind bars may have taken away precious time, however, it left Beanie with a renewed sense of being, new material for recording, a book concept and a voice that wouldn't and couldn't be silenced.

"Guess who's bizz-ack?"

Game recognizes game, and in early 2012 Chris Schwartz, founder and CEO of the original Ruffhouse Records, home to The Fugees, Ms. Lauryn Hill, Wyclef, Cypress Hill, Kriss Kross and Nas, to name a few, came calling on Beanie Sigel. A distribution deal brokered by Schwartz with EMI has left Beanie with unprecedented ownership and artistic control over his own material and that of his loyal State Property family.

Says Schwartz of the new venture, "I only want to work with career artists who meet a certain criteria of being self-contained." I consider myself a facilitator in that regard. Beanie Sigel/State Property is undoubtedly one of Hip-Hop's hottest franchises."

Beanie Sigel's new album, "This Time" is slated for a August 28, 2012 release.

DJ D Mil
D.Mil is the direct link to St. Paul's 20-year-old Hip Hop scene. Miller's older brother Jim was a break dancer with the St. Paul Wild Style in the E'80s, part of the b-boy street culture. Born into a single parent household on St. Paul's often wild and impoverished east side. Money was usually tight, but big brother Jim's classic Rap tastes, which included Run DMC, the Fat Boys, helped fill the voids as David, and Twin brother Edde followed Jim around the Twin Cities pioneering Hip Hop scene. Hip Hop and Music has been a part of my life as long as I can remember, D.Mil stated. Tragedy struck the family when D.Mil's brother, Jim, was killed in a car accident at the age of 19. Maybe to keep the memory of his brother alive or out of his growing talent as a rap writer and DJ, or both, D.Mil scraped together enough money in 1994 to buy his own turntable's and start his vinyl collection. It wasn't long before he was cutting with the best of the local DJs and attracting high caliber MCs.

His twin brother Edde still helps out the group with booking and promotion, For both, it's a legacy they're willing to continue whole-heartedly.
