Fuk that
Critical Praise:

“As the owner of Livewire Records, West Oakland rapper J Stalin provides a place for the growth of incredibly creative, meat-and-potatoes Bay Area hip-hop. The label hosts gritty rubbery street music that navigates crack dealing devastation and grounded partying tracks with equal aplomb, with artists that range from Stalin himself to MCs like Shady Nate and Philthy Rich among others.” – SPIN

J Stalin pushes the envelope by vividly reiterating his Mob Bay Area persona and turmoil of his harsh upbringing.” – XXL

The Video:

What do you get when you get two Bay Area music legends on one track? Well, that’s easy; you get a slappin’, pimpery, dope-as-hell video. Cultivator of the Bay Area’s underground street-centric “mob music” master J Stalin and Bay boss Too $hort go in on “Fuk That,” the first single for Stalin’s recently released SID: Shining in Darkness album. Premiered by The FADER, the song screams Bay Area in its production with big bass synths, high-hat rolls, and reverb-heavy claps. The two MCs don’t mess around with their money, as J Stalins shouts, “I don’t care if you owe me a dollar n*gga fuck that / think I’m playin’ with my money, I’ll be right back” while Too $hort booms, “Fuck the economy, fuck hard times, fuck whatchu goin’ through, give me all mine.”

J Stalin’s SID, was premiered early on SPIN prior to its April 22nd release. The album’s second single, “Another Quelo (Remix),” features Joey Fatts and premiered on Noisey. In a review of the album, XXL says “J Stalin pushes the envelope by vividly reiterating his Mob Bay Area persona and turmoil of his harsh upbringing.” Aware of his prolific music career, HipHopDX recently asked J Stalin to share his tips for maintaing success after 13 albums, which you can read here
