Representing the South and pockets of the Midwest, Stalley’s Blue Collar Gang looks to prove their rap mettle with the release of BCG Algorithm Vol. 1.
The compilation project features the talents of Vada Azeem, Gerald Walker, Life Dutchee and Rockie Fresh.
“The stake that sticks up gets hammered down/The minute you don’t stand up you stand down/It’s always criticism when you stand out/But if life ever knocks you down hold ground/It’s what you make outta life’s lessons/You got ya sight and ya not breathless/Just stay firm on ya word and live thru this Tokyo proverb,” Stalley signaled on his Instagram, referencing the project’s anchor track.
