Stalley continues to prove his place in hip-hop, tying together mainstream recognition with world class skills.
Hailing from Detroit, producer Apollo Brown has a nearly 15 year track record of classic album after classic album. Having worked with some of the most well-respected rappers on the planet, Apollo has made a name for himself worldwide.

Blacklight is now available at all DSP’s and is entirely produced by Apollo Brown and includes appearances from Joell Ortiz, Skyzoo and Omari Hardwick (better known as “Ghost” the protagonist from Power). In addition to releasing their new collaborative album, Apollo & Stalley also released a new visual for the album’s title track.
“This was the song that obviously inspired the title of the album. When you shine a Blacklight, you tend to illuminate things that you can’t see with the naked eye” Apollo Brown affirmed. “This metaphor speaks for you, others, and the world in general. Stalley effortlessly shines that UV all throughout the album.”
