Video: J Stalin & Too Short Shine Amidst Darkness in "Fuk That"

FADER PREMIERE

J Stalin talks a big talk. He adopted vicious dictator Joseph Stalin's name because "he was short like me, but he was always smashing on everybody," the rapper comments in a recent interview, lending context when he promises I don't care if you owe me a dollar nigga fuck that/think I'm playing bout my money? I'll be right back. Too $hort pushes further their economic platform: Fuck the economy, fuck hard times, fuck what you going through, gimme all mines. The Mekanikz-produced beat is traditional hyphy fare--a bit bright and bouncy for lyrics this bleak, but that may be why Stalin's full-length album is called Shining in Darkness. You can cop it on iTunes and Amazon now.
