Big bearded Massillon, OH spitter and recent Maybach Music signee Stalley drops a clip for the standout from his Lincoln Way Nights tape. With "Pound," producer Rashad breaks A Tribe Called Quest's "Midnight" down into its barest elements and Frankensteins it back into minimalist trunk music. The Southern connection in particular makes sense—Midnight Marauders had considerably more thump than most of the similarly revered golden age classics in its time. You might even swear Redman was inside the trunk. Or Lil Keke.
