Stalley Prepping Album For Second Quarter, Wiz Khalifa And Omarion On Deck Too
Stalley hosted a dinner party at a restaurant in New York City last night, celebrating the release of his recent Honest Cowboy EP, which dropped September 17. The EP, his first retail project since signing to Maybach Music Group in 2011, was a 7-track update on his August mixtape of the same name and included three new previously-unreleased tracks that did not appear on his last tape.
At the event, Stalley was in a jovial mood, and told XXL that his debut album was on course to drop in the second quarter of 2014, with other mixtapes or EPs that may be scheduled in the months prior to the project's release. Stalley told XXL in August that he had, "three albums worth of material," or around 100 songs, already recorded, but said last night he was going to head back into the studio later this month to work on more new material for his debut. He'll also be dropping a number of videos—with his solo track off MMG's Self Made Vol. 3, "Coupes & Roses," and "Samson," his ode to the power of his beard, set for a treatment—as well as a handful of additional tracks from his Honest Cowboy releases.
Omarion is also gearing up to release his own Maybach debut around February, according to Atlantic reps, with a mixtape coming in the next few weeks while he continues to work his own Self Made Vol. 3 single, the Fabolous and Pusha T-assisted "Know You Better." And Wiz Khalifa has been in the studio working on Blacc Hollywood, his upcoming fifth solo album, which is tentatively slated for the end of the year. The recently-married man was jsut featured on Leon Thomas' new single "Hello How Are You" and made an appearance in the video for Mike WiLL Made It's debut track "23" alongside Miley Cyrus and Juicy J. He's also said recently that he's got tracks with Miley and Adele on his album.
