Stalley Records Music for ESPN

Stalley is about to become the newest member of the ESPN team.

The up-and-coming Ohio-bred spitter recently teamed with producer Kokayi to record ten sports-themed tracks for the network. After an ESPN employee saw Stalley’s “Babblin” video on MTVu, they reached the bearded wordsmith, who then traveled to ESPN’s Connecticut offices for a day. Once the network found out that Stalley is a true hoops head—and a former college basketball player—the partnership came to life.

At the moment, it is unclear which songs will be used for what programming on ESPN, which has multiple channels within the network.

Stalley will be dropping his latest mixtape, Lincoln Way Nights: Intelligent Trunk Music, on at 1 p.m. tomorrow (February 8). Check out the tracklisting here. —Adam Fleischer
