The Oakland Veteran and Entrepreneur Shares the Latest Video from the Upcoming Gas Nation 2, Out October 27th                                                                                                                                                                                                              


Critical Praise:

“As the owner of Livewire Records, West Oakland rapper J Stalin provides a place for the growth of incredibly creative, meat-and-potatoes Bay Area hip-hop. The label hosts gritty rubbery street music that navigates crack dealing devastation and grounded partying tracks with equal aplomb, with artists that range from Stalin himself to MCs like Shady Nate and Philthy Rich among others.” – SPIN

“J Stalin pushes the envelope by vividly reiterating his Mob Bay Area persona and turmoil of his harsh upbringing.” – XXL

“This is what Stalin does: he takes things–sounds, human beings, grocery stores–and warps them into something extraterrestrial. It’s eerie, but you’re dancing anyway.”Passion of the Weiss

The Video:

Delving deep within himself for a intimate look at his relationship with the streets, Oakland hardhead J. Stalin shares “In My Feelings,” his latest video. Flashing an impassioned sing-song flow, Stalin recounts the ups and downs of his life on the streets, apologizing to his mother for the things he did while trying to provide for his family. In the video, Stalin ruminates in his mansion, counting cash and dipping in his pool, demonstrating his boundless charisma with expressive facial contortions. Premiered by Dirty Glove Bastard, “In My Feelings” is the latest release from Gas Nation 2, Stalin’s upcoming album, following Battery Acid,” the spacious and mob-flavored opening track for the album, premiered last month by The Boombox.

The sequel to 2008’s Gas Nation, Stalin’s first album recorded for Mac Dre’s Thizz EntertainmentGas Nation 2 finds the veteran rapper in a less boastful and more contemplative mood, as he deeply explores his personal life with detailed street tales. Released in 2008, Gas Nation found J. Stalin in a vastly different stage in life–hustling on the streets to make ends meet, packing a gun (or “gas” in Oakland slang) every day, and caring for his 12-year-old sister after his mom moved to Las Vegas. Fast-forward 10 year later, J. Stalin is now an established rapper and a legitimate business owner, managing the catalogs of 10 artists on his Livewire label, and opening two profitable barber shops. For J. Stalin, the original Gas Nation was the beginning of his evolution into a unique artist and the start of his transformation from a lawbreaker to an upstanding member of his community. With Gas Nation 2, Stalin revisits the mindset of his younger self with the wisdom and perspective of his current self, creating a moody and thought-provoking collection of well-crafted rap songs. Featuring appearances from Berner, Philthy Rich, Lil Blood, Shady Nate, Lazy Boy, Joseph Kay, JuneOnnaBeat, KD, AK-47, and others, Gas Nation 2 releases on October 27th.
