Video: J Stalin – “Count On 1 Hand” ft. Jane Handcock
The Two Oakland Natives Glide Over Glistening Production from The Mekanix as They Hole Up in a Mansion in the Latest Video from Stalin’s Prenuptial Agreement 2 Album
“Vibrant and exploding with personality, J. Stalin is a knowing, mischievous wise-ass whose charisma hangs between unapologetic cockiness and the ability to cut through rap’s fantasy-addled drug fetishism and provide sobering reality.” – Pitchfork
“One of Oakland’s illest MCs” – XXL
“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
“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
Moving mountains with his mob music, Bay Area legend J. Stalin is happy to reap the fruits of his labor. Reflecting on his legacy with the help of fellow Oakland native Jane Handcock, Stalin shares “Count On 1 Hand,” his latest video. Embracing his status as an OG, Stalin dwells on the benefits he’s earned after a lifetime of hard work, including more time with his kids and the resources to buy a whole bar when he wants a drink. Complementing the glistening production from The Mekanix, Oakland native Jane Handcock sings about the comforts afforded by financial success on her hook. In the video, Stalin and Jane Handcock relax in a Bay Area mansion, as they enjoy the luxurious lives they’ve attained.
“Count On 1 Hand” is the latest video from Stalin’s recent album Prenuptial Agreement 2, and it follows videos for album highlights like “The Boss,” “Basic,” “To Do List,” and “Backwoods.” The sequel to the 2010 breakout project that made him a regional star, Prenuptial Agreement 2 is a showcase for Stalin’s raspy vocals, brutally honest lyrics, and peerless ability to navigate mob instrumentals. Like the Pitchfork-acclaimed original, which brought guest spots from the likes of E-40 and The Jacka, Prenuptial Agreement brings an eclectic cast of characters, from fellow Oaklanders like Philthy Rich, 22nd Jim, and Jane Handcock standing up for the 357, and street heroes from other cities, like Florida’s Jackboy and Stockton’s EBK Young Joc, who sound right at home.
J. Stalin is celebrating the success of Prenuptial Agreement 2 with the Livewire Reunion Tour, hitting cities across the West Coast. The tour reunites the original Livewire Records crew, including Bay Area royalty Philthy Rich and Lil Blood. The Livewire Reunion Tour hits Club Insomnia in Oakland on May 19th and May 20th.
Loyal to the grind and his family, J. Stalin is building a legacy for himself and the Oakland scene he hails from. With Prenuptial Agreement 2, the proudly independent artist cements his rightful place in Bay Area history. Stay tuned for more announcements.
