Video: Yung Mal – “Stay Down”
The Zone 6 Standout Flashes His Ice and His Ice-Cold Flow in His First New Video of 2021, With a Cameo From NLE Choppa
“After his rise to prominence through the duo Mal & Quill through the late 2010s, East Atlanta rapper Yung Mal has ventured off for some strong solo offerings, first with last year’s Iceburg and now with his latest 6 RINGS, a quick-hitting 12-track project full of rapid fire flows and strong instrumentals from producer Pyrex.” – HYPEBEAST
“Drenched in authenticity, New Orleans-born, Atlanta-bred rapper Yung Mal is looking like the next to blow out of the south.” – XXL
“The young ATL rapper has been making strides in his city as the next-up.” — HotNewHipHop
“Yung Mal is on a fast ascension through the industry.” — ELEVATOR
“One of the most promising rising artists…Mal consistently brings interesting and unique flows onto stellar production.” — Lyrical Lemonade
“Yung Mal has been the talk of the town in Atlanta” — Karen Civil
With a supernatural feel for rhythm and a devil-may-care demeanor, Yung Mal is ready to take the next step. Giving a glimpse of his hectic and high-flying lifestyle, Mal shares “Stay Down,” his new music video. Doing donuts around swirling flutes and insistent 808s, Mal shows off his rapidfire patter on the new track, occasionally switching to a cut-time triplet flow to pontificate about his problems and brag about his hard-earned riches: “Stay down, stay down, stay down, stay down/None of this sh*t did come overnight/I ran that sh*t all the way up from the ground/The bands don’t fit cause my pants too tight.” In the video, an effortlessly fly Mal shows off his ice and counts his cash as he throws down in Candler Park with his 1.5 Crew and other close friends including NLE Choppa.
“Stay Down” is Mal’s first video following a breakthrough 2020, featuring two high-octane collaborative projects with rising producers. Released in March, 6 Rings paired Mal with Pyrex Whippa. Sporting appearances from Lil Keed, Lil Gotit, and Doe Boy, 6 Rings received praise from publications like HYPEBEAST and XXL. Later in the year, Mal released Iceberg Sosa, produced in full by Memphis producer Sosa808 (Key Glock, G Herbo), which featured highlight video singles like “Hitstick” and “Own Drip.” Building a head of steam in 2021, Yung Mal looks to assume his rightful place among Atlanta’s trap elite.
Stay tuned for 1.5 Way or No Way, Mal’s next project, coming later this year.
