Stik Figa – Holding Back Tears [Video]

Posted on June 8, 2017

Stik Figa is back with a new visual from his "Central Standard Time" album.

Says Stik Figa:

"'Holding Back Tears' is a song I wrote as a way to deal with the emotions of loss in the context of my personal experiences as a black man in America. The constant push and pull of what is considered acceptable versus how I feel, and making the right choices for my survival and being able to keep my conscious intact. I'm sure many can relate, so, I thought I would share, and be transparent about it all."

Stik Fifa feat. Chuuwee – Child’s Play [Audio x Download]

Posted on April 25, 2017

For professional MCs like Stik Figa and Chuuwee, rapping is child's play. The two rappers team up with classic hiphop producer Gensu Dean for a fiery new bonus cut. Some may recognize the beat from Gensu Dean's recent Rhythm Roulette appearance on Mass Appeal. The beat was frankly too good not to create a track on - so Stik & Mr. Chu decided to lay some no non-sense street gospel for everybody from small towns to big cities. Enjoy and download for free.

Stik Figa – Central Standard Time [Album Stream]

Posted on January 27, 2017

Every rapper is a struggle rapper. The degree of adversity changes from one tax bracket to the next, but no contract comes with immunity. The pursuit of happiness lasts as long as you do. Stik Figa has been trying to tell you for years.

"Central Standard Time", the Topeka, KS native’s second official Mello Music Group release, is a meditation on struggles new, old, and eternal. Stik Figa’s rhymes remain intricate yet accessible, the words interlocking to create fresh meanings. Every verse displays his hard-won honesty. Though the pains are personal, the moments are strikingly familiar. These are the songs you play when you’re tired of being told to turn up, when you avoid your bank statement like the plague, when you still can’t shake the first time someone called you “nigger,” when another relationship has wrecked your life.

With production from venerated heavyweights like Nottz, Exile, Black Milk, and Apollo Brown, there is never a stale loop or drum pattern. Beats crafted to fry subwoofers are offset by those warm and poignant. L’Orange produced lead single “Cold,” deftly straddles that divide. Over cavernous drums and a soul-stirring sample, Stik Figa indicts posturing trap rappers with searing wit.

When he’s not dismantling the unoriginal alone, Stik Figa enlists indie luminaries Elzhi, Homeboy Sandman, and Quelle Chris. And on album closer “The Git Down,” he macks alongside Bay Area legend Rappin' 4-Tay. With each feature, the results are even more arresting.

Ultimately, "Central Standard Time" is a reminder that sharing our burdens helps others do the same. It’s rap as therapy, the words written to move forward. Listen and do likewise. Struggle waits for no man.

Stik Figa – Cold [Video]

Posted on January 26, 2017

"The video for 'Cold' is directed by Morgan Cooper and is ultimately a walk through my stomping grounds in Topeka, Kansas. A town of unspoken divisions and unassuming landmarks. From my childhood hangouts to the grocery store where my mother used to ask me to run and grab cornmeal, to the corner of 11th and Jewell in the central Topeka neighborhood we used to hang out at after school. Everyone in the video is an actual friend of mine. I wanted to take everyone to the Kansas I know, hoping to scrub the Hollywood cliches of yellow brick roads, and show you the actual people who love their pit bull and car, just like you." - Stik Figa
