The Ohio native spoke with AllHipHop.com about his decision to not take on the beefs of Ross, Meek, and Wale. According to Stalley, he still represents MMG, but the “Boomin” rhymer does not see the need to jump into situations that do not directly involve him.
“I think everybody who’s seen me over the years with MMG – I’ve always been one who stays to myself,” said Stalley. “This is not a choice that I make. It’s just who I am. I’m still with the family. I’m still part of it, but I’ve always walked to the beat of my own drum.”
He added, “I’m not into those type of games. I don’t got no problems with nobody. I don’t try to make issues with anyone. I just stay to myself. I stay out the way and let them move how they move.”
Stalley also addressed Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s plan to ban Muslims from entering the United States. As a follower of Islam, Stalley takes issue with the billionaire business magnate targeting a particular religion.
“For [Trump] to say that he wants to ban, kick out, or not allow Muslims into this country, it’s just blasphemy. Muslims have helped build this country. Some of the most powerful people have been American Muslims,” stated Stalley. “It’s sad to have somebody that ignorant be a voice for people to actually rally behind what he’s saying and take his message serious.”
