Video: J. Stalin & Dj.Fresh – “Bubble Gum Candy Fruit” ft. Beeda Weeda & June

The West Oakland Rapper Shows Off His Bright Colored Coupe Collection in a Drone-Shot Video, Premiered by XXL


Critical Praise:

“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

The Video:

Gathering his car collection and a crew of models, Stalin lives large in Bubble Gum Candy Fruit,” his latest video.
