Rapper Stoner G releases new single 'Junkie'

The rap artist known as Stoner G has released his latest official single, “Junkie.” The track has been proudly published on the 100 Entertainment LLC independent music label without the financial or managerial support of the corporate music industry. With a deep foundation on rolling, booming bass and honest, direct lines and rhymes, “Junkie” by Stoner G is a modern rap anthem fans of the genre will turn all the way up.

Stoner G cites as main musical influences Master P, No Limit Family, the Hot Boy$ (Lil Wayne, B.G., Juvenile and Turk) Soulja Slim, UGK, 8Ball & MJG, and Tupac Shakur.

That Stoner G names the Hot Boy$ as important to him is indicative of his own style and tone, both of which are eyeballs-deep in the same sound that brought the world Cash Money Records from New Orleans. It comes as no surprise to rap fans hearing “Junkie” for the first time that Stoner G's music comes from Baton Rouge's hip-hop hotbed of Scotlandville.

But there's more than just rap in Stoner G's music.

“When I say am a fan of music,” writes Stoner G, “no matter the genre – if it's hot, it's hot, and I'm bumping it.”

When he's asked to describe how he came to write his own music, Stoner G can pin the time down almost exactly.

“To be honest,” he writes, “I was sitting in my room praying for a way to take care of my family and it came to me in a dream. The next morning I woke up writing.”

This kind of earnestness is largely what lyrics by Stoner G are all about. His phrases are true, direct, and unabashed. He talks straight and puts his words to beats that are equally to the point.

So what's his new single about?

“The message behind my single,” he writes, “is basically about how ambitious I am about getting money like a junkie tries to satisfy their next fix, and I'm sure some folks elsewhere would agree they're the same.”

Friends and fans of Stoner G describe him as “a very laid-back and quiet type of guy.” Even the artist himself admits that “expressing myself through music will be a real shock to some.”

Still, he's one of the more outspoken rappers to release music in 2015, and this belies his otherwise mellow nature.

“I have no point to prove,” says Stoner G. “I've got no macho man complex. My music speaks from the heart and spirit. I plan to share my and the stories of others to the world.”

“Junkie” from Stoner G on 100 Entertainment is available online worldwide.
