Cal Scruby – Stay Rich

Cal Scruby has been building the anticipation for his upcoming project, ‘Scrubby’ with freestyles “Game 6” and “Toy Box”, and last night the Ohio-based rapper released the first official music video off the mixtape that will be out on October 1st.

The song titled “Stay Rich” is Cal Scruby at his best. His raw flow is presented and delivered in a cool, yet original manner much like his previous music video “Fux With Me”, which garnered international attention, and was also featured on BBC Radio 1. “Stay Rich”, however, is a new approach for Cal and when matched with new style of trap production (done by Cincinnati-native Mac Niff), Cal thrives like never before. The music video which was directed by Milwaukee-based cinematographer Justin Clough and lends a unique listening experience capturing Cal’s satirical yet thoughtful bars in an entertaining fashion.

“Scrubby is the most personal project I have ever created,” said Scruby, whose previous album, Boy Genius, was released last year. “’Its real, transparent, honest, satirical, sometimes purposefully hypocritical… it’s about the inner conflict of any artist… the balance between making music that represents me and music that represents you… the label vs. independence… if you don’t listen to it all the way through, you may not understand it… but in that case, it’s not for you — open minds only”.
