We love being introduced to new acts and today is a new day for some new music. Meet, a fun and talented group by the name of The Stonies. Based out of Marin County California, this hip hop group has diversity, skill, and flavor for all listeners. It’s hard not to like this group! So we got the opportunity to interview The Stonies. Here’s what we discussed. Check it out below.
Tell us about yourself and your music.
As a group we make fun dope party music while blowing trees. Cea$e aka Big Stonie makes content filled messages along with crafty lyrics. Hollywood Crook focuses his sound on commercial appeal. Money, weed and sexy ladies he is all about it. Morrocco is holding it down for the Brown Community with his Latin flow and stylish lyrics. Bishop Rocswell brings an East Coast swag, a deep voice and knowledge filled bars.
How would you describe your sound?
We would describe our sound as turnt, high energy, loud party music, good vibes, hella weed and having hella fun. We come to make money, smoke and party.
Talk about the experience making your song/mixtape.
We all are solo artist so we had to gel a bit when it came to the group atmosphere. We constantly bounced ideas off of one another during the writing process as we headed in the lab to create our self titled project “The Stonies”.
What are you currently working on? Any new projects? Shows?
We are currently pushing The Stonies album and focusing on our singles Hello, Rooftop, M.N.M.B. Cea$e put out his solo EP ” The Good Times” last year and is now working on videos. Hollywood Crook T just dropped his solo mixtape U Mad Bro? this January 2017 on www.datpiff.com. The crew is working on solo projects and we are also working on our 2nd group project “Stonified”.
What has been your biggest highlight in your music career this far?
Our biggest highlight is that we have a movement on our hands and our music is powerful and it continues to move fans. We keep bringing the noise at every event.

What’s one thing you have learned or discovered while being in the indie music scene/industry?
You have to have real grind. You really need a dedicated team because you have to follow up with a lot of connections. You must be driven and super hungry when it comes to reaching your goals. And you have to utilize all of your resources. You have to push the limit.
What can we expect from you in the future?
More money, more weed, more success, more hard work and more party music
