South Carolina born, Florida raised and now Brooklyn resident member of the four man team The Soulstice, Lafayette Stokely decided to give it a turn as being a solo wordsmith. Starting at the age of 17 Lafayette began to develop his own skills as a storyteller stemming from his affinity with the storytelling styles of artist like J.Cole, Nas, and Jay Electronica. First showcasing his rhymes in a joint project with The Soulstice titled “MF Wonders”, followed by “Life’s journey,” a solo effort by Stokely that’s everything the title entails, a brief insight into the life of Stokely with stories about his relocation to New York, pressures to be successful in his craft, and his general perspective on life as a whole. With the next installment of Life’s Journey soon to come, and Stokely now living in New York, it’s safe to say we have yet to hear the best of Lafayette’s storytelling.
