Rob $tone is an emerging rapper outta San Diego, CA. He recently released a music video for “Rolling $tone”, a dope song off his “I’m Almost Ready” mixtape. The David Camarena-directed video captures $tone chillin’ in his city, with his homeboys by his side. Other scenes capture $tone performing on stage, in front of a packed house.
The release of “Rolling $tone” comes under tight scrutiny, because it includes a Rolling Stones’ sample, which $tone addressed in a public statement via YouTube.
“Before I get sued for this, I just want to say that I had never before heard the Rolling Stones sample used in this song until after I had already recorded to the instrumental and titled the song, ‘Rolling $tone’. Crazy, right?”
“Anyways, my label didn’t want me to put this out to avoid legal issues with it, but we put too much into this video to never release it. It really showcases the beauty of my hometown, San Diego, CA. Hopefully The Rolling Stones do not file a lawsuit or a cease and desist order on this song because it was an honest coincidence. On top of that my 1207 brother, Malik burgers, completely replayed the guitar in his own way! It was dope. Anyways, enjoy!” – Rob $tone
