"Stereo" is one of MGK's older songs, being previously featured on his 2010 mixtape: Lace Up!. It was released on September 20, 2012 with an accompanying music video, on his Vevo account. On his Twitter account, MGK stated that the music video was shot and finished over a year before it was officially released but wanted to wait for his upcoming album's release date to be closer. The track is featured on Lace Up - The Prelude, an EP released exclusively for Sony's Music Unlimited service. Lace Up - The Prelude was released on October 2, 2012.

Music video

The video was released through MGK's Vevo account to YouTube on September 20, 2012, and features a cameo appearance from Alex Fitts. The video, switches between MGK either riding in a custom painted tourbus also occupied by what appears to be prostitutes, or with a girlfriend whose father dislikes him, or rapping in an empty room. The second scenario portrays the songs lyrics; MGK is deeply in love with a girl but her father, a police officer, dislikes him and will go to great lengths to keep them apart. While the first scenario displays shots of MGK running from the police or him and Alex Fitts in the tourbus with all the other girls. The third scenario is shown after MGK is chased away by the police. The first and second scenarios eventually coincide with one another at the end of the video.
