[MIXTAPE]: Casso – Skinny Nigga With A Gold Chain

Boston emcee Casso announced early yesterday that he’d be dropping a mixtape later in the day. The catch? Each of the ten tracks dropped one-by-one every hour on the hour starting at 2 PM, concluding at 11.

The unorthodox release of the Skinny Nigga With A Gold Chain EP generated a significant amount of buzz throughout the course of yesterday, and the conversation has only continued to escalate all day today. Though the EP is only available for streaming via YouTube at the moment (above), fans can expect a remastered, downloadable version to surface in the coming weeks.

I just listened through for the first time, and I’m impressed with the project’s cohesiveness and content alike. It’s certainly a dark journey, but it’s real, and it’s got something everyone can connect with. Guided by carefully crafted, brooding production from a slew of beatmakers including Humbeats, Potent George and SKI, SNWAGC tackles heavy subject matter, for the most part, and provides new and existing listeners alike insight into the mind of Casso as he moves forward in his young career.

It’s a short project, but an enjoyable one, and the features from Rams, Q Major and Potent George round out the experience nicely. The latter two appear on “I’m The Man Now,” one of my personal favorite tracks that acts as a jolt of energy with an edge halfway through.

Stream the tape above, and stay tuned for more.
