Casso has been one of the rawest rappers out of Boston for years, and over the course of the past six months, he’s made that clearer than ever. Aside from Cousin Stizz’s “Shoutout” (which Casso pays homage to here in “I Am The Connect”), he’s responsible for one of the hottest singles out of Boston in “For The Loot.”
That came out in December, but his latest, “I Am The Connect,” is another powerful, bellowing statement from the 23-year-old emcee whose Days Before The Roc project (potentially set to arrive this month) is growing more highly anticipated every day.
This joint features fellow Boston mainstay King Kassanova and is powered by production from Roni Bugodi in addition to a huge, tuned hook and dynamic rhymes from Casso. It’s a statement record, something we’re becoming awfully accustomed to hearing from one of Boston’s most promising young talents, and a sign that the best is most definitely yet to come.
