Ca$his is a Chicago born & California raised rapper that came up as a member of The Renegadez. However, he‘d eventually sign to Shady Records as a solo act in 2006 & drop his debut EP The County Hound the following year. But after having them shelve his album for 5 years, he left & made his official debut with The Art of Dying. This was followed up with The County Hound 2 in 2013 & pretty much a new release or releases every year. He just dropped his last album The Art of Living a few months ago & if that isn’t enough, he’s already delivering his 9th full-length album & the 3rd sequel to the project that got him where he is today.
The album kicks off with “Fly High”, which is a killer rap rock anthem about weed. The next song “In Real Life” gets reflective over a smooth instrumental from longtime collaborator Rikanatti while the track “Bring It In” charismatically flexes over some knocking drums. The song “Don’t Like Me” gets rowdy over a hard hitting beat with some keyboards while the track “Whoomp” talks about how fresh he is over a Neptunes inspired instrumental.
The song “Live It Up” sees Capo bragging over a haunting piano lead while the track “Orange County” pays tribute to his California stomping grounds over a laidback beat. The song “I Got” is an awkward auto-tune ballad with a luxurious trap beat while the penultimate track “Don’t Care” gets reckless over a demented beat. The album then ends with “Whut’s Really Happnen’?”, where Capo gets bloodthirsty over a nightly instrumental.
A lot of Ca$his’ greatest bodies of work come from The County Hound series & this is no exception. Couple tracks I could’ve done without but for the most part, it’s a great representation of who he is & where he is now. Dude’s been in the game for a little over a decade now but to this very day, he & Rikinatti continue to the bring out the best in each other.
