Video: Cayso – The Essence

I have to be honest. I really didn’t want to like this. My first impression was, “Oh great. More white dudes with a camera trying to rap.” I’m white, so I can say things like that. Cayso was linked to me through Sole Grunt of Ragnarok, so I decided to give him a chance. The Essence begins with a smooth Barry White sample that is quickly obliterated the moment Cayso comes in with some attention grabbing lyrics. As soon as Cayso opened his mouth and began rapping, every stigma that I had against him flew out the window. The Essence is a short, but sweet, intro to Cayso’s aggressive rap style, leaving you wanting to hear more of what this guy can do. More of Cayso can be heard on North Carolina hip-hop collective No9to5’s mixtape, Quit Your Day Job Vol. 1: Unemployment Lines. Also, Cayso is currently working on an upcoming EP. I’ll keep you updated, for sure.
