The landscape of indie hip-hop changes forever with the release of Cas One’s The Monster and the Wishing Well, a 16-track opus that defies the traditional definition of hip-hop and gives it a fresh meaning.


Cas One is working tirelessly to establish himself as a lyrical wrecking ball capable of spitting with the best of them. He’s worked with everyone from Brother Ali and Sadistik, to the late Eyedea and Ceschi Ramos of Fake Four, Inc. His 2005 debut, Liberation, was a valiant effort, which was not only widely received, but also critically acclaimed on sites like 2DopeBoyz and Okayplayer.


On The Monster and the Wishing Well, Cas One finds a way to address heavy topics while retaining intriguing musicality and infectious, unrelenting beats. Guest spots include Ceschi Ramos and Kristoff Krane on “Never Runner” and Bitter Stephens on “Empty Nest.” But overall, this is unmistakably a Cas One album. The songs are tales of a young man growing up, becoming a father, a husband, and feeling out the methods of balancing it all out with his artistic passion. Not to mention, Cas One’s lyrical skills are on point. He rhymes with confidence and honesty as he tightly holds on to the fluidity of each verse. His live shows are filled with boundless energy. Cas One is literally one to watch. The Monster and the Wishing Well continues a promising career for an artist who is just getting started.

Greg Grease – “Forward”



If you’ve managed to get this far during the week, you probably deserve a break. And what good timing to introduce Greg Grease‘s latest video for “Forward”, a stripped down, less-is-more banger that doesn’t need to be overdramatic to get it’s point across. Directed by Adam Dunn as a part of his #LABB (Lights and a Backdrop) series, the visuals are as minimalistic as it gets, allowing the Grease, his DJ and his turntable to play centre stage. Check it out and be sure to pick up Greg Grease’s Black King Cole EP if you don’t already own it.
