Legendary Hieroglyphics crew rhymer Casual returns with a new single this morning! “Raw” lives up to its name featuring orchestration courtesy of DEAD PERRY as well as guest work from Rockness Monsta (Heltah Skeltah), P-Dirt and DJ Jason D.
This track is taken from the forthcoming digital and limited CD release from Below System Records (with vinyl version courtesy of Tuff Kong Records) entitled The Art Of Reanimation. Dropping on January 28th the project is an eighteen-track deep affair that both remixes tracks from his Casual’s Big Head Science LP from 2020 and includes four new tracks. Production is primarily handled by DEAD PERRY who tends to create darker and more claustrophobic soundscapes that you don’t usually hear Casual flow on. However PERRY also enlists long-time ally L Nasty to tackle a handful of tracks bringing the listener up for some air.
Besides the aforementioned guests on “Raw” also enlisted for the project is a plethora of legendary emcees and notables from the recent boom-bap renaissance. These guests include Ghostface Killah, Planet Asia, Ras Kass, Killah Priest, ETO, Daniel Son, Celph Titled, Crimeapple, DJ TMB, Phesto, Tristate, J-Spliff, MC Wicks and more.
