Feeling a bit camera shy


Big Cas is without a doubt the future of hip-hop. With a flow wise beyond his years, this twenty-one year old lyricist could easily be the next Biggie, Jay-Z, or Nas. Big Cas was born in and raised North Carolina. Having grown up around music all his life Cas developed a strong love for hip hop and decided to start rapping at the tender age of twelve. ¨I always loved hip-hop music, as far back as I can remember quotes Big Cas. He has accomplished a lot in his few years as an MC. Along with opening for nearly any established rap act to come through NC he released his first solo album entitled Pain and Music in early 2003. Big Cas managed to sell 10,000 copies in NC alone with no radio air play and very little promotion. Big Cas was also featured as the up and coming artist of the month on the web page for The Source magazine and was recognized as one of the nations hottest up and coming artists. Cas proved to the masses that his gritty rap style and witty punch lines filled a void in NC and made him an artist that definitely has potential to go platinum out the gate. In late 2004 Big Cas released his first single "Call Me" off his new album set to be released in early 2005. The single features a gust appearance by Remy Martin of the Terror Squad. The album will also feature appearances my Pastor Troy, Mr. Cheeks, and a sample of the late 2Pac on a cover of the slain rappers song "Brenda's Got A Baby. ¨I like the fact that hip-hop music is more commercially accepted these days. I pretty much watched rap grow from something new the young, black kids were following into a genre that today's music industry can't survive without. That's why my music is so hot. I love the music and I know how it should sound. states Big Cas. Sometimes I'm my own worst critic, but that's how an artist should be. When it comes to my beats, I tell producers when we first meet that I'm one of the best songwriters. I can turn any track you give me to a hot song, but just because I can doesn't mean I will. When I first hear a beat I know after the first few seconds if I want to spit to it or not. Any beat I do spit on will turn into a hot song.¨ Big Cas is also and accomplished producer. His productions company, TrackMonstas, has a sound that has been praised by rappers everywhere as "what's next."
