"Artist Review: C. Thoughts"

It’s always refreshing to discover Hip Hop with a powerful message; a message that not only sheds light on the content matter, but also has that staying power that really entices you to read more into an artist’s craft. We get exactly that with C.Thoughts politically supercharged single, “Slave to the Money”.

It’s nice to get away from the every day booty-shaking and drug dealing themes in a lot of Rap/Hip Hop’s sensibilities. It’s a great money maker, sure. But artist’s that set the mainstream obsession aside and actually captivate you with real life subject matter is not only rare, but incredibly real.

The piano-oriented beat in this song perfectly parallels the raw emotion behind C.Thoughts‘ vocal and content delivery. The song’s progression helps carry the torch with his message, and really sets the overall tone. The track has that highly effective simplicity, and really gets you to focus on the strong flow and highly skilled rhyming techniques throughout this song. It’s a track that is easily one you could come back to time and time again, and will always grab your attention every time.

C.Thoughts is definitely an artist with incredible passion, powerful content, and will head to bigger places if he sticks with it. “Slave to the Money” is definitely the perfect track to get your foot in the door with his music. We love every component of this song, and its versatility. When you take a listen, you’ll definitely understand why.

The Random Thought EP Volume 1 (2017)



Los Angeles emcee C.Thoughts first burst onto the scene in 2015, bringing with him an undeniably dynamic lyrical style, and trademark sonic versatility. Born and raised in Plainfield, New Jersey, he’s been rapping since the tender age of 14. He officially began his career in the music industry in 2016, later releasing his acclaimed debut EP, ”Random Thoughts” in the summer of 2018. 

“I began recording music to [help myself] let go of emotional pain,” he says of the sessions that ultimately culminated into his debut record. The six-song opus was only the beginning as he is currently in the final stages of mixing and mastering the proper follow-up, "Thought Process," in July of 2019. 

Having lived in L.A. for the past seven years, C.Thoughts has been building his buzz, performing at various various events, such as Hollywood Open Mic and Silverlake Lounge —where he also headlined a show. With a seasoned stage presence, thought-provoking bars, and a keen ear from contemporary production, he is proving to be a bright star worth keeping on your radar.
