Cas Metah is slowly but surely emerging from the shadows and with that comes music from some of his earlier work as he gets set to release brand new music. Today I have the remix for “Fire” which originally was on Cas Metah’s album “Old Fashioned” which dropped in 2015. The remix was produced by Wizdm and features Scribbling Idiot member JustMe. You can find this remix on Cas Metah’s Remix album “Second Wind” for now though peep the visuals and keep it locked here for updates on Cas Metah, Scribbling Idiots and all things hip-hop.
I’ve been a fan of hip-hop supergroup Scribbling Idiots for a long time and can honestly attribute a lot of my love for hip-hop to them. The group spans from Portland all the way to the UK, which is where we’re going to stop today. Re:Flex the Architect is a an artist out of the UK and has done production for the group with a bit of rapping. That said he was one of my favorite emcee’s in the group the rare times he did grab the mic.
Thankfully my prayers have been answered because Flex is getting ready to release his debut album “From the Highest” and today I have the debut single “Brighter Days”. This track is perfect for this day and age because it seems like everything is in disarray, however Flex is doing his best to keep our hopes up. Along for the track is emae, Zero Basement & Cas Metah, all of which are here to brighten your day. I don’t think there’s a release date for “From the Highest” but make sure you keep it locked here because we’ll update you as news comes in.
I don’t hear about projects like these anymore but imagine this: two emcees head on tour and find themselves free for a couple of days in Illinois. Two other emcees from Illinois also have these days free, the four artists come together and decide to knock out a project in a couple days and release it to the world. That’s what happened with Scribbling Idiot emcees Cas Metah and Mouf Warren and KMF artists Lyriz & R.U.S.H. The four artists have known each other for years, collaborated on each others projects, however this is the first time the four artists have come together on a project.
“The #DailyDelivery” EP eight tracks of just straight dope, diverse hip-hop, no gimmicks just good art. Lyrically I’ve been kind of waiting for Cas Metah and Mouf to snap and they’ve done it on it this joint. As a group the four of them fit like a glove, it’s the result of years of working separately and together over the years. The production is ok, but isn’t meant to be the main focus on this project and honestly given the time constraints makes sense.
We get a mix of topics on this album and everyone gets their time to shine. While I respect all four of the artists on this project, R.U.S.H’s hooks really brought the songs together. Tracks like “Bars” has the group coming in with their best lines on an !llmind beat. “Cruel to Me” hit me right in the feels, with lyrics on broken relationships and the pain associated with them. The only track I didn’t really mess with was “National Defecate” but in the right space it’s a pretty funny track.
“The #DailyDelivery” EP is flying under your radar and it shouldn’t be. Every artist brings something different to the table and the chemistry between them shows despite this being their first project. Cas Metah’s gritty bars, Mouf Warren’s rapid fire flow, Lyriz’ always personal lyrics and R.U.S.H bringing his unique flow and singing, makes for a great project.
