Album ‘In2 The Woods’ by hip-hop artist Cass G is a nice piece of art.
While many around us were flirting heavily with Jay-Z’s LP ‘4:44’ when it released, we were engaged to an advanced copy of Cass G’s ‘In2 The Woods’ at that time. And we said “I do”.
I do enjoy how Cass G rhymes about being driven to succeed, acknowledging the personal and professional challenges he’s previously encountered along with those he continues to face. While you get the sense that both rhyming and performing are a source of therapy for him, the cursed shadow of his living, breathing gift is anxiety.
I do like that he chose such dark production for the first ¾ of the LP. On these the aggression displayed in Cass G’s verses remind us of an impassioned drummer out to prove themselves by beating respect into their surrounding kit.
I do feel a connection and a need to replay songs like “Oh Lord” and “My Mind at The Moment” that speak to us personally as we gather they do for Cass G too. |
