Cas One: Happy Anniversary [Single]
November 12, 2016 Leave a comment
Take a deep fucking breath everyone. Seriously, before you listen to the poetry that is “Happy Anniversary”. Yes Cas One is a rapper, but what you are about to hear doesn’t fully constitute a “rap song”. And not just because its an accapella single, but because this is real poetry. And it’s fucking painful. It seriously hurts to listen to it. I can honestly say I can’t remember the last time I heard something so painfully relatable that it became a gut-wrenching process to listen to. If you can listen to this shit and not instantly feel so much pain for the great Cas One, you have to be a soulless wonder. And anybody who has been through a similar situation, no matter the end result, it will be like hearing everything rolling through your head that you wish you coul articulate as well as this man. At least it is that way to me.
3 minutes. I just 3 simple minutes, Cas One fucking steals time. In just 180 God damned seconds, this man releases something to the world that is almost undescribable. Look, just listen:
Seriously, how to critque that? It’s impossible. I’m just going to say that it is genius, and I am so excited to hear the Cas One vs. Figure album coming soon from Strange Famous Records.
To wrap it all up, I can only use the description that Cas One uses himself:
“My name is Jacob. When I rap my name is Cas One. I am going through a divorce.”
That’s all you really need.
