Cassius Cain - Definition

Press play. Just do it. That’s what I have to tell myself sometimes when a new song pops up from an artist with whom I’m not yet acquainted. Often I’m disappointed, but sometimes I press play and I’m instantly intrigued. I’m happy to say write that this happened today, when I first listened to Definition by Atlanta newcomer Cassius Cain. Produced by DJ Camper, Definition sounds like what you’d get if you mixed production by TNGHT and 6 Foot 7 Foot as it features heavy snares as well as a sampled voice on loop. Cain impressively displays his vocabulary and familiarity with a thesaurus over the track as he spits nonstop for three minutes, keeping you waiting to hear what he’ll say next. So DJBooth readers, I suggest you take a second, press play, and introduce yourselves to Mr. Cain.
