The track has a dark cinematic texture and it’s also bolstered by thick trap drums. Cashius wastes no time in dropping jewels for the listener and implores them to wake up and see the real from the fake. He adds a nice melodic punch to the mix as well. Ras Kass comes through on the second verse with his own take on the matter.
Ali Cashius Jr is an independent artist from Detroit, MI. His career in music started as a young kid in Southwest Detroit when his childhood best friend challenged him to a rap battle. His friend was only joking, but Ali found himself preparing 24/7 and filling up his school notebooks with rhymes. He was inspired by artist like 2pac and Nas for their abilities to dig deep into their souls, but wanted to add that signature Eminem word play and rhyme schemes into deeper issues that plagued his childhood and community. The lack of financial resources was real issue not only growing up in Detroit, but even as a young adult. “It was a blessing in disguise” as Ali bounced around Atlanta, Maryland, Virginia, and Arizona looking for work to help support his dream. As of today, Ali Cashius Jr has performed along side artist such as Method Man & Redman, Currensy, Dave East, Kevin Gates, Vince Staples, G Perico, Snow Tha Product, Immortal Technique and so many more! He’s also collaborated with Slaughterhouse heavyweight Joell Ortiz, legendary west coast artist Ras Kass, and Futuristic.
