Review: Cassanova (CASS C.E.O. of S.T.O.R.M. Records)
Born and raised, Cassanova lived and went to public school in Flint, Michigan. With his families history deep in the movement through the 50’s and 70’s. It is no surprise that Cassnova would find him self reaching and speaking to the world. Mark Clark, a revolutionary Black Panther leader, and Uncle to Cassanova and BIG-G. Started The Breakfast Program For Children with Fred Hampton that is now international. Mark Clark helped in forming the lives of these two men.
“All the non-believers of self’ motivation and determination, drove me to this point in my life.”
At the start of his career, Cassanova was his own main support. While surrounded by negative influences he strived to find his own source of motivation and inspiration. We all can relate to the daily struggle, that faces us when just trying to live. Living in a place, surrounded by drug dealers and thugs, Cassanova never really had roll models. He focused on becoming a roll model for everyone else. Which lead him to help form S.T.O.R.M Records, which stands for Strong Talented Organized Revolutionary Men.
As, for how Cassanova feels about the industry, and its politics: “I asked if the industry needed to be fixed?”
“The industry does need to be fixed, and I have the right tools for the job. lol”
As an artist that is reaching for the stars. He hopes with his versatility, he can give a different style of music to the game. With his families history, he is speaking about revolutionary rap and speaking straight from the heart. He also spoke about how he wants to help change a lot of the materialistic things, about the music industry. By bringing respect, something positive, with straight forward rhymes. As far as politics? Cassanova believes in following your heart and doing what is right for your life, not the mighty dollar. While still understanding that it takes money to live in today’s world.
“I always did music, as long as I could remember, struggling in the hood. That’s why, my music is so heart felt or easy to relate too.”
A man with faith and determination Cassanova is thankful to the lord, for giving him his gift of music. To have the chance to express his pain, and views to the world. He is an artist, who has a vision to create something that will help make a change for the better. Every day he strives for that lyrical crown, with his crew behind him. I believe CASS and BIG-G are living in the moment, getting their respect, and speaking their point of views. Someone who is standing up to and for the world.
“life is not promised.. but death is surely certain.”
