On his new EP, Right Now, Northern California rapper Cashius Green is a different zone than we last heard him, rapping over moodier backdrops with ringing keyboards and deep basslines. He’s also brought along frequent collaborator PHEO, a fellow Cali emcee with a more straightline delivery and understated rhyme patterns. Green, with his relaxed, almost André 3000-like nasal drawl, sounds best when given space to roam, like on the stretched out dirt road of closer “Cameras On.”
You can also check out Cashius Green alongside Ab-Soul, Joey Badass, and a host of others on the Smoker’s Club tour, which kicks off this week. Full list of dates here.
