The life of a hip-hop hopeful isn’t easy, especially when you take your craft as seriously as Show Sum emcee Co$$. Regardless of how tough the going gets, however, the Los Angeles native is determined to stay on his hustle – and keep getting that cheese – from Now Til Infinity. On the inaugural leak off his and Fort Lauderdale, Fla. beatsmith Numonics’ forthcoming mixtape, Ca$hus King pledges allegiance to the grind alongside a few equally driven underground talents. Joining the headliner over Nu’s stark chopped-sample instrumental are Lawrence, Massachusetts mainstay REKS and Kidz in the Hall member Naledge, the former blowing off his “fake friends” in a lyrically intense middle verse, and the latter offering a more laid-back perspective on the back end: “They only hate me ‘cause they ain’t me, stuck on high-school games…” If you found this retro-informed track inspiring, there are plenty more Revelations in store on Co$$ and Numonics’ forthcoming, 2DopeBoyz-presented street album, scheduled to hit the ‘net sometime in July.
