03CAS is a North London-based emcee who has just come to my attention thanks to his unconventional and brilliant new track GOLLY.
By Graeme Smith
03CAS is originally from South Africa, and his use of slang from his native country, and from the UK is what makes his lyrics stand out from the crowd. They’re set against a backdrop of experimental instrumentals that combine classical and modern elements in a fresh and interesting way.
The track features on 03CAS’s debut album THE IMPOSTER, out now via Future Gods. The album explores the feeling of alienation and displacement that comes from moving countries and is an absolute must-listen if you enjoy GOLLY. You can give the single a listen below.
