Casual: The Return of the Backpack

The Return of the Backpack is as exciting as the return of the king of the elite rap lyricism. Casual and the Seattle-based, indie rap beat maker Jake One made thirteen tracks that make up, a smooth, solid album. “Backpack” represents rappers who do not appear charming to a big audience. Casual though, wears his backpack proudly because he is rhythmically convincing and his character reverberates on every track he makes.
