Caskey's "The Transient Classics" review

It may be just me listening to about 5 mixtapes a day or the fact that he is signed to YMCMB but I just did not care for this.The mixtape is good but the beats are average at best and he sounds just like everybody else with good lyrics. Track 6- "Down And Out" is a track I listened to.

Please understand I am somewhat biased because I started this blog to help small name artist who are trying to get signed. I am forced to do these big names because nobody wants to read about nonames. When it comes to a release from artist signed to big name record labels I expect them to raise the bar and show why they deserved to be signed and Caskey did not do that for me, but I am not the one signing his checks so my opinion doesn't matter.

I skimmed through this because be has no features from any of his coworkers and that really would helps the sound of this. He has no distinctive sound that separates him from the crowd. He isn't talking about anything just using his rhyming talent. On a positive note, the mixtape is well done and because he is signed to YMCMB he doesn't have to be spectacular because the radio will play his stuff on repeat.

You can download this mixtape at the link below. Also I do my best to give an honest review even if it's not positive you can still respect my opinion and show your appreciation by donating $1 towards my cause. Thank you for visiting Great Frank's Place.

  1. This review didn't do the mixtape justice and it's clear you didn't listen to all of the tracks. Listen to Jill Price and tell me that is about nothing. Caskey has meaning in all of his songs. Even if you don't like them, you can't deny that. You're a Lil Wayne fan, so I can't expect much from you I suppose.
