“The intersection of Jazz and Hip Hop, KASE is approaching these two separate but deeply connected genres/cultures in a way that prohibits the audience from separating them anymore. Their process prevents the audience from being able to recognize where one style ends and the other begins.

Ultimately, this record works because it has a DEEP and authentic love and respect for its roots.”
-Dwellephant
