Young Kaso‘s music consists mainly of lofi and hip hop beats with some trap elements. His musical influences include Powfu, Kendrick Lamar, Lil Peep and Juice WRLD.
He sells CDs but is working steadily on a new album that’s due towards the end of this year. He likes to spend extra time on his music to make sure it’s good quality. “DIE SLOW” is a song he wrote after a suicide attempt. It’s very dark and expresses a lot of inner pain.
“I remember recording this directly after I came home from the hospital”, the artist remarked.
This song was produced by Charlie Chill, a fantastic lofi producer who deserves more recognition. Young Kaso made this song for anyone who’s going through a dark phase in their life. He hopes that the song will help them realize that they are not alone and that it will get better.
The artist usually writes his songs long before he has heard the instrumentals. He freestyles all of his songs but occasionally, when he has some deeper thoughts, he sits down and writes a starting line or two.
He also likes to oversee and help out in the production process wherever he can. He loves performing in small local breweries since he would always hang around in places like that. It’s very important to him to perform for that crowd.
His dream is to collaborate with Kendrick Lamar, who is his biggest inspiration. He admires Lamar’s writing process and workflow. He has a diverse music library, listening to artists like NF, Cheef Keef, Kendrick and Wu Tang. Hip hop is always the center of his library because he loves that culture and art form.
Young Kaso believes that building a community around your music and connecting with every single one of your listeners is a very important part of being an artist. His goal is to help people with his music, and what better way to do that than to be a helping hand by reaching out.
As a message to his fans, he said: “Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You guys have saved my life more times than I could possibly count. I never imagined I’d be getting the love that I get from you guys today and it’s a true blessing”.
