David Casa is an up and coming 22 year old Hispanic rapper out of Chicago. In the course of his life, this young man has faced enough adversity to arm him with an arsenal of lyrics that powerfully convey gritty, raw emotions his listeners can relate to. What makes him even more appealing is his willingness to share them, honestly and openly, with his audience. And perhaps what makes him completely unique is that at the core of this young man hardened by life’s experiences is a humble, honest soul with a softer side. Casa describes himself as a guy who wants the best for his family and is not afraid to bare his soul to attain it. In his own words “I write what I see, feel and know. The struggle is what makes me. Life will change me. At times it will harden and strain me, but the pain will never break me.” Casa sites the heavy influence of Eminem, Rakim, Nas, Tupac, J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Drake into his musical style. But the opposition he has faced in life as the genesis for his message.
