|Black Sheep 3 (mixtape) by Caskey|
Caskey (Brandon Caskey) from Orlando, Florida, a Cash Money Records rapper since 2012, who is still on the famous NOLA/Miami label, issued the third part to his Black Sheep mixtape-series in February of this year, continuing is mountaintop climb to the upper echelons of the industry, while still remaining a commander in his particular niche. The Caskey we hear in this project projects a bunch of condescending dopeboy swag initially that opens up later in about feelings geared towards grappling with not being understood and not bending his style to the desires of outsiders.
His rapping technique is no doubt respectable as his wordplay is sharp, layered and stacked in a number of spots, but his loose trapped-out subjects will require some reconsideration and remodeling in the foreseeable future. Fans would appreciate hearing more personality from him as well, and he would probably agree that his topics could stand to be more unique and outside-the-box more often. Still though, Caskey is surely an emcee to watch for. If the content in Black Sheep 3 is what he is capable of in a mixtape, then an LP by the skilled young man will probably be just as promising or more so.
