Kassa Overall – Go Get Ice Cream And Listen to Jazz
Just like the number 42 is the answer to “the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything”, so sounds Kassa Overall’s album title as a solution for everything in life: go get ice cream and listen to jazz to make all your problems go away. Escapism at its finest.
But Kassa Overall, a New York-based producer-MC and drummer, does anything but escape from reality on his latest album. Go Get Ice Cream And Listen To Jazz is a heartfelt album, serious and playful at the same time.
He flows over a self-produced mixture of hip-hop and contemporary jazz—it’s one of the most refreshing hip-hop albums we’ve heard this year. With a big thanks to Madison Washington’s Malik for recommending me this album.
