Richie Blackz x Casper – Small Town [Audio] #Premiere
London, ON – HipHopCanada has teamed up with the homies Richie Blackz and Casper to bring you this freshly-cooked audio premiere for the track “Small Town.” Richie and Casper are both from London, so they use this joint to give a nod to their fellow small-town rap cats staying on the grind: “Pass the blunt to my n**ga/ Then I pass the drink to my bitch/ Then I pass ‘Go’ and collect 200/ We monopolizing this shit.”
Y’all might remember that joint Richie put out titled “London Town” that got him some serious shine. I feel like people tend to assume that “Canadian hip-hop” and “Toronto hip-hop” are one in the same. You feel me? Cats who don’t follow the scene assume that anything relevant that ever happened in Canadian hip-hop came out of Toronto. This isn’t the case, though. If you follow HHC – you know that there are cats bubbling to the service from all over the map. Richie says it, himself, on that first verse: “They said I was local/ I told them I’m loco/ And one day I promise you’ll get it.”
This song bodies the hungry rap hustle. Richie and Casper go in over some turnt Mazur production and hit us with all the flex: “I be on that small town shit/ With my small town clique/ And my small town bitch/ I aint stoppig ’til we all get rich.”
While Richie’s verse glorifies the small town squad mentality, Casper’s verse dives into the darker side of the small town come-up. He takes us back to when he was 11 years old and ended up in a group home, as well as his struggles with unemployment. Then he wraps it all up with some swank: “Tell your boys that we’ll destroy them/ Tell your girls that we’ll employ them.”
