With no musical background in his family, the process of writing, editing and recording his own music is unchartered territory for Casa, but it’s a task he’s met with vigour and an uncompromising dedication to succeed, yet at the same time staying true to the meaning behind his lyrics.
Aged 12, Casa found himself following in his older brother’s footsteps but listening to Eminem, but Andrew decided to take it one step further; studying Eminem’s catalogue from back to front, searching for the meaning behind each verse and couldn’t help but be inspired. This inspiration soon transferred into Casa putting pen to paper on his own lyrics, but as all rappers know; lyrics are only half the battle, getting those lyrics to flow is an entirely different ball game and one that Casa acknowledges as a work in progress.
For too long artists such as Hilltop Hoods, Bliss n Esso and Drapht have had to bare the weight of the Australian hip-hop industry solely on their shoulders, but through determination and a desire to learn, Casa has dreams of lending a helping hand to shoulder the responsibility.
With Australian hip-hop experiencing it’s largest influx in local produce and the bar being set higher with each album release, it’s become harder than ever to claw your way out of the hip-hop abyss; but Western Sydney protégée Andrew Casa refuses to be another artist added to the scrap heap.
