Oakland hip-hop artist, FourSixty8, has been on a tear this year. After dropping his first project, The Birth, earlier in 2014, FourSixty8 got back into the lab and dropping two more tapes – Caution Human and No Brakes – all within 3 months of each other.
With a strong catalogue behind him, the Oakland-born rapper will heading out on tour at the beginning of 2015 to promote the three tapes as well as build hype for his upcoming debut album.
Influenced by the likes of Eminem, Snoop Dogg and Ice-T, FourSixty8’s music is hard and in-your-face but also demonstrates a strong sense of melody by the rapper.
The 11-track tape also features guest appearances from fellow hip-hop artists The Willz, Kassie, Rich D and Mac Meezy.
