Since he popped back up on Dubcnn in the article Casual Drops “Mic Memorial” Video From “The Hierophant” LP in June last year Casual aka Smash Rockwell of the legendary Hieroglyphics has been a regular with updates dropping visuals for Mic Memorial, Divine Dreams and Fiend For Hip-Hop.
His project “The Hierophant” was initially available to listen and purchase via his BandCamp page for just $7.99 and later in the year the album – which is produced entirely by Dj Toure’ with features from Tajai of Souls of Mischief, Pep Love, Thomas Pridgen of Mars Volta and MoonShyne – was packaged and re-released for retail late last year.
Earlier this year Casual aka Smash Rockwell released “He Still Think He Raw” – a nod to his 2001 LP “He Think He Raw” – produced entirely by DJ Fresh & The Whole Shabang. We brought you the first track from the album entitled Tears – as well as the Tears Music Vide, directed by Aris Jerome and then the Sushi single featuring Mr Town.
Today Casual is dropping his highly-anticipated collaborative album “Respect Game Or Expect Flames” with J Rawls. The album is available now via iTunes and to celebrate the duo have released the official video for the title track, on which Casual is joined by fellow Hieroglyphics member Del The Funky Homosapien for a certified Hiero anthem!
