As you deep dive into the single it is more of him telling a story about how he wants to provide for his brothers and career. Staten Island native project, Genesis, is set to release on Friday, February 21. It will consist of 12 tracks all on his own. Having humble beginnings and ideas, Cash’s outcome is betting on himself by having a purpose to live and die on his music career. We caught up with Chris Cash and discussed what is his term of being “Official,” and what can we expect from his forthcoming project plus more.
RESPECT.: Your first project, Genesis, releases on February 21, what is the message behind it?
I think it is a great fit for my debut project. The overall message is showing the world, and the journey we’ve embarked on as young men, as well as, the trials and tribulations we have faced. We’ve survived a lot and turned plenty of negatives into positives. No cap.
RESPECT.: With your hit single being called “Official,” what is the one thing you want to be official with?
Switching on your day one mans is not official and neither is snitching. A lot of people must’ve forgotten that. Other than that I have to be official with my brothers and this rap career. I don’t want anything in this lifestyle brings me to interfere with my family because we started this all together. I also take pride in being official with my artistry and building with the other artists I’m with. I don’t want any features from bigger names until I’ve solidified myself.
RESPECT.: What does the term “fake it ‘til you make it” mean to you?
It means don’t cap. So many people are faking it and trying to clout chase their way into this life. Everything has to be organic and pure, that’s why I don’t even write my lyrics anymore. I just record.
RESPECT.: Coming out of Staten Island, New York, can you say your sound is different from any other sound out here?
Yeah I think it’s far from different. I don’t know any other artist that sounds like me out here. I think that’s one of my best traits.
RESPECT.: Will there be any upcoming visuals pertaining to the project released soon?
I just dropped my first visual for “Official,” off of the album on YouTube. I also have something planned for the intro of the project coming real soon. We are going to get real cinematic with that one.
RESPECT.: Tell us what made you want to name the album ‘Genesis?’
I named it, ‘Genesis,’ because it represents my beginning. It solidifies that I’m here in the game and that this is the first of many. My first name is also Christian and coming from a religious background I knew of Genesis in the Bible. In that verse, God created the beginning and the end.
