Shady Records recording artist Cashis is real excited right now. Not only does he have an EP, with County Hound, out that sold more than he and his label expected, but he is also enjoying triple platinum success with the Shady compilation, The Re-Up, which he is featured on seven songs of. Now, as records non-stop for his debut record, titled Loose Cannon, the rapper is gearing up for its release sometime this year -- actually a first quarter release is what he told us.
The Orange County, California native told BallerStatus at a recent private Interscope Records event that he's pushing for a summer release of his major label debut, but before then, fans can expect some free music that he will release on his own.
" was supposed to drop in December , but wanted it to come out now," Cashis said of the forthcoming album. "I'm trying to push it back a little bit later 'cause I got a couple more songs I wanna do. I wanna give the fans another EP right before I come out. Just put out an EP out, outta my own pocket, for free for the fans, and then hit 'em with a double CD for the price of one."
The as-yet-titled EP won't be your run of the mill five or six song EP though. He revealed that it will be a visual EP, with a video accompanying each song -- songs that he insists will not be on his debut.
"These records will not be on the album, so it's not like I'm going to be cheating the fans," he told Ballerstatus.
