We have not heard from Cash Kardz in a very long time and he is finally back with his new video, ‘Khaas‘. Cash still carries the signature laid back flow and corrosive rhymes but he did not come alone to this party he got P Swish with him.
Just a glimpse of the hook and you will figure out what the track is about, it is about something special which literally translates to ‘Khaas‘. I have heard Cash before and he still packs mean punches alongside the groovy flow but I heard Swish for the first time and he has done justice to the track and will be waiting on more material from him.
What stood out for me in this track was that although Cash featured Swish but it never felt like the product of the collaboration of two different artists, they both shared the intensity of a team and maybe in the future we get to hear them as a duo.
Check out their new video, right here :
I caught up with both of them and this is how our conversation went down :
Slyck : What are Cash Cardz and P Swish upto these days.
Cash : Cash kardz as the ones who know me know loves cash and good music. Thats what i’ve been pursuing. I’ve been locked in the studio since last few months and i’ve been spending most of my time working behind the boards, producing and engineering records for myself and my clients. So music ! music ! music ! and a couple of side hustles.
P Swish : The focus was always on making great music and further improvising it. I’m on a constant effort to bring something new to the table. Something they never heard before. Sounds that strike your senses straight. Cuz we been hearing the same stuff for a long time now. It’s high time someone switched up the traditions of the underground.
Slyck : The new track sounds phat, what’s it about ?
Cash : Thanks fam. Its such an irony of life that once best buddies become strangers with the flow of time. The track is about such a friend.
Slyck : What was the concept behind the video ?
Swish : The vibe of this song is so addictive that we wanted to extend that on to the video as well. Reason being, we chose the classy streets of Heera Nandani, Powai at midnight to retain that smooth, yet classy feel of the track. In short, we’ve kept it raw and street, just how HipHop is supposed to be.
Slyck : How are your future projects looking like ?
Cash : Maaaan i shit you not, i’ve got more unreleased music than some of these artist’s whole catalogue. I’m a perfection chaser, which is a boon and a bane. I’m very critical about my stuff and music in general. Producing and engineering ‘my’ music adds to that. One has to listen to one’s songs from 3 different perspectives. Gets kind of hectic sometimes but i can’t help it. There aren’t more than 2 people in the scene who can mix and master hip hop music properly. Most of them twist knobs without knowing whats happening lol Getting back to the topic As soon as everything comes up to my expectations sonically and time seems right. It’ll be out.
Swish : We’ve got some really great stuff in store for the future. No, this ain’t no cliché artist dialogue, you can count on this. Quality over everything has always remained our motto. We’ve got the right blend of stories and rhymes with beats that’ll blow your mind along with your speakers. Just what good hiphop is all about.
Slyck : What do you think about the state of Desi Hip-Hop ?
Swish : We see a lot of these new artists invest huge amount of money over fancy videos but what they don’t realize is that the music is the main matter of concern here. To be honest, nothing in the present scene excites us to that level. But we’re noticing that the Delhi hip hop scene is on the come up. Shout out to Raga from artisttaan. That kid’s on some good shit.
Cash : Hip hop has always been about bringing something new/unique to the table. Most artists in and around us lack originality. We’ve seen countless rappers rapping about the gully life after the recent success of artists like Naezy and Divine. One must realize that staying original is the best way to success.
Slyck : Any message for fans and followers ?
Cash : Thanks for believing in us. Thanks for being patient. We are just getting started The best is yet to come.
