Drop everything you’re listening, and tune into Case Arnold’s dope-ass, debut LP, SO(U)L Theory.
Mad love for the raw lyricism and deepness of original, contemplative thought.
A serious contender for album of the year in my books 😎
Case on the project,
The album represents the spiritual battle I was facing while making it the past few years. It’s a direct reflection of the state of mind I was in at the time. The overall concept comes from something I came up with when I was younger: If you remove “U” from SOUL, you’re Shit Out of Luck, and that concept started making its way back into my life as I was creating the project. The main themes really stem from battling to remain yourself in negative life situations, the journey of self-discovery, the idea of soul mates, and the process of trying to remain consistent.
As far as actually making the music, all of the production, features, mixing, and mastering all came from local family, except for one beat that the homie Shepard in New York contributed. But the album really is a family affair. No huge outside features or production. All organic from the hometown, which is how I wanted it. I’m extremely proud of the result and hype for people to hear it.
I’ve said enough – go ahead and bump this album throughout, and revel in the deep, real raps.
