Oh Hell Oh

Cage is preparing to drop his new LP Away From Me this summer, which will most likely be his furthest departure from his old thugged-out morbid sound that initially built his career pre-Def Jux. For a taste of what we have in store in the new clean-cut, more indie, and matured Cage, we have a new one from the EP released for free on Twitter last night. Since then this track has been on steady repeat:


Actor Shia LaBeouf has taken an almost obsessive interest in Cage the last few years, going so far as to work on a documentary about him. Needless to say, it will probably be the most interesting and convoluted hip-hop documentary ever. As a teaser to that project, Shia directed the most recent video for Cage from his track I Never Knew You, which is a more than impressive directorial debut.

And if you're feeling the video and song...

this is garbage emo-hop tailored for a demographic. Ugh. Cage used to kill it.

Honestly, I enjoyed Hell's Winter and Cage's new album a lot more than his older material. He's matured a lot as an artist...his lyrics are definitely more nuanced. But yeah, if you don't like emotional songs, the new Cage probably isn't for you. I definitely wouldn't say this is tailored for a demographic though...I think Cage is just making the music he wants to make.
