With 2016 almost behind us and 2017 right around the corner, South Africa's hip hop heavy hitter Frank Casino is ending the year with palpable presence, from London-based Boiler Room TV to The Movie Music Festival. His 2016 success as been down to 2-things; his resilient persona and the ability to craft crafty rhymes on some of the dopest beats ever made in Africa by Africans for Africa...and the world! Starting with his very successful hit song "Whole Thing" earlier this year, Frank Casino went on to release a 16-track 'bomb-blast' of a surprise debut project titled "Something From Me" which was recently voted one of SA’s Top 10 Best Albums of 2016. “Whole Thing Remix” features one of South Africa’s biggest artists – Riky Rick and is said to be among both artists’ best works this year.
South Africa's fast-rising rapper, Frank Casino releases his highly anticipated debut project titled "Something From Me". In this 16-track heavy-hitting LP, Frank Casino sheds detailed light on many sides and shades of his life growing up in South Africa.

With superb delivery and in-depth use of lyricism, Frank Casino once again shows the world why he is highly regarded as one of the hottest and brightest emcees rising out of the Motherland; giving established rappers like Casper Nyovest, AKA and DA L.E.S a run for that #1 spot.
Revolutionary music at its peak! Common's "Black America Again" album is a musical exorcism ritualized in its finesse and classy instrumentation of compositions. Mind-blowing is an understatement when describing this electric Pan-African music project. Bundled with the uncertainties of the recently concluded U.S. elections, "Black America Again" is a UNIFYING album every black man, woman, and child need listen to religiously in order to get a sense of direction in these dark times.
When we featured Frank Casino a few months back it’s almost like we knew what the future looked like for him. Looking at what he’s done since then and where he is today we still maintain our stance about him being Africa’s rising Hip-Hop star. He was recently featured on The Best of Soundcloud along with Sarkodie, ELrepGH, M.anifest & Cassper Nyovest – Africa’s most celebrated musical exports in Hip-Hop, subsequently embedding his talent in DJ Speedsta’s hit single “Mayo” - arguably the biggest song in South Africa right now.
