It’s been a minute since we were wowed by an official release from Teargas’ spawn project, Cashtime. Initially a conglomerate consisting of Teargas and individual signees Ab Crazy, Smashi and Dakid X, it seems only the latter two remain.
In 2011, Teargas made instant stars of Smash, X and Ab Crazy when they formed the super group and subsequently released the album Now or Never from which hit singles such as ‘Goodbye’ and ‘Standee’ emerged. After the Ab Crazy departure, the remaining thundercats went on to collaborate on various songs with peers, as well as a few unofficial internet releases.
Since then, the two have lingered in the crevices of the industry keeping us waiting on those solo projects that were once promised to us. One could speculate that the release and promotion of the Teargas album Number Number last year left no space and/or resources for any other project from the label. Whatever it is, we hope that the young fellas strike while the iron is hot and make good of the momentum gained over the past two years.
Last week, both members posted a link to a five track mixtape titled R.A.D.I.O for your listening pleasure. You can download the songs here.
