It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from Cassius Tae. He’s been active in the Chicago scene, performing quite a bit and always pushing his movement. Today we have his newest release titled When I Need U Most. He’s always been a versatile emcee, able to speak on different topics with ease, and this cut is no different.
He bares his soul on this record, speaking directly to the woman in his life. The relationship has ended in a heartbreaking way, as she is no longer present in Cassius’ time of need. Vulnerability is at the heart of the track, and r&b vocals come from Deja Marie. They speak back and forth on their romance, ultimately leading to finding new love in their lives.
The switch up near the end is the highlight as the story progresses. Cassius raps about his former fling finding a new partner, and how it ultimately didn’t work out. When I Need U The Most is Cassius at his most heartfelt, with a beautiful narrative that we can all relate to at some point in our lives.
