Video Review: Cashh – Trouble

In Afrobeats, Hip Hop by Elliott Nielson

Sage burning. Page turning. Learning from the past. Cashh drops meditative Afrobeat-rhythm, Trouble.

This tune is mellow but it speaks volumes!

Containing rage and frustration, Cashh has managed to produce a calming, minimal testament to current times. The first line tells it all when he says “They Keep Telling Me To Stay Outta Trouble // But Trouble Haffa Stay Out Of My Way”.

In the video we see the man self-isolating, bouncing between the windows and the walls. Watching police brutality via Instagram and clips of John Boyega leading protestors with megaphone in hand.

It’s clear that no matter when the song was written, troubles surround Cashh today.

Cashh, formerly known as Cashhtastic, recently returned to the UK late last autumn after living in Jamaica for five years. In an interview in 2014, Cashh said, “I’m born in Jamaica but the UK’s my home. What I need is for something to be done so I can return properly and get some form of justice. Everything is just a culture shock. It’s nothing to what I expected, it’s like me going to Japan or something. It’s literally me going to somewhere I’ve got no knowledge of”.
