Kasey "In Da City"

Kasey (aka Kaeshawn Diaz) recently teamed up with Lil Bebe J and The Entro on a new single called "In Da City". This is Kasey's fourth single of 2020 and first to highlight his ability to pivot into a more heavily R&B influenced sound.

2020 was Kasey's first year releasing music and with each new track he only got stronger and more refined. He is definitely and artist to watch in 2021.
