Biography
Cali Casino:

Cali Casino releases his new single 'On Top Of The World', from forthcoming album Uprise, due in May. 'On Top Of The World' is produced by Cali Casino himself and was written by the brilliant LA rapper . The single is out on Cali's own record label, Barber-Q-Records.

Cali Casino has a formidable musical pedigree. He has produced the likes of the legendary Blackstreet, on their track Make You Wet, and Rass Kass's first single Miami Life, which went on to sell over 800,000 copies. His high-flying connections don't end there - he appeared as an actor in Outkast's film Idlewild. He has also cast videos for the likes of 50 Cent, Rubben Studdard and Missy Elliott. Cali Casino is a true hip-hop heavyweight.

Cali Casino wrote and produced the whole of his new album, He is currently charting at Radiowavemonitor.com in the mainstream/pop charts, and at live365.com. This encouragement for his music, along with his standing in the hip-hop community, ensures world domination is merely a matter of time for Cali Casino.

Cali Casino was raised in the rough suburb that is Inglewood in Los Angeles, where he discovered his love of music at an early age. He says: "I heard Ladi Dadi by Slick Rick on the radio one day in 1990 and ran to the record shop."

While attending Inglewood High (whose alumni include Mack 10 and Paul Pierce) he began working with DJ Quik, at the tender age of 13. He proved himself to be a fast learner and soon began doing production and remixes with the likes of Teddy Riley, Foster, and McElroy (En Vogue). Soon enough Cali was producing major artists on his own, and writing his own material.

His main influences include Russell Simmions, Jay Z, Big Daddy Kane, BDP, Biz Markie, Easy E, DJ Quik, Dr Dre. Cali is now well on the way to joining these illustrious names in hip-hop legend.

Cali Casino has already fulfilled one of his ambitions in setting up his label, Barber-Q-Records. He refused to sign for a major label, so after saving money, was able to set up his own - something most artists don't do and don't have the drive for. But Cali Casino is a different proposition to most artists. His new single should see his fame spread, leading up the release of what promises to be a mesmerising debut album.

'On Top Of The World' is available for purchase at Cdbaby, iTunes and Amazon.com
