"Holiday Season Exclusive Video: Tha Captin “Wait”"

Tennessee native Tha Captin is on a mission to bring back the realness to the rap game. With his new single, “Wait,” Tha Captin unleashes a cool video that is both visually pleasing and effortlessly creative. Produced by Atlanta hit-maker Cassius Jay, “Wait” is a spaced-out track with wavy bells and hard-hitting 808s, a perfect backdrop for Tha Captin to rap about his dedication and respect for the grind. A humble artist in both his approach to music as well as his relationship with his community and team, the rapper also encourages others to make the best of their respective situations—telling them to take the grind they have now and pursue it to its maximum potential.

“Wait” comes from Tha Captin’s most recent mixtape, Big Ball Cappin, which sports production by Cassius Jay, Yung Lan and Nard & B, plus features from Boosie Badazz, Bankroll Fresh and Skooly. Known to release up to 4-5 mixtapes a year as a part of his consistent hustle, Tha Captin is currently prepping for the release of his next project in spring 2016 and continuing to perform across the country. - By BIGNOAH256
