Critical Praise for Mista Cain

“A Godfather-type figure in Baton Rouge”Passion Of The Weiss

The Song:

A wizened veteran idolized by everyone in the Baton Rouge scene, Mista Cain packages tales of street morality into melodic, southern-fried rap songs. Kicking back and reminiscing with fellow Louisiana rap legend Boosie Badazz, Mista Cain reflects on harder times on “Remember When.” Produced by Tuchstone, the track finds the two veterans rhyming over reverb drenched guitars, insistent bass, and rattling hi-hats, emotionally recalling memories of love, work, and crime. Premiered by The Fader, “Remember When” is the latest single from Tha Verdict, Mista Cain’s upcoming debut album, which focuses on his murder trial and his subsequent acquittal. Featuring appearances from Boosie Badazz, Young Dolph, Starlito, Trouble, and Chrizz Michaels, with production from Mouse On The Track, Jon Boii, JTrax, and others, Tha Verdict releases on March 17th. “Remember When” is the third release from the project, following “Run Dem Bandz” featuring Young Dolph, and the Mass Appeal-premiered video for “Made It Out.”

Born Samuel Nichols, Mista Cain started rapping about the streets in high school. After he dropped out, music became more than a hobby–it was an outlet to express the hardship in his life. In the early 2010s, Cain formed Cain Muzik Mafia, a Baton Rouge-based music collective featuring artists such as Scotty Cain, and put out the three part Cain Muzik mixtape series. In 2013, Mista Cain collaborated with Kevin Gates, who sang Mista Cain’s praises in an interview with Peter Rosenberg, on Gates’ “Change On Me.” Like many Louisiana rappers, local authorities took an outsized interest in his non-musical activities and Mista Cain went to jail on a second-degree murder charge in 2013. In 2015, Cain was acquitted of all charges. Last year, Cain released The Cain Project, an appetizer for the upcoming Tha Verdict. A godfather figure in the Baton Rouge rap scene, Mista Cain acts as a mentor to younger Louisiana artists, including NBA YoungBoy.

Filmed after Mista Cain’s release from prison, The Godfather Documentarygives a glimpse into Mista Cain’s life. Featuring a collection of concert clips, radio interviews, behind-the-scenes of music video shoots, and candid recordings of Cain and his crew, all set to the sound of Mista Cain’s signature music, the documentary is an illuminating look inside the life of a beloved street rapper. With YouTube views in the millions and a devoted Louisiana fanbase, Tha Verdict looks to expand Mista Cain’s fanbase from regional to national.

Mista Cain Background

Samuel Nichols–aka “MISTA CAIN”–is a Street rapper from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. His rap style gives a detailed description of his first hand experiences. Nichols rapped for fun in school and after he dropped out and began hustling in the streets, music became more than a hobby. About the same time, he was spitting & living his hardcore lyrics, he gained the unwanted attention of public officials and a special gang task force. Mista Cain kept rapping to express his perspectives and became determined to dominate the Music Industry. He formed Cain Muzik Mafia and with his team they put out the three-part Cain Muzik mixtape series, and featured on Kevin Gates‘ “Change on Me” in 2013. In that same year, Mista Cain detained with no bond for second-degree murder. After a lengthy trial, was acquitted. In 2015, he left prison and began recording new music, collaborating with Boosie BadAzz on “Big Blue Hundreds” in February of that same year. In 2016, Mista Cain released Cain, a mixtape that reflected on his prison term and trial. Mista Cain and Cain Muzik Mafia have YouTube views in the millions and a loyal fan base that increases daily. With regular collaborations with other artists such as Plies, Starlito, Jadakiss, Young Dolph and Migos, and his upcoming project Tha Verdict, Mista Cain will continue to release gritty, real street music for an ever expanding audience.
