“A Godfather-type figure in Baton Rouge” – Passion Of The Weiss
A well-respected Godfather-like figure in the Baton Rouge scene, Mista Cain raps about his sorrows and triumphs in intimate detail. After nearly a decade in the mixtape game, Mista Cain drops Tha Verdict, his first official studio album. Coasting over Southern-Fried, reverb drenched street bangers, Mista Cain reflects on his post-prison life and how his murder trial and subsequent acquittal loom large over his state of mind. 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 is an impressive collection of street tales, marked by honest observations, memorable banalities, and frank details about life in Baton Rouge.
Born Samuel Nichols, Mista Cain is a known rap figure and artist across the South. He is the founder of Cain Muzik Mafia, a Baton Rouge-based music collective featuring artists such as Scotty Cain. Last week, Mista Cain dropped a video for the sensitive “Making Love,” which describes how a prison stint can change a relationship. In the run up to Tha Verdict, Mista Cain shared “Run Dem Banz,” Mista Cain’s collaboration with Young Dolph, the Boosie-featuring “Remember When,” and the slice-of-life video for “Made It Out,” premiered by Mass Appeal.

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.
