The Baton Rouge Rap Godfather Flashes Back to His Childhood In The Latest Visual From March’s Tha Verdict LP, Premiered by VIBE
Critical Praise for Mista Cain
“A Godfather-type figure in Baton Rouge” – Passion Of The Weiss
Known for his honest and plainspoken take on Southern-fried street rap, Baton Rouge’s Mista Cain is a Godfather-like figure in the Bayou rap game. Flashing back to the early ’90s in his latest video, Mista Cain reflects on his childhood in “Remember When.” Intercutting present-day clips of Mista Cain in his neighborhood with dramatized flashbacks of his school days, the video contrasts Mista Cain’s adolescent struggle with his current baller lifestyle. Premiered by VIBE, the video boasts an appearance from fellow Baton Rouge titan Boosie Badazz, who reminisces about growing up without a father in a short but powerful verse. “Remember When” is a highlight from The Verdict, Mista Cain’s official studio debut, which debuted via XXL in March. Featuring appearances from Boosie Badazz, Young Dolph, Starlito, Trouble, and Chrizz Michaels, with production from Mouse On The Track, Jon Boii, June James (Key to the Streets), and others, Tha Verdict is a heartfelt collection of street tales, marked by honest observations, memorable banalities, and frank details about life in Baton Rouge.
“‘Remember When’ is about me transitioning from my struggle from having it hard to my days now, explains Mista Cain. “I collaborated with Boosie because we came up in the city damn near going through the same things.”
A well-known and respected figure across the South, Mista Cain (born Samuel Nichols) is the founder of Cain Muzik Mafia, a Baton Rouge-based music collective featuring artists such as Scotty Cain, and a mixtape warrior with nearly a decade of rap experience. Legal troubles nearly derailed his promising career when he served two years in jail awaiting trial on a murder charge, a charge for which he was acquitted in late 2015. The rapper reignited his career in a major way in late 2016 and early 2017, sharing “Run Dem Banz,” Mista Cain’s collaboration with Young Dolph and premiering the slice-of-life video for “Made It Out” via Mass Appeal. In early March, Mista Cain shared The Godfather Documentary, a film that gives a glimpse into his post-prison life. Comprised of original footage and clips from interviews, set to the backdrop of Mista Cain’s music, The Godfather Documentary is an insightful glimpse into the life of a beloved street rapper.

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 most recent project Tha Verdict, Mista Cain will continue to release gritty, real street music for an ever expanding audience.
