YET ANOTHER LYRICAL LUMINARY...


3-TIME HBO DEF POET, AND BRAVE NEW VOICES NATIONAL POETRY SLAM CHAMPION, MY BOY RAFAEL CASAL DEFINITELY HAS THE SKILLS TO PAY THE BILLS (that's what the kids are saying these days, right?).


Hip-hop artist, rapper, spoken word artist, slam champion poet, and founding member of the Getback Crew, Rafael "A.D." Casal is one of those artists that command attention almost immediately. In an era where ring tone music, lyrical deficiency, and dirty words dominantly pollute the airwaves, he offers a clean break by offering a new voice crisp and rich with swagger, style, and craft. Rafael's lyrical ability maintains a perfect balance between literary integrity and indisputable wit, offering a beguiling new force in both the spoken word and hip-hop worlds.
I COULDN'T HAVE SAID IT BETTER. RAFAEL IS NOT ONLY A PERFORMER, AS HIS SKILLS HAVE LED HIM TO WRITE PLAYS WITH OTHER THEATRICAL BIGWIGS. HE PERFORMS LIVE WITH HIS COHORTS THE GETBACK CREW, AND ONCE I GO BACK HOME (bay area, ca) I'M DEFINITELY CATCHING A SHOW.  HE'S A COOL GUY AND WASN'T A BAD JUNIOR PROM DATE (lol). CHECK OUT SOME MUSIC AND VIDEOS FROM MR.CASAL BELOW.  


IF YOU'RE FEELING HIM NOW, (and you know you are)...CHECK OUT ONE HIS STELLAR PERFORMANCES ON HBO. BRACE YOURSELF....
