Kassa Overall Signs to Warp, Shares New Single ‘Ready to Ball’

    Seattle-based drummer, producer, and rapper Kassa Overall has announced his signing to Warp Records with a new single called ‘Ready to Ball’. Check it out below.

    “On an emotional level, the song is really dealing with feelings of jealousy,” Overall said of ‘Ready to Ball’ in a statement. “It’s also an affirmation, to not get lost in the hustle of upward mobility. How bad do we want the shiny things? How much will we bend ourselves to get them? At times I feel like, damn bro, it’s so much of a struggle and a hustle to just keep it going that I don’t have time to make sure my mental health and my soul is cool. That’s basically the polarity right there.”

    A protege of drummer Billy Hart and pianist Geri Allen, Overall has released two studio LPs, 2019’s s Go Get Ice Cream and Listen to Jazz and 2020’s I Think I’m Good. He’s also previously collaborated with Yoko Ono, Jon Batiste, Francis and the Lights, and others.
