Cassie Ray had a productive 2019, with the Chicago-based hip-hop artist releasing five singles. 2020 looks to be another active one, with new track “Acting Up” continuing the artist’s emotive blend of R&B and hip-hop. Presently in Italy serving in the United States Air Force, Cassie Ray (the alias of Chicago-born Matthew L. White) also is a photographer, painter, and involved in the fashion industry. Opening for acts like Fat Joe, Adrian Marcel, and Trinidad James, Cassie Ray is certainly on the rise. “Acting Up” nicely emphasizes Cassie Ray’s talents, with lush beats and melodic vocals combining for an accessible yet emotional sound.
“Acting Up” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of January 2020’ Spotify playlist.
