Back in February Cal Scruby released the audio for “Gold Coins”, and today he releases a professional video for the track. While the video makes Cal look like a million bucks and is super clean, I hope he gets a lil more unique with his treatments for future releases. As you can hear right after the beat drops, this kid has some unbelievable talent: he can spit, sounds unique, and can cover topics from party tracks to serious topics and not seem corny. With some memorable video treatments that have this kind of quality, the sky is the limit for this Ohio native. He is easily one of our favorite upcoming emcees and should be on everyone’s radar for the rest of 2014. Enjoy!
