PREMIERE: Mista Cain Thanks The Good Lord He “Made It Out” In His New Video

“I grew up in a neighborhood where we would get caught in these types of things,” says Baton Rouge rapper Mista Cain, whose name speaks volumes in the Louisiana streets. Four years ago he switched his life up, establishing Cain Muzik Mafia, going hard on his mixtape hustle, and landing a feature on Kevin Gates’ “Change on Me.”  A second-degree murder charge almost derailed his plans, but he was acquitted in 2015 and got back to work on his music.

Today Mass Appeal premieres “Made It Out,” a raw hood vérité video the artist says was “based on a true situation” that helped him get his music career on track and begin a new life. “I was young when I started, I was 15,” he recalls. “I said I’ma work to put this together. This song explains that, like, ‘Thank God I made it out.’ If I was still messing with these troubling situations, then I wouldn’t have made it here. Now I’m good. I put my own focus on myself.”

Mista Cain’s album The Verdict—featuring Boosie Badazz, Young Dolph, Starlito, Trouble, and Chrizz Michaelsdrops March 17th.
