Casket D‘s highly anticipated fourth studio album is a conceptual project packed with meaning. At it’s core Beautiful Struggle Dangerous Freedom is a testimony of one’s soul and life. Chipping away at the emotions caused by a harsh environment and the tragedies it brings. Casket isn’t affraid to bare it all in every song. An already personal and introspective artist, Casket takes it up a notch here. On the intro track Beautiful Struggle, he states “The devil got me on trial, God’s my defense attorney”. Speaking to the listeners like a courtoom jury, he bares the weight of his position in his family’s structure and hierarchy. A theme that is recurring throughout the remainder of the album. Alla Most Precious Rose, an ode to his daughter. Displaying vulnerability and anxiousness about fatherhood, Casket wrestles with how to be a great provider for her. Home, a message to his passed loved ones reassuring that they will live on in his heart. Part I proclaiming his mother “is the closest thing to God on Earth” followed by Part II an oath of loyalty to his “brothers” and girl. With Beautiful Struggle Dangerous Freedom, Casket understands exactly what he’s up against and fully delivers on this album.
