March 11, 2023 Kassa Overall Shares New Song “Ready To Ball”: Listen

Seattle jazz drummer, producer, and rapper Kassa Overall is already a sought-after collaborator and solo artist. He’s released two studio albums (Go Get Ice Cream And Listen To Jazz (2019) and I Think I’m Good (2020)), he’s a protege of drummer Billy Hart and pianist Geri Allen, and he’s previously worked with Yoko Ono, Jon Batiste, and Francis And The Lights. Now, Overall is announcing his signing to Warp Records and releasing a new song, “Ready To Ball.”

“On an emotional level, the song is really dealing with feelings of jealousy,” Overall explains. “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.”
