Just months before his graduation from Cass Tech, the 19-year-old Detroit rapper known as, Curtis Roach, independently released his breakthrough mixtape, 2017’s Highly Caffeinated, which is an incredibly well-rounded and seamlessly produced homage to an era of hip-hop that precedes him.

A self-described “music-head,” Roach has long admired the work and style of rappers Tyler the Creator and Chance the Rapper, and takes notes from rock acts like Jimi Hendrix, Tame Impala, and Rage Against the Machine. Early on though, Roach gravitated toward the classics, admitting to jamming out to Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder when he was still in diapers, so you already know the music is fire!!
