Consequence & His Young Son Partner Up for a Powerful Future (Audio)
At only four-years-old, Caiden is a burgeoning MC whose bloodline is imbued with enough Hip-Hop influence to last a lifetime. As the son of Queens, New York’s Consequence, Caiden has already made his rapping debut, appearing alongside his dad on “That Dude,” a single Cons dropped in December. According to Vibe, that makes Caiden the youngest spitter to ever appear on a Rap song, an achievement the youngster will be able to beam about well into old age. And, as if that wasn’t impressive enough, Caiden also made history earlier this month when he made a run for the tenth spot on XXL‘s forthcoming Freshman 2016 issue.
Earlier this week, Cons and Caiden returned with another collaboration, this one taking on the familiar trope of familial inheritance in the form of “Heir to the Throne.” Also featuring Renée Neufville of Zhané and Jesse Blum, the collab is produced by Consequence and Mike Cash, the same creative minds behind last year’s “That Dude.” “Heir to the Throne” is a soulful cut infused with Jazz horns that is very much in Cons’ wheelhouse, but it’s much more than a few minutes of a dad bragging about his son. Most of it is chock-full of advice, not only for Caiden but for all young boys. As the first release from next month’s Growing Up In New York E.P., it features Caiden’s voice on not only the hook but in a verse which adorably ends with his saying “my name is Caiden, AKA the crown holder.”
