MIC/LINE (formerly named Sound Check) is HYPEBEAST Radio‘s music-centric show that looks to deliver in-depth conversations with your favorite artists, digging into their origin stories and asking the questions you want answered. For our newest episode, we sit down with 10k.caash.
Known as the birthplace of the dougie, stanky legg and shawty wassup dance, Texas has a rich history of creating popular dance trends. It comes as no surprise that the latest dance craze, The Woah, was created by another Texas native, 10k.caash and his crew the Rollie Bros. The young 18 year old, originally from Oak Cliff, popularized the dance on the Triller app back in the summer of 2018. With the likes of Lil Uzi Vert and Drake embracing the dance, it became a cultural phenom.
Using social media to his advantage, 10k.caash has also started a budding rap career, having already opened for A$AP Rocky. In an industry where people find social media to be lucrative yet temporary, 10k.caash tells us how he’s maneuvered the industry to use it to his benefit.
“Most people really do stuff to use people, and in my situation I don’t need anybody, so people feel more comfortable around me a lot.”
Later on, he discusses the controversial topic of Fortnite’s history of appropriating dance moves and his love for video games. Aside from social media, the rapper and dancer says he’s built a strong community within the gaming society and plans to build a future EA sports team. So tune in to hear how this young creator has brought Dallas back on the map and hear him talk shop about video games.
