Did you know the Oakland rapper Casual is actually Santa Claus? Yes, he is. The Fat Man in the White Suit is real, living on the warm side of the Bay, and has been hanging out with the Hieroglyphics crew. Proof has arrived today, in the new form of a song in which the rapper Casual admits that he is the real Mr. Claus. Its title: "Santa Claus." Its placement: First on a new four-song EP. The opening track is more than a little goofy, though it's also filled with good rapping and a lovely jazz guitar sample.

But that is all to be expected. Though he's very busy delivering presents around this time of year, Casual is also a #RapGod, remember:

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
