Earlier this year, I was introduced to New York-based artist Cautious Clay through a friendly suggestion that just happened to come at the perfect time. Similar to the legend his name plays off of, Cautious Clay entered with a forceful debut on last month's release "Cold War." The production is smooth, and his voice is relaxed but there's nothing about the track that sounds like the product of a rookie. It's apparent Cautious Clay already has a clear vision and knows exactly what lane he wants to create for himself.
