LAUSSE THE CAT: The mysterious rapper from the UK
LAUSSE THE CAT released his first track on Soundcloud over four years ago and his identity still remains a mystery. He combines lo-fi beats with jazzy samples and introspective verses about drug addiction, sex, and his internal battles. LAUSSE THE CAT is in his own lane and brings something really unique and fresh to UK hip hop scene. Even with over 500,000 streams on Soundcloud, we haven’t heard anything from him since 2019.
You’d love LAUSSE THE CAT if you like Tyler The Creator, Loyle Carner or Lord Apex.
What Do We Know About LAUSSE THE CAT?
He’s performed a handful of times and wears a mask each time. We know barely anything about LAUSSE THE CAT’s real identity. According to COLORS X STUDIOS, he’s Leeds-based and London-born. On his instagram, he only has two posts and notes the artist who’s created all of his graphics, cals.castle.
In order to succeed in the music industry, social media presence is pushed on most artists. While, he succeeds at being mysterious and leaving us strictly with his musical creations. But in fact, there are many Reddit threads exploring his possible identity and whereabouts today.
His Tracks Are Reflective
I’ve honestly never heard anything like this before. LAUSSE THE CAT’s music takes influence from Chilled Cow’s Youtube channel “Lofi Hip Hop beats to relax/study to” and adds dialogue from unknown movies, while he takes instrumental breaks and raps about his misfortunes. Songs like “Redstripe Rhapsody” and “Coco Channel” are calming with a hint of self loathing and self-observation. The honesty in his tracks are very relatable for anyone who struggles with self worth and uses any substances or relationships to cope.
What’s Next for LAUSSE THE CAT?
As a big fan, hopefully we’ll get another project from the self proclaimed Lord of the Bins, Prince of Cats. His music is making small waves in the Europe and the UK with features from unknown artists, so hopefully he’ll cross over to the U.S. soon.
Maybe we’ll get a merch drop? Or a mixtape? Or a face reveal? Who knows.
