People are born every day with a gift or a talent. Casino’s just happened to be writing. Born Malcolm Richardson to parents Noah and Susan Richardson, Casino was introduced to reading and writing at an early age. At the time both of his parents were heavily involved in politics and the still present race issues that were enveloping our country. It was in this type of atmosphere that Casino learned to read, write, and, more important, to question what he was reading. It wasn’t until moving back to Austin in 1994 that Casino took his first steps toward becoming an MC. Teaming up with school friend and young Austin rapper N.O.O.K., Casino began his career in 1995 by becoming one of Nook’s hype men. During his three years with Nook, Casino found himself moving three different times. First to Worcester MA, then to Houston TX, where he attended the University of Houston, and finally to San Francisco. All the while, picking up the hip-hop culture from each area and blending it into his ever-growing repertoire of rap. Casino has released 10 different albums and mixtapes with his former groups, Black Hands and Gutta Gang, & L.O.P., as well as solo projects with the likes of DJ's Rapid Ric, Curren$y, Hella Yella, and Latin Prince. Already with one regional hit under his belt "GameTime" he's poised and ready for worldwide success!!!
