John Owens (born 19 December 1975), better known by his stage name Casual, is an American rapper and record producer from Oakland, California. He is one of the founding members of the alternative hip hop collective Hieroglyphics. After his 1994 debut album Fear Itself garnered both critical and commercial success, Casual went on to become one of the most prominent members on the Hieroglyphics roster. Despite an absence of both sales and critical acclaim of his albums that followed his debut, Casual has garnered a following amongst devoted hip hop fans, particularly in the Bay Area hip hop scene, largely due to his specialisation in hardcore battle rhymes.
