THIS IS NOT THE ALBUM is a 12 song mixtape from 18 year old DMV artist CSB Scarti. His third mixtape tells the story of the life of a kid living in the DMV and is a sonic experience from start to finish.

While still being in high school and engaging in a plethora of extracurricular endeavors, Scarti has faced much adversity an struggles while also experiencing euphoric highs and moments that few have witnessed in their lives ever. Whether that be the day to day activities of life in Skyline Plaza, the apartments he grew up in, or the lavish experiences in places like Grandeur, THIS IS NOT THE ALBUM paints a sonic picture for old Scarti fans and new alike.
