Over the past few years, Cassper Nyovest has risen from an underdog into one of Africa’s biggest acts and he’s not afraid to assert his status. The South African MC has taken on AKA, sold out the dome and paved the way for independent acts attemptingto take on the big machines which exist across music industries around the world.
In his Breakfast Club interview, Cassper allows his confidence to show without coming off as cocky. He addresses the floating stage used as he filled up the Dome in 2015, a concept that was later employed by Kanye during the 2016 Life of Pablo Tour. He speaks about his rise from the ashes and the moves he and his team employed while giving insight on some of the similarities across the South African and American markets. He further speaks on some of the content off Thuto and expatiates on some of the inner meaning of the lines off the album before going on to reveal some future plans.
Nyovest speaks on some of his international collaborations thus far and what they’ve meant to him, hustling to get ahead and the possibility of signing with a record label.
Cassper is Africa’s biggest hip hop act and nobody can steal his shine.
