Have you ever stopped and really listened to the words of a rap song? The majority of us don’t realise what goes into the production of this type of music.
For those of you that are unaware of the genre I am speaking about, Hip-hop is a music genre consisting of stylized, rhythmic music which is often accompanied by rapping, rhyming speech.
I am so impressed with the South African Hip-hop industry. I recently got to have a chat with Cassper Nyovest, a top South African recording artist and record producer. He is currently signed to his own independent music label ‘Family Tree’
Nyovest grew up in the North West Province, in Mafikeng. Despite his heavy up-bringing and circumstances he had to face from such a young age, he has taken the music industry by storm, and has repeatedly proved to us what amazing talent he has.
What makes Cassper such a special artist in my eyes is apart from the huge amount of records he has produced and all the awards he has won, he is such a humble man. All of his songs tell a story, from family, to troubles he has faced, and what fame has brought him.
