Listen to Cassper Nyovest’s New Single ‘Hase Mo States’

Listen to another kwaito banger by Cassper Nyovest.

Cassper Nyovest's latest single "Hase Mo States" is another one in which the rapper draws inspiration from kwaito. The song's title makes reference to a Brothers of Peace song of the same name, and the hook is appropriated from Kabelo's "For As Long As Ng'saphefumula."


Cassper Nyovest has been on a kwaito streak since he announced his fourth album, which has no title and release date yet. He started by releasing "Getsa Getsa 2.0," which sampled Doc Shebeleza's song of the same name, two months ago.

"Hase Mo States" is a song you'll either love and have on repeat, or bump once and never come back to it, it's one of those.

Interview

Sarkodie Is Not Feeling Any Pressure

The elite Ghanaian rapper affirms his king status with this seventh studio album, No Pressure.

Sarkodie is one of the most successful African rappers of all time. With over ten years of industry presence under his belt, there's no question about his prowess or skin in the game. Not only is he a pioneer of African hip-hop, he's also the most decorated African rapper, having received over 100 awards from close to 200 nominations over the span of his career.

What else does Sarkodie have to prove? For someone who has reached and stayed at the pinnacle of hip-hop for more than a decade, he's done it all. But despite that, he's still embracing new growth. One can tell just by listening to his latest album, No Pressure, Sarkodie's seventh studio album, and the follow-up to 2019's Black Love which brought us some of the Ghanaian star's best music so far. King Sark may be as big as it gets, but the scope of his music is still evolving.

Sonically, No Pressure is predominantly hip-hop, with the first ten tracks offering different blends of rap topped off with a handful of afrobeats and, finally, being crowned at the end with a gospel hip-hop cut featuring Ghanaian singer MOG. As far as the features go, Sark is known for collaborating mostly with his African peers but this time around he branches out further to feature a number of guests from around the world. Wale, Vic Mensa, and Giggs, the crème de la crème of rap in America and the UK respectively all make appearances, as well as Nigeria's Oxlade, South Africa's Cassper Nyovest, and his fellow Ghanaian artists Darkovibes and Kwesi Arthur.
