Listen to Cassper Nyovest’s New Trap Banger ‘Ksazobalit’

"Ksazobalit" is here.

South African rapper Cassper Nyovest just released the single he promised earlier this week. Titled "Ksazobalit," the song will definitely be a staple in clubs and radio.


It takes inspiration from Migos, with the hook delivered as a one-line chant. This has been Nyovest's style of hooks for his singles for a while; remember "Doc Shebeleza" and "Tito Mboweni."

"Ksazobalit" offers nothing new or mind-blowing from the rapper. He's flaunting his riches and telling his rags-to-riches story as usual, with lines like:

"I came up from the dirt/ and I tripled my worth/ It's a gift and a curse/ But it could have been worse"

This one is poised to get big; it ticks all the boxes of a Nyovest hit—a catch hook, lofty lines and a beat that knocks hard. And fans are already eating it up.
