Cassper Nyovest Throws A Massive Block Party In 'Mama I Made It'

South African rapper Cassper Nyovest shares his latest music video for "Mama I Made It," shot in his hometown of Mafikeng.


Cassper Nyovest celebrates his success in his latest single "Mama I Made It." The visuals for the booming hip-hop track were shot in the South African rapper's hometown of Mafikeng, where the MC throws a super live block party that has the whole neighborhood jamming out. The visuals follow Cassper as he flashes fancy cars, pops champagne on roof tops, and cruises on a segway with his friends throughout the 4-minute festivities. The single, whose chorus is a likely nod to Drake and Soulja Boy's "We Made It," also sees the MC referencing his recent "Fuck The Money" collaboration with Talib Kweli. Check out the full visuals for "Mama I Made It" below and look out for our upcoming feature on Cassper Nyovest and AKA's beef coming soon.

Interview: Wavy The Creator Is Ready to See You Now

The multidisciplinary Nigerian-American artist on tapping into all her creative outlets, creating interesting things, releasing a new single and life during quarantine.

A trip canceled, plans interrupted, projects stalled. It is six months now since Wavy the Creator has had to make a stop at an undisclosed location to go into quarantine and get away from the eye of the pandemic.

The professional recording artist, photographer, writer, fashion artist, designer, and evolving creative has been spending all of this time in a house occupied by other creatives. This situation is ideal. At least for an artist like Wavy who is always in a rapid motion of creating and bringing interesting things to life. The energy around the house is robust enough to tap from and infuse into any of her numerous creative outlets. Sometimes, they also inspire trips into new creative territories. Most recently, for Wavy, are self-taught lessons on a bass guitar.

Wavy's days in this house are not without a pattern, of course. But some of the rituals and personal rules she drew up for herself, like many of us did for internal direction, at the beginning of the pandemic have been rewritten, adjusted, and sometimes ditched altogether. Some days start early and end late. Some find her at her sewing machine fixing up thrift clothes to fit her taste, a skill she picked up to earn extra cash while in college, others find her hard at work in the studio, writing or recording music.
