Cassper Nyovest Goes Reggae In 'No Worries'

Watch Cassper Nyovest's workingman visuals for the reggae-influenced single "No Worries."


“I’m a 21st century black man, but I still don’t wear no suit / Never steal, never rob mister white man, please put your guns down don’t shoot me,” croons Cassper Nyovest in his new reggae-tinged single “No Worries.” The socially conscious track chronicles the mindset of the everyday workingman—a departure from the electro-pop of recent single “Travel The World” and his beef song against AKA.

The accompanying music video follows Cassper as he plays a poor but stress-free man roaming around Johannesburg. The clip includes scenes of the South African rapper walking barefoot in front of the massive TicketPro Dome, where he will play his sold out #FillUpTheDome concert tomorrow night in front of roughly 20,000 people—a show Cassper's been heavily promoting for months now.
