Download Mafikeng rapper Cassper Nyovest's latest #FamilyTreeFridays single "Strive."

Mafikeng rapper Cassper Nyovest stays on course with his free #FamilyTreeFridays releases with "Strive," a Ganja Beatz-produced boom-bap head banger. The loosy single sees the South African star in candid storytelling mode, going in over the guitar lick-sampling beat and even busting out a solid Bone Thugs-n-Harmony-influenced flow around the three-minute mark. For more from Cassper Nyovest, revisit his recent feature on DJ Speedsta‘s “Special Somebody” alongside Boyznbucks‘s Riky Rick and get acquainted with his previous #FamilyTreeFridays singles “Ghetto ft. DJ Drama and "Hey There." Also, rewatch our Okayafrica TV episode with Cassper Nyovest and Talib Kweli in Johannesburg. Stream and download Cassper Nyovest's latest single "Strive" below.
