Cassper Nyovest Drops Fire Verse on Up-and-coming Rapper Mass The Difference’s ‘What’s Wrong With Me?’ Song

Listen to Mass The Difference's new song, featuring Cassper Nyovest.

Cassoer Nyovest was so impressed with up-and-coming rapper Mass The Difference's skills, he jumped on one of his songs, and dropped a show-stealing verse.


In his verse, the superstar rapper addresses haters, questions Twitter outrage ("Twitter shit is a lie, if niggas get away with beating girls on Instagram live, then the outrage is temporary"), lets us know that music industry is a scam, and gives his take on young women who sleep with married men for money.

He raps:

"Bitches acting like they working for the rags, you fool me/ Meanwhile these married men is paying for these bags and shoes/ Hope you know that these girls are depressed by you/ It's fucked up, cuz they busy chasing the life you selling 'em/ You can't afford it yourself, sleeping with married men for money/ And act like you working and post Fendi bags/ Glorified prostitution, and you barely care"

Mass The Difference is a potent lyricist with a delivery that's just as smooth as it is raw. He laces "What's Wrong With Me?" with sincere raps and a catchy vocal hook.

Yesterday, Nyovest retweeted a clip of a Mass The Difference song yesterday, and said he would jump on the song. According to the MC, he recorded his verse for the song yesterday morning, and shot a clip for his verse in the evening.

"What's Wrong With Me?" is a great mellow joint. The only flaw everyone should be able to pick up is the sloppy mixing and mastering, as Nyovest's vocals get a bit too loud. But this is probably just an un-mastered version.

Listen to 10 Great Songs From Johnny Clegg

Here are some of the best songs to remember South Africa's son of the soil.

Yesterday, it was confirmed that South African musician, Johnny Clegg, passed away after a long battle with cancer.

Understandably, heartfelt tributes have been pouring in ever since. Long before it was cool (or even legal) to be in close proximity to blackness and anything attached to it in South Africa, Clegg, a white man, was doing just that. That is exactly why he was given the endearing title of South Africa's "son of the soil."

Growing up during Apartheid, Clegg was taught how to speak the Zulu language by a domestic worker named Charlie Mzila. In his teenage years, his appreciation for the Zulu culture continued and he soon learnt the traditional dance styles known as isishameni and also learnt how to play the Maskandi guitar. Clegg's music was a beacon of light during a very dark time in South Africa's history and his songs about Nelson Mandela (at a time where songs were banned for merely mentioning the name of the late statesman and other key struggle activists) brought the country together.

It is irrefutable that a music giant has fallen. However, Clegg leaves behind a wealth of music featuring other great South African artists and groups such as Zakwe, Brenda Fassie, Miriam Makeba, Hugh Masekela and Juluka/Suvuka, among several others. His music undeniably brought South Africans and people all around the world together.

We've picked ten of our favorite songs from the late musician's discography in honor of a life that was lived to the fullest.

Beyoncé Wore These 2 African Designers in Her Music Video for 'Spirit'

Queen Bey continues to include and give a nod to African talent in her visuals.

As we draw even closer to Disney's The Lion King opening in theaters this week, Beyoncé continues to lead the way with her new music video for "Spirit"—the first single off of the film's album she produced and curated, The Lion King: The Gift.

Shot in the Havasu Falls in Arizona's Grand Canyon, Beyoncé and her legion of beautiful dancers are one with nature and its various elements as she beckons us to be brave and hear the calling of spirit. As we noted when she announced the album, the track opens with a call and response in Swahili that translates to "Long live the king": Uishi kwa mda mrefu mfalme—uishi kwa.

Keeping our eyes peeled for African influences in the music video, it's evident that is seen in the choreography. We even spotted our extended fam with the afrobeats moves—the AVO Boys: Stephen Ojo and Caleb Bonney—as two of her dancers in the video.

Beyoncé continues to also give a nod to African talent through the looks she donned in "Spirit" styled by her mainstay, Zerina Akers.

Take a look at the two African designers she wore in the video below.
