Cassper Nyovest says his collaboration with Anthony Hamilton 'Egyptian Cotton' happened via WhatsApp.
"Egyptian Cotton" is one of the many fan-favourites on Cassper Nyovest's latest album A.M.N (Any Minute Now). "Egyptian Cotton" is a luxury rap tune that sees the producer The Gobbla channelling J.U.S.T.I.C.E League and Cassper rapping, "Egyptian cotton, I sleep in peace while you speak of me" (ishu!), which explains why many fans feel the song needed a verse from Rick Ross.
The hook on "Egyptian Cotton" is sung by neo-soul icon Anthony Hamilton. In an interview with DJ Cuppy on her Apple Music show African Now Radio last week Friday, Nyovest revealed how the collaboration came about. "He's such a dope guy because believe it or not, me and Anthony Hamilton made a song through WhatsApp," said the rap superstar.
