- Cassper Nyovest is very happy that someone he has always looked up to paused to give him some praise
- According to him, Talib Kweli, the US rapper, called him a great rapper
- Cassper has received recognition from abroad before, but this was special to him
Cassper Nyovest was so excited that an international star he looks up to gave him some recognition that he had to tell his fans on social media.
The rapper said that Talib Kweli Greene, the American rapper, entrepreneur, and activist called him a 'great rapper'.
Cassper has always looked up to Talib, so this nod of appreciation means a lot to him.
"I read a tweet where the legendary Talib Kweli was having an exchange of words with a follower and his sentence contained the phrase 'a great rapper named Cassper Nyovest'."
This isn't the first time that an American has given Cassper credit for his achievements.
Briefly.co.za reported earlier that Mufasa got awesome recognition and praise on a US radio show, The Breakfast Club.
The show is focused on hip-hop culture and artists and is one of the best places to give exposure to the genre's different aspects. Cassper's performances, as well as his business savvy, received compliments.
Cassper, who isn't shy to praise himself, may tick people off and get labelled as vain, but he's getting attention from others in the entertainment world - that's not something that can be disproved, even if it can be argued with.
