Cassper Nyovest has responded to a fan's question about why it is that artists' first albums are usually their greatest.
According to Mufasa, it has everything to do with the time put into the album and its content.
For most artists, their first album only becomes reality after they've spent years trying to release it, so a lot of planning goes into it.
After that, Cassper says, the following albums get released within months.

He also added that fear plays a role - artists are scared they won't be able to please fans any more or lose their reputation and success.
"Time, your first album is made or planned in your head for about 10 years, everything after that is made in a few months.
"The other thing is fear, the first album is made from a fearless point of view, everything after that is tryna maintain or not fall off."
