- Cassper indirectly accused Nota of lying about the whole situation with him and Nasty C
Lavida Nota recently claimed that Cassper Nyovest refused to sign Nasty C to his record label, Family Tree. Nota, who is Kwesta's former manager, told MacG on Podcast and Chill with MacG that Cassper once refused to sign the There There Go hitmaker.
Nota claimed Cass couldn't sign Nasty C because he was scared he would outshine him at his own record label. Nota said he had approached Cass way before Nasty C signed to Def Jam. According to Nota, he told Mufasa:
"Bro, you make enough money now to sign Nasty. And you can sign him before any of these other n*ggas that have got money. Sign him and give him some sh*t *ss deal and help save him before he gets entrapped by other people in this business."
According to Nota, Cass replied:
"He was like, 'I can't sign him because he will look better than me on my own label'."
The Amademoni hitmaker has indirectly addressed Nota's claims. He replied to hip-hop producer Tweezy who asked him on Twitter "what is falling off" following Nota's claims. Cassper responded:
"When you no longer the dude you think you are. When you have to lie cause your reality is not as exciting. When you have to make up theories that suit your narrative but can't prove them. When people have forgotten about your reign and you hate on everything, you have fallen off!"
Tweeps have shared mixed reactions to Cassper's indirect response to Nota. Check out some of their comments below:
"I see Nota written all over this tweet."
"Nota said what needs to be said bro, I give him that... Testimonials shall come after this."
"School them fave, just like you did long time ago about owning masters. They never listen or learn more from you."
"Nota was right though."
In other related news, Briefly.co.za reported that Kwesta was dragged on social media after his former manager trashed Nasty C and Cassper Nyovest's new songs on Friday, 21 August. Nota spilled his feelings on Twitter about Nasty C's Zulu Man and Cass' Bonginkosi featuring Zola 7.
Instead of dealing with Nota, tweeps took to the micro-blogging app and dragged the Ngud' hitmaker. Upon seeing his name trending, Kwesta then decided to set the record straight on his relationship with Nota.
"Ekse. I need everyone to know that @lavidanota and I no longer work together and haven't been for a while now. To those that have been calling me trying to reach him, please contact him directly and to those that have been calling him to reach me, please do the same. Ta."
