- Cassper Nyovest took to Twitter to call himself a trailblazer of South African hip hop sound despite the haters
- The rapper was responding to a video clip of three show hosts discussing how they were wrong about dismissing Cass's sound last year as it is now being replicated by other artists
- Cassper tweeted that he has always paved the way, despite being mocked, and that haters eventually agree with him
Cassper Nyovest took to social media to respond to a video clip of three show hosts discussing how their opinions had changed about a sound that Cassper had on his tracks in 2019 and that they had said missed the mark.
The hosts were discussing how many artists were now implementing the sounds a year later. Cassper took the opportunity to say that he has always faced criticism because he is a trailblazer who paves the way.
Cass continued his response by saying that people have mocked and underestimated him throughout his career but that he has always proved them wrong in the end.
Cassper referred specifically to his album Short and Sweet when he spoke about an album that people criticised but then turned around and said was actually influential in its sound.
One fan responded to Cass by saying:
@Mjereza231: "Cass don't care what these hip hop pundits say sweet n short ya beda finish n klaar. It's important to take positive criticism, you are an amazing artist no doubt, a hip hop icon mara when an album is not good it's not fam... This takes nothing away from the good you've done"
