The 25-year-old rapper admitted to Sway that he is currently the most paid rapper in SA, while laughing about it. He talks about competition in the industry, race, and groupies.

While introducing himself, Cassper noted that he is the ‘Kanye West of South Africa’, in terms of artistry, “most loved, and most hated, he said. He explains what America means to him, saying “We admire America, America is like home.”  He further talks about his childhood, leaving school and being raised by parents who are both teachers.

Towards the end of the interview, Sway got a call from a listener who wanted to battle Cass, he declined, and the listener continued but did not impress anyone in the studio. Cassper free-styled like any other guest, filled with excitement he got off track and continued acapella.
