Chopping Up @CassperNyovest Approach To Using Names In His Albums

SkinnygenesTV-Artwork-15-1Cassper is set to drop his third studio album titled #Thuto tomorrow. The streets are ready to hear the new narrative that he will be taking.

When it comes to music Cassper has an approach which is pure genius.  He not only hits you with music that makes you want to go out there and hustle, Caspper always showcases his family in the music. I am not talking about Family tree but rather the close people that have shaped who he is as a person. There are many characters in his life that he introduces us to. He not only raps about these people but gives us a glimpse on the role they have played in his life.

Here are the hidden meanings in his music and how he uses names in his music
