Insight: Cassper Nyovest - A.M.N (Any Minute Now) (Album Review)




 Insight is a new segment by Genius Muzik where we offer critic, commentary and review of the culture. Today we look at the latest album by South African rapper Cassper Nyovest.

Artist : Cassper Nyovest
Album : A.M.N (Any Minute Now)
Label : Family Tree/UMG
Release Date: 11 September 2020

The fifth album installment from Cassper Nyovest, is an insightful, expressive, and bold project. With a fusion of different sounds and elements, it has something for everyone. An epitome of “wearing your heart on your sleeve” with his expressive nature at the heart of this project. The titular “Any minute now” is a dedication to the birth of his yet to be born son which could be born any minute from the moment the project was dropped. This project brings into view a reflective Cassper exposing everything and everyone out in the open. 

Each feature brings on board a different component, ”Nokuthula” ft Busiswa is a dance orientated record, coupled with meaningful lyrics. Guest appearance by Samthing Soweto on ”Friday Nights” which pays homage to the legendary Brenda Fassie’s classical hit ”Weekend Special” fuses a soothing vocal tone with beautiful melodies. ”Amademoni” ft Tweezy has an enticing reviving hook, underlining how being resilient and not easily shaken off culminates in triumph, with his success testament to that. 

”Good For That” is fractionally a replica of ”Tito Mboweni” , a typical contemporary Cassper Nyovest sound we’ve become accustomed to. Being in  his element and unrestricted, he blatantly confronts unresolved issues with some high profile figures with lines like “I never called you out when you tried to cheat the game, I stood by you, now you treat me like a b**” on ”To Whom It May Concern” and  “So now I’m forced to smile with nighas like Scoop” on ”Thoughts ” , which somewhat sparked controversy. The appearance of musical maestro Zola 7 on ”Bonginkosi” culminated in a heartwarming, gospel themed, and moving jam which a vast majority of music listeners in general would resonate with.  Casper continues to forge relationships with international acts as evident with features from  Boogie and Anthony Hamilton to give the album an all round cross over appeal. 


Following the success of his platinum selling albums Thuto and Sweet & Short , A.M.N has its work cut out. Each album highlights his individual growth not only as an MC but also as a person in general, A.M.N is no exception however, this time his soon to born son is his muse.

Despite his level of success and influence, the undertone of the majority of the songs on this album feel like he is still looking for approval and acceptance.My instant reaction to this project was of mixed feelings, one part of me feels it’s  an insightful yet controversial album another part of me feels it’s a beautiful lyrically crafted piece of art with so many quotable lines. Well it’s a combination of both. If there’s one thing I’m utmost certain about though, is that this album caters for just about everyone’s preference. There’s dance, trap, rap, gospel themed songs and even a dose of motswako magic. For that i’d deservingly give it a rating of 9/10.

Insight: Nasty C - Zulu Man With Some Power [ Album Review ]



 

NASTY C

Insight is a new segment by Genius Muzik where we offer critic, commentary and review of the culture. On our first review we look at the biggest album in the world right now by South African rapper Nasty C.

Artist : Nasty C
Album : Zulu Man With Some Power
Label : Def Jam Recordings/UMGRelease 
Date: 28 August 2020

Zulu Man With Some Power

Nasty C’s 3rd studio album is a mission statement addressing and breaking stereotypes. Cementing his mark on the international scene, this project is an answer to public outcry. 

Taking reprimands and broad criticism in his stride, he creates a masterpiece with his cultural roots intact. ”Eazy” highlights how he copes and deals with everything that transpires around him. ”Zulu Man” is a steamroller conveying a meaningful message of his early rapping days and habits that ultimately led him to where he is right now. Contrary to popular belief that he is an incompetent vernac rapper, in this record not only does he put those claims to bed but furthermore displays his versatility and lyrical prowess. 

The standout feature with T.I., one of the pioneers of the sub-genre of trap hip-hop music, Nasty C demonstrates that it is possible for a black child from Africa to rub shoulders with the elite. ”They don’t” addresses racial injustices and police brutality upon civilians. The beautifully crafted melodies coupled with empowering lyrics, makes this project one not to miss. It instills pride in one’s culture, the widely overlooked black race in particular from Africa is highly represented. 

I personally see this project as a “crux” in comparison to his previous work, primarily because he evidently displays his versatile rapping skills particularly in his native Zulu language and for the mere fact he tackles societal issues such trigger-happy police nature leading up to unaccounted murders of people of colour.  He used his powerful and influential voice across South African shores to craft a potent project.


I’d unapologetically give this album a rating of  8/10.

According to Nigerian blogger, Abbey's Chronicles:


''The lyrics of this song takes us through an emotional tale that revolves around the pain of betrayal, death of a loved one and losing trust in people and friendships. There’s a bit of everything in there that each of us as listeners can relate to, I for one can relate to the feeling he protrayed of being betrayed by someone I once considered as family and I’m still dealing with that hurt.''

''As saddening as most of this song was there was still a display of strength and conviction of better days to come on this track,and that really makes this song even more well rounded to me. ''

AP Venom x Pauletta-2018 | Lyrics

Hook
-You’re covered in scars, you’re hurting
-But when you burn you learn
-I know one thing for certain
-you’re the definition of a soldier now, warrior
-I need you to hold it down
-They can hate if they want
- I won’t be phased, I won’t run
-Definition of a soldier now

Verse 1
-I say…
-Sum up 2018 in one word, lessons
-Sum up all your lessons in one word, blessings
-I found me a home in many hearts, too many mansions
-I’m not about to call nobody out, too many mentions
-When the road got rough, I hit the road and stayed healthy
-Enemies think they’ve got me figured out, they never met me
-Damn lately, I’ve been going through a lot of changes
-But I’m only going through them I promise they won’t change me
-I also made a lot of what we call friends
-Most of them won’t even text first
-Well, except for when they need help
-You see then, when life got ‘em drowning in the deep end
-The only time they realise there’s you in this existence, but oh well
-What can I do, I’m only human
-I can only whish them well, happy new years
-it’s true, yes. This year I’ll be quick to close curtains

Hook
-You’re covered in scars, you’re hurting
-But when you burn you learn
-I know one thing for certain
-you’re the definition of a soldier now, warrior
-I need you to hold it down
-They can hate if they want
- I won’t be phased, I won’t run
-Definition of a soldier now

Verse 2
-If there’s one thing I know that I’m not, selfish
-But people are weird, people are twisted
-I learned when you have a good heart, they take advantage
-But it never really gets them far, check their mileage
-A conversation about somebody’s life, don’t even start it
-Hit me up with something that could get us money in our pockets
-Tread carefully, gossip gets you misinformed
-Wonder why you always see me with my headphones on
-Last year I had to learn to cut people off
-Met a nigga in need, treated him like he’s my brother
-And I did it just to help him, not for favours
-But the same person had the nerves to steal from me
-Had me asking myself, like, am I kind or stupid
-I’m kind of stupid, I guess
-I fed you when no one would, how could you do me like that
-You don’t get what you give, I had to learn that fact
-I’m no longer who I was back then

Hook
-You’re covered in scars, you’re hurting
-But when you burn you learn
-I know one thing for certain
-you’re the definition of a soldier now, warrior
-I need you to hold it down
-They can hate if they want
- I won’t be phased, I won’t run
-Definition of a soldier now

Verse 3
-Man, I got real messed up second semester
-In September I lost my Grandpa
-Then in October I lost my Grandma
-To Grandma the queen who brought me up
-You said you wouldn’t make it, but I had my fingers crossed
-But you saw ahead of time, you were right all along
-You wouldn’t be around by the time I got this job, I’m really cross
-My goal was to get you everything you wanted
-I guess fate didn’t allow it
-It brings me so much pain when I think about it
-That I devised a plan, but it fell flat
-Time to face facts and really accept that time will never turn back
-And I can just sit back and blame it on the setbacks that I’ve had but instead, I’m just sad
-I need a life saver, my heart is drowning deep in regret
-Didn’t come and see you just as much as I should have
-it’s too late, I still remember when
-I told lame jokes and had you crack up, damn I really miss that
-Though my heart is filled with should have beens and could have beens

-In my heart you will never die, may you rest in peace…please
