It’s no secret that Black Coffee’s name is among the big leagues in the industry and has definitely earned the respect he gets. His hard work has gained him the international recognition he is receiving allowing him to make allies with big names.
Who can forget that legendary video clip of Black Coffee playing at the 2019 Oscars after-party hosted by Queen Beyoncé and her husband Jay Z. Or that other memorable clip of Canadian rapper Drake fanning out Black Coffee as he is playing at a gig. Those were two of the moments that elevated Black Coffee’s GOAT status.
Recently Cassper sat down with Slikour and revealed why he sees Black Coffee as his inspiration. He was left enthused at how far the DJ has come and all the great things he has achieved.
Cassper revealed that Black Coffee has both these international stars’ numbers on speed dial! The rapper told the former rapper Slikour, that Coffee has occasional chats with Drake and Jay Z from time to time. As a rapper himself who is slowly making his mark in the international scene, Cass jokingly stated how he’d like to send a voice not of himself rapping and send the clip to Drake.
“The same way I showed you WhatsApp conversation with Anthony Hamilton, Black Coffee showed me conversations with Drake. He was like, “I was talking to Drake…”, I’m like “Whaaat the f*ck?” said the rapper.
He then revealed that he saw a conversation Coffee had with Jay Z just having a friendly chat, with Jay asking Coffee where he is.
“He showed me texts with Jay-Z the other day. He was talking to Jay-Z and Jay-Z was asking him where is he in the world, imagine. Imagine getting a text from Jigga saying ‘Yo man, I don’t even know where you’re in the world but I’m tryna do this’ and I’m like yho!”
Drake had previously sampled Black Coffee’s Superman featuring Bucie a few years back. He did a song with Jorja Smith called Get It Together.
The rapper even chilled with the Carter’s at Diddy’s mansion a few years back and explained that as a defining moment in his career. He revealed on Trending SA that it stems from him wanting to work with certain people in his career.
“Most of my defining moments are more personal. I look at myself and the things I want to achieve. For instance, being at Puff Diddy’s house comes from who do I want to work with,” said the DJ.
“Getting a text from Jay-Z to play at his party is something I can’t post because it’s not a gig and more things come out of it. Most of the things that I achieve are personal,” he said.
Coffee has secured his place at the big leagues’ table as he had shared snaps of him mingling and sharing drinks with Nas, Alicia Keys and Swizz Beats, just to name a few.
