South African youngster, Nasty C, is really gearing up for the release of his album titled “STRINGS AND BLINGS”. The project is currently undergoing finishing touches. Within the last week, he teased us with a collaboration with American rapper, A$AP Ferg, who is a prominent member of the A$AP Mob.
His new single titled “King” is a Trappy and groovy jam with heavy kicks and hard bass lines. And the percussion does not sound bad at all. The instrumental was supplied by Tweezy, who is also working with Nasty on the forthcoming album.
Alongside “King”, he also drops another single off the album titled “Jungle”. This has a heavier sound, and the 20-year-old “Bad Hair” rapper takes it upon himself to murder the beat. With ample afro-rolls and samples, this is one jam that exudes Nasty’s skills.
Over the years, Nasty C has done his best to show to us that he’s one of the best African cats to ever grab a microphone.Not only is he one of the best, he is also a beast. With co-sign’s from top rappers like Cassper Nyovest, AKA and even M.I Abaga; Nasty C is, no doubt has a big bright future ahead of him.
Nasty C is currently signed to Mabala Noise Entertainment. And he will be proving his superiority over fellow SA rapper A-Reece once his album drops. It seems he might come to dethrone Cassper Nyovest and AKA soon. Then he’ll be like “sho mo age mi ni?”
In other news, Falz’s chart-topping Video, “This Is Nigeria” has broken the 3 million-view mark on Youtube. It didn’t only surpass, it has been watched an additional 181k times after that. On the morning of June 1, the figure was at 2.7m. And this simply means the the video takes up an average of 400k views daily.
This is Nigeria, where a top rapper can barely get 100k views to his video. So this is definitely a big deal. The satiric track was released May 25, 2018 by Falz.
As at press time, the Video directed by Geezy, sits at well over 2.9m views. Fela must be proud.
