South African King of rap Nasty C, graces the cover of Ace Digital and Print magazine, Tush Magazine 20th issue as they celebrate 6 years of operations.“My age does the exact opposite of putting pressure on me,” he says.
“When people hear the songs and try to embrace the talent, they think I am way older. But when they meet me, they go ‘So you are this young? That means you are crazy though” Nasty C.
Nasty C, who just recently released his highly anticipated sophomore album titled “Strings and Bling” shares his journey, struggles and work ethics in an exciting conversation with music journalist Joey Akan for the Magazine. The album contains 17 tracks and features the likes of A$AP Rocky and Kaien-Cruz.
The 23-year old rapper who first dropped his debut project when he was 19 has thus far grown and mastered his craft to become one of the leading hip-hop artistes the African continent can boast of.
“Not that I don’t like competition. I am not the type of person to provoke other people to generate a reaction. But I like to be confident, and I have to see myself as the best,” he said. “Rap gave me the confidence I needed when I was younger, when I was 9 years old. It gave me a voice, it gave me friends, and it gave me an understanding of myself, and brought out so much in me that I couldn’t find any other way. Most importantly, it made me happy” Nasty C.
The rapper took to social media to share the good news with his fans, who obviously were happy for the star and his achievements.
