While ‘Jungle’ sees a more aggressive Nasty C re-enter the music scene, it’s the “fake-woke” who are skating on thin ice on ‘King.’ The song, produced by South Africa’s Tweezy, is a tongue-in-cheek look at misguided youth who refer to themselves as “young kings.”
King features American rapper, A$AP Ferg, who recorded his verse during a visit to South Africa. “It’s not like I’m calling myself king,” explained Nasty C. “It’s about these kids who talk too much and I’m mocking the term ‘king’ because of how those guys call each other that.” On ‘King,’ Nasty C raps about visiting places like Kenya, Nigeria and Ghana and waxes lyrical about feeding women jollof rice. Travelling has given the 21-year-old a wealth of experience to pour into his new music and he is thrilled to share it all in Strings And Bling.
Strings And Bling is Nasty C’s first release through Universal Music Group Africa and the team in Nigeria shared their excitement about the opportunities for this talented artist within the market.
