Johannesburg – Nasty C is readying his highly anticipated second album, Strings and Bling

In the build up to the release the rapper breezed back onto the music scene with two new singles: King and Jungle.

Produced by American beat-smith, Cody Rhones, Jungle is a trap-happy song. It is also a meditation on the artist’s experience of the concrete jungle that is Johannesburg. 

“The jungle is ekasi where anything and everything happens,” said Nasty C. “It’s where people live recklessly. There are no rules because you can do whatever you want. The jungle is also Joburg. A lot more stuff happens there than what happened when I used to be in Durban. Those two meanings are intertwined.”

King is produced by South Africa’s own Tweezy and is a tongue-in-cheek look at misguided youth, who refer to themselves as “young kings.”

It 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.”
