Nasty C Tells Apple Music About Working with T.I…
“He was here in South Africa in Cape Town shooting a movie. He hit my DM, that was crazy for me. He’s the reason I rap, he’s the guy that really made me pay attention to music. He was like ‘Yo, I’m riding around Cape Town bumping your sh*t, your sh*t is hot, and if you wanna work, I’m down.’ I didn’t waste no time.”
Nasty C Tells Apple Music About Taking Extra Time To Finish The Album…
“This whole COVID thing really gave me time to sit with it. That’s the only thing I had to wake up to, every single day. I zoned into it a little bit more and I figured out what was missing, and I wrapped it up within quarantine.”
Nasty C Tells Apple Music About The Album’s Title…
“It was No I.D. that really inspired the title. We spoke a lot about crossing over with your culture on your back. It gave the idea because now that I’m trying to break into the US and the UK, I figured I have to have my culture on my back. People have to know who I am out the gate.”
