Durban-born rapper Nasty C proved that he is indeed a Zulu Man with some Power.
The 25-year-old rapper reached a feat only few can dream of – he has reached 1 million YouTube subscribers.
The rapper has 164 videos on his YouTube channel.
His career trajectory is surreal just like his journey to success .
In a sit-down with ZAlebs two years ago, the rapper described his third studio album as a work of heart.

"They can expect a lot of good music, nothing too intense just some really dope music. I tried to really test my creative muscles and I hope they will appreciate and love it.
The album featured collabos with T.I., Ari Lennox, Rowlene, Tellaman and a few others.

"It just happened naturally I guess because with regards to me and Tellaman whenever I feel like I have a song I call him and we get to the studio and make it. With the international guys, it was a matter of them hearing about me, or the people that know me that side when they are in the studios they make the connections and all I do is just to find a song that is perfect send it and make it out."
"It's different because as a person I have grown and as an artist so solidly it's the growth I think also my style of writing changes every time so that it hits different and does not feel like I'm saying the same stuff over and over."

 Nasty C decided to have more vernacular verses on his album because people used to slam him for rapping only in English and he wanted to showcase how versatile he is.

 "As a township boy from Illovu, I felt it was befitting for me to rap in vernac especially because this track is about my struggles and how my hood has inspired me to achieve the greatest," he says.

"It's definitely a treat I don't like describing it. I want fans to listen  to it and like it for what it is." Nasty C says he started working on the album 2-3 years ago and didn't have any challenges besides the mixing and mastering of the album.
 "There is no song that I didn't put a 100% on it," he adds. He says his favourite tracks on the album are La Vida Loca, Ababulali and Steve Biko because of the meaning they have. 

 The rapper is one of the few South African musicians signed tto American record label Def Jam, and this is set to catapult his career to even greater heights. Responding on what he hopes to achieve, he says: "I just hope they help me bring the ideas that I have to life."
