Nasty C believes gospel music makes the most money in South Africa.
Nasty C is currently out in LA networking, promoting his music and meeting new people. Possibly working on some new music as well.
During his recent press stop the South African rapper spoke with DGB about music in his country and the different sounds and styles coming out of South Africa.
“There’s Amapiano, there’s kwaito … We have a small but very dope RnB scene, hip hop scene, gospel goes crazy in SA,” he said. “I feel like gospel makes the most money in South Africa also, which is crazy.”
He added “We have legendary gospel artists, some of them have passed on… we have people like Rebecca Malope […] there’s a lot of them. I’m not so into gospel like that so I don’t know most of their names, but I know them from my parents playing their music growing up a lot.”
“I took inspiration from all of them and I guess from making music all the time I kind of found a pocket that I felt most comfortable in like making music,” he said.
Nasty released his Def Jam debut Zulu Man With Some Power Last Year. Serving as his third album, the cross-Over LP featured guest appearances from T.I., Ari Lennox, Lil Keed, Lil Gotit, Tellaman and more.
