Nasty C releases DJ Whoo Kid-hosted mixtape, ‘ZULU’

The South African rapper is getting the streets warmed up before his third studio album drops later this summer

For the better part of this year, Nasty C has been drumming hype for his third studio album, ‘Zulu Man with Some Power’, and if preceding moves are any indicator, it’s shaping up to be a blockbuster release for African rap music. Earlier this year, it was announced that the South African rapper had entered a deal with Def Jam Recordings, and he was also unveiled as part of the novel set of signings for Def Jam Africa.

Nasty C has already started coining on those international affiliations, collaborating with T.I on the socially conscious single, “They Don’t”,which he recently performed on Late Night with Seth Meyers. In continuing those crossover efforts, the rapper is has now dropped ‘ZULU’, a new mixtape that will be hosted by popular hip-hop DJ, DJ Whoo Kid. This move is a throwback to the period when rappers used to drop mixtapes before full length albums, a tactic that’s used to temporarily feed the streets and drive anticipation.

DJ Whoo Kid gained popularity with his affiliations to 50 Cent, hosting the barrage of mixtapes that came before the American rapper’s uber-successful classic debut album, ‘Get Rich or Die Tryin’’. Since then, he’s remained a fixture in the culture of DJ-hosted mixtapes, hosting tapes from G-Unit and its affiliated members, Mobb Deep, Snoop Dogg, Nipsey Hussle, Skepta and much more. ‘Zulu’ is DJ Whoo Kid’s first association with an African rapper, a collaboration that will no doubt open more ears to Nasty C, in his quest for global prominence.
