Rap Song of the Week: “There They Go” sees Nasty C at his slickest and most imposing

Not too many rappers do braggadocio like Mr Ngcobo

Very few rappers on the continent manage to pull off braggadocio like Nasty C does. Over the course of his career, and especially on his superb sophomore album, ‘Strings & Blings’, the South African rapper has shown that he’s capable of emotional range in his music, however, his most viscerally thrilling cuts come when he’s pounding his chest and flipping two fingers at naysayers and haters.

“There They Go”, Nasty C’s debut as a Def Jam signee and the lead single for his upcoming album, ‘Zulu Man with Some Power’, sees the rapper at his slickest and in his most imposing cadence. In this showboating bag, he usually raps in thickets of grand and berating quotables, and his new single is no different. “I was right, every night I was spittin’ sixteens by the light/you was praying for a job, I was praying for the mob”, he animatedly quips, casually decimating Cxdy’s glockenspiel riffs and thumping 808 bass.
