“It’s really about being a God in whatever you feel like,”Nasty C
the SAMA award-winning rapper says of God Flow.
“When I made the song at that particular time, that’s how I felt. When I said ‘God Flow’ for the first time, it kind of made me feel I could really take this song far.”Nasty C
In his Song Stories, Nasty C also speaks about his success and the tales behind his recent album Strings and Bling.
After rising to fame with 2015’s energetic “Juice Back,” Nasty C landed Davido and Cassper Nyovest on the track’s remix. In 2016, he followed that up with the hit single “Hell Naw” from his debut album Bad Hair.
As a mainstay of the South African hip hop scene Nasty C has come far, becoming Apple Music‘s most streamed South African artist of the past four years, appearing on the Billboard Charts as a feature on Major Lazer’s “Particula” and having every song from his multi-platinum album Strings and Bling achieve gold status or more.
