Nasty C’s lit international record deal with boujee US entertainment company Def Jam Records has peeps expecting even greater things from the young rapper.
There is no denying Nasty C has earned his hip-hop crown and we know he is not done impressing.
Briefly.co.za heard the big news back in March and literally the whole of Mzansi rejoiced in the news of Nasty C’s big record deal.
Speaking to TshisaLIVE recently, Nasty C expressed his excitement for this new venture and made it clear that it is not going to be easy – expectations are high.
“Man it's exciting, it's very exciting because I really put in the work. I just keep my head down and work, I overwork myself even and it pays off ... that's the one thing I believe in.”
Even though he has been signed by a US label, Nasty C will never forget his roots. SA is his home and no money or fame will ever change that!
“I'll always have a place to live here because I don't want to live anywhere else besides SA, but I do have to move in the States so I'm there a bit more and people get to see my face a bit more and to also interact with me.”

Nasty C has always been unapologetically authentic and that’s not going to change just because of some boujee record deal. The young rapper trusts in who he is and that his authenticity is the reason he’s been blessed like he has.
“I've never been one to change because of what people think about me or because they don't like me. So, I will keep doing music and it's been working so far.”
Nasty C reminded all young Mzansi artists to never stop believing and to never let their circumstances define them. You will only go as far as you believe you can.
“Just work hard and keep telling yourself you deserve everything in the world, or whatever you want to get in life. Never feel like you're not worth it because you come from a 'not so good' background.
“That's how people are, they feel like they don't deserve the world and I try to do the opposite and be extra at doing. I guess that's how I keep doing these outrageous things.”
