Mzansi hip-hop heads have shared mixed reactions to AKA's post. Check out some of their comments below:
"Pro Kid did not reach Nasty C's levels, please."
"No he is not. ProKid spoke to the kid in the dust to hustle out of their situation, Nasty C speaks to the kid in the suburbs to flex some more. Plus when Pro came out we never heard a vernac rapper flip words like that before, with Nasty we've had so many US rappers like that before."
"Nasty C is the best, noma uPro angavuka (even if Pro wakes up) he won't catch up."
"Nasty C got bigger hits, a bigger brand but Pro just got that thing that makes Nasty C look small."
"No disrespect to Pro but Nasty is way bigger than that."
"Pro had that Kasi flava and the kid doesn’t, he’s from America."
