Nasty C's album Zulu Man With Some Power was released in 2020 and was a successful drop with fans getting it to be the biggest album of August. Big Sean and Nasty C had both released music but had not featured on each other's albums.

Fans of Big Sean wrote that they were disappointed that he hadn't appeared on Nasty C's latest album after Big Sean had dropped his project, Detroit 2, in September.

The two then began chatting publicly on social media and had fans buzzing about a collaboration between the artists and what the potential track would sound like.

Got compared to Pro Kid

Nasty had AKA take to social media to compare him to the late Mzansi rap legend ProKid.

Supa Mega decided to take to Twitter in November and shared his opinion that the There They Go hitmaker is on the same level as the Sekele hitmaker.

AKA got to rub shoulders with Pro when he was still alive as Mega was already on the come-up during Pro's prime. The Fela in Versace hitmaker had also previously shared the same studio with Nasty C.

AKA knowing both artists gave his opinion weight and fans thought that him knowing both the artists on a musical and personal level was a great indication of Nasty's talent.
