"When I listen to Afrobeats, I hear a lot of live instrumentation, original melodies, actual good singing - that's music. The music videos too, these n*ggas are creative. Their music lasts forever.
"Amapiano is kinda the same. These n*ggas' that make the Amapiano melodies are on the keyboard for real, they're like guys from church, they're making music for real."
Nasty C went on to compare the genres to hip hop:
"We sample a lot, that means we don't have a lot of original melodies. We're taking melodies from jazz, slow jam, Jamaican music. I'm not hating on it but the truth is the truth, Afrobeats and Amapiano are better than hip hop music-wise.
"We're out here playing this weird game where everyone is fake rich, fake bawling, fake gangsta, all these songs that end up trending are a disgrace."
Fans weigh in on Nasty C's claims
"He is speaking the truth, the best amapiano songs are actually timeless songs."
"You're right bro, Hip-Hop music these days is quantity over quality."
"I think Nasty is going to try something new with Hip Hop. New sound and approach."
"I can tell this is coming from someone that’s really in love with hip hop."

"Shout out Nasty, will forever respect ya for what you just said."
"You the realest Nasty!"

Nasty C carried the same sentiments about hip hop as Focalistic, more so about the fake personas.
"It wasn’t like a decision, it was a feeling. I never wanted to listen to anyone's hip hop at the time because I felt like it was all fake. It's all pool parties, baddies, and the girls aren’t even that super fly. Like just relax, do real life."
