Nadia Nakai Drops Quotable After Another In Her New Single ‘Imma Boss’

Listen to Nadia Nakai's new single 'Imma Boss.'

Nadia Nakai is currently one of the most confident rappers in South Africa. The Zimbabwe-born rapper is relentless on the mic, rapping with a conviction that is sure to intimidate her competitions in every song. Nadia is unapologetic about her success; after all, just a few years ago, she was an underdog undergoing scrutiny, and the verdict didn't always favor her.


After a few singles and guest appearances, Nadia is one of the country's top rappers—last year, for the first time in her career, she made the infamous SA Hottest MCs list by MTV Base.

In her latest single "Imma Boss," she rubs all that success in your face with her customary conviction. She spits quotable after another, equipping you with new captions for your Instagram posts. For instance, she raps in one of the verses:

"I don't need your advice/ I don't need your advance/ I did this shit without an album still made it to France/ Still made it to Spain taught these bitches to dance/ You bitches open your legs, I went and opened for Chance"

How about?

'The stadiums are sold out/ The merchandise is sold out/ I did it all in two weeks/ I did it with no roll out"

Or

"You bitches go to the mall and shop for new heels/ I tell my manager, no, go shop a new deal/ We did a million views, tell me how you feel"

"Imma Boss" is the third single from Nadia's highly anticipated and aptly titled debut album, Nadia Naked, dropping on the 28th of June. "Naaa Mean" and "Yass Bitch" were both released last year, and will also make the album. Nadia Naked will feature the likes of Khuli Chana, Ycee, Cassper Nyovest, Lady Zamar, and a few others.

Nadia last released a project in 2016, when she dropped her impressive EP Bragga. Nadia Naked should be full of just as much heaters.
