Watch Nasty C Perform ‘Palm Trees’ and ‘How Many Times’ on Vevo’s ‘Ctrl.At.Home’

Nasty C performs two songs 'Palm Trees' and 'How Many Times' from 'Zulu Man With Some Power' on Vevo's 'Ctrl.At.Home' series.

Nasty C is the latest artist to render a performance for Vevo's live performance series Ctrl.At.Home. Artists who have appeared on the series include Flo Milli, SiR, YFN Lucci and Royce Da 5'9" among many others.

For his session, Nasty C performs two songs from Zulu Man With Some Power from the comfort of his home. He performs the club banger "Palm Trees" outside his backdoor and the mellow "How Many Times" to a backdrop of the ocean and mountains.


"Palm Trees" was the last single Nasty C ahead of Zulu Man With Some Power, his recently dropped third studio album. "How Many Times" is a song about his journey to the top of the food chain. He reflects on persevering ("When shit got hard, I got harder/ When the money got small, I stood taller").

The song appears in the section of Zulu Man With Some Power which Nasty C described last year as "a rollercoaster"—a section that includes songs such as "Zone" and "All In", songs in which Nasty is in touch with his feelings.

In the heart of a traditionally Black and Indigenous use area in Southwest Mexico, decades of environmental destruction now threatens the existence of these communities.

On an early morning in September 2017, in a little fishing village in the Pacific coast of Oaxaca, called Zapotalito, thousands of dead fish floated on the surface of the Chacahua-Pastoría lagoons. A 7.1-magnitude earthquake, which rattled Mexico City on September 19, was felt as far down as Zapotalito, and the very next morning, its Black, Indigenous and poor Mestizo residents, who depend on the area's handful of lagoons for food and commerce, woke up to an awful smell and that terrible scene of floating fish.
