Nasty C Drops New Single and Video For ‘Eazy’

The new Def Jam signee is right where he should be.

South African star rapper Nasty C has just released a new single and accompanying visuals for his latest track "Eazy."

Fresh off his recent signing with Island Def Jam records, the rapper's newest single release comes off of his highly anticipated third album, ZULU MAN WITH SOME POWER.

Nasty C certainly shows off his power with this release. The visuals enhance the song's message of him reaping the rewards of hard work and believing in the vision. It features alluring scenes and graphics to fully emerge the listeners into the tune—and fans certainly agreed.

This release comes hot off of the heels of his recent collaboration with T.I. on "They Don't." That track speaks to the recent uprising and protests against police brutality, and the international unrest over racial injustices.

We don't know when his next album is set to come out, but we're preparing ourselves for nothing short of greatness.

Check out the music video for "Eazy" and some Twitter fan reactions below.

Interview: Simi Is Taking Risks

Nigerian star Simi talks about the successes & risks of this year, her thoughts on the #EndSARS protests, and how her husband, Adekunle Gold, inspired Restless II.

Simi is restless. It has nothing to do with the year she has had, in fact, she reaffirmed her status as one of Nigeria's most successful musicians with a single music drop, "Duduke," which enjoyed widespread appeal as the nation went into lockdown earlier in the year.

The 32-year-old singer's restlessness is a reflection of the organised chaos that has defined her recording process this year as she combined the rigours of being an expectant mother with an examination of her place in the wider world. It, more accurately, reflects her re-negotiation of the parameters of her stardom.

"I've never really been a big fan of the spotlight," she whispers silently early in our Zoom conversation. "I know that it comes with the territory, but when I got my big break and more people started to recognise me, I realised that I had to edit myself, my life, and most of the things that I'd do or say because I wanted to be careful to keep a part of me for myself."
