Watch Nasty C Break Down the Meaning of his Single ‘God Flow’

Nasty C explains his single 'God Flow' in the latest episode of Apple Music's 'Song Stories' series.

Nasty C recently sat down with Apple Music for the final episode of the streaming platform's Song Stories series. The South African rapper broke down the meaning of and the inspiration behind his 2019 single "God Flow" which featured fellow Durban rapper crownedYung.


"'God Flow' is really just about you being a god in whatever you feel like being a god in at the time," says Nasty C in the clip.

He adds that the song came as a result of him going through different beats and this particular one caught his attention. He then started freestyling different words and phrases.

"When I said, 'God flow,' the first time, it made me feel like I could really take the song somewhere far," says the rapper, "as opposed to talking about the simple stuff that every rappers talks about, I could really say some real shit on it. And at the same time, have it sound so jiggy that people just wanna sing along to it and rap along to it. That's a value a lot of people don't really care about, so it's stuff like that. Real lines like that where people say it's really cool to say or use a caption or rap along to."

Nasty C is currently preparing to drop his third studio album, Zulu Man With Some Power, which is poised to be his biggest, coming with high profile features and producers. The last time we spoke to the rapper, he told us the album would be executive produced by No I.D and will feature T.I..

Interview: GuiltyBeatz Proves He's Truly 'Different'

The Ghanaian producer talks to us about his debut EP, Different, the massive success of "Akwaaba," producing for Beyoncé and more.

GuiltyBeatz isn't a new name in the Ghanaian music scene. A casual music fan's first introduction to him would've likely been years ago on "Sample You," one of Mr Eazi's early breakout hits. However, he had scored his first major hit two years before that, in the Nigerian music space on Jesse Jagz' and Wizkid's 2013 hit "Bad Girl." In the years to come, the producer has gone on to craft productions for some of Ghana's most talented artists.

In the years to come, the producer has gone on to craft productions for some of Ghana's most talented artists, having worked with the likes of Efya, Pappy Kojo, Sarkodie, R2Bees, Stonebwoy, Bisa Kdei, Wande Coal, Moelogo and many more over the last decade. The biggest break of the talented producer's career, however, came with the arrival of his own single "Akwaaba".

In 2018, GuiltyBeatz shared "Akwaaba" under Mr Eazi's Banku Music imprint, shortly afterwards the song and its accompanying dance went viral. The track and dance graced party floors, music & dance videos, and even church auditoriums all around the world, instantly making him one of Africa's most influential producers. Awards, nominations, and festival bookings followed the huge success of "Akwaaba." Then, exactly a year later, the biggest highlight of his career so far would arrive: three production credits on Beyoncé's album The Lion King: The Gift.
