Listen To A New Song From Nasty C’s Upcoming Album

Something different from the Durban-born rapper.

Nasty C's sophomore album, Strings and Bling is coming out in just two weeks, on July 6. A new song from the album is now yours when you pre-order or pre-save the project.

Titled "Legendary," the song sees the MC deploy the melodic flow that's now rife in rap. And, as usual, lyrically, Nasty C doesn't disappoint. He raps about his rise into stardom, asking himself how his life changed so fast. "Legendary, I'm just being legendary me/ When I'm feeling humble, smoke some ordinary weed," he sings on the hook.


The song is producer by LA-based producer Z. Will, and the music is warmer and richer than most of the beats the Durban-born rapper has been rapping over since he appeared a few years ago. "Legendary" is minimalist in nature; it doesn't have a lot going on. Nasty C's vocals are drenched in light reverb, and the instrumental has plenty of space to allow for the vocals to breathe.

"Legendary" is the third song we've heard from Strings and Bling, after Nasty C released "King" (featuring A$AP Ferg) and "Jungle" earlier this month.

Strings and Bling is a follow-up to the rapper's debut album Bad Hair, released in 2016.

Listen to "Legendary" below, and pre-order/ pre-save Strings and Bling on your online store and streaming site of choice.
