Listen to ‘God Flow’ by Nasty C and crownedYung

Nasty C shares "God Flow."

Nasty C has been teasing a song called "God Flow" in the last few weeks. The emcee finally shared the song this morning. "God Flow" comes with a verse from up—and-coming Durban rapper crownedYung.


On "God Flow," Nasty C and his guest trade bars over a bass-heavy instrumental decorated with glittery pads.

Nasty C shows off with syllable rhymes and mid-rhymes, reminding you he's one of the best out. On the first verse, he raps:

"Bitches and money, huh, keep 'em separate/ Niggas act funny, huh, when they desperate/ Me under pressure? Nah, I'm under dresses/ First time I seen a million flat it felt electric/ I just knew, I'm the one that made the music but I'm made for it too"

crownedYung's verse doesn't disappoint either.

"God Flow" is one of those songs in which rappers focus on rapping and worry less about other things, and it works.

Nasty C drops the song in the middle of the third iteration of his popular Ivyson Tour. It's not clear if the song will be part of the rapper's upcoming album Zulu Man With Some Power.

Juls Drops New Music Video for 'Soweto Blues' Featuring Busiswa and Jaz Karis

The Ghanaian-British producer heads to South Africa for the music video for the amapiano-inspired track.

Heavyweight Ghanaian-British producer Juls shares his first offering of 2020, and it does not disappoint.

The producer enlists South African music star Busiswa and London's Jaz Karis for the jazz-inflected "Soweto Blues," which also boasts elements of South Africa's dominant electronic sound, Amapiano. The slow-burner features airy vocals from Karis who features prominently on the 3-minute track, while Busiswa delivers a standout bridge in her signature high-energy tone.

"The song dubbed "Soweto Blues" is a song depicting the love, sadness and fun times that Soweto tends to offer its people," read the song's YouTube description. The video premiered earlier today on The Fader. "The energy is amazing, the people are lovely and I've found a second home — especially the vibrancy of Soweto," the producer told The Fader about his trip to Soweto for the making of the video "Jaz Karis is singing a love song, which is symbolic of my new love of Soweto and I'm honoured to have worked with Busiswa whom I have been a fan of for a long time."

Fittingly, the music video sees Juls traveling through the township, taking in its sights and energy. The video, directed by Nigel Stöckl, features striking shots of the popular area and its skilled pantsula dancers.
