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.
