Nasty C’s Freestyle On Tim Westwood’s Crib Session Is One For The Books

Watch Nasty C obliterate two beats on Tim Westwood's Crib Session.

South African rapper Nasty C is one of the best doing it right about now. In his short career, the 22-year-old has managed to spit some of the most memorable lines and verses in South African hip-hop.


Legendary UK radio host, Tim Westwood recently released a freestyle the MC rendered for his Crib Session series. And, in just under three minutes, Nasty C raps over two instrumentals, and because he's a beast, he uses different flows for each, and spits lines that should leave your fave in shame. He displays different MC traits—wordplay, storytelling, breath control, and his flow is still unmatched.

Nasty C's sophomore album, Strings and Bling, is out July 6th, and is one of the most anticipated South African hip-hop releases of the year.

"THE 5 YEAR PLAN" adds to a growing series of collaborations between A-Reece and Wordz. Both rappers come from 1000 Degreez, a supergroup from Pretoria that was active in the mid-2010s and played the role of launching the careers of both rappers and their acolytes.
