Listen to Shane Eagle and Nasty C’s Collaboration ‘PARIS’

Nasty C and Shane Eagle's highly anticipated song is here.

Last week when Shane Eagle shared the tracklist for his upcoming mixtape, one track that caught many South African hip-hop fans' attention was "PARIS." The song features Nasty C. Shane and Nasty are two of the country's (and continent's) most popular and potent lyricists.


A song by the two of them was always going to be a notable event. "PARIS" is the latest song to be released from Shane's upcoming mixtape Dark Moon Flower. And, the song doesn't disappoint. Both emcees went into it knowing all ears will be on them, and they rapped their lungs out.

Shane kicks off the song, rapping about his life changing from the success he's seen in the last few years. He raps:

"I flew my mama to Paris/ She used to stay on the street/ I bought myself a new chain, it cost like 40 a piece/ I haven't been home in a while, so I spent a crib on my teeth"

Nasty C is equally cold in his verse, rapping about loving his fans, but asking for his time alone to deal with his weed. An excerpt:

"Me and these rappers ain't really friends/ I don't be taking their calls/ I make 'em talk to the middle man, he won't pass their message at all/ You know I got love for my real fans, but I'm cursing them off of my yard/ I can't be signing no autograph, I got kush in my garage"

"PARIS" is what rappity rap sounds like in the trap era—the song is just raps and and a beat, no fancy hook or melodies.

"PARIS" is the second song to be released from Dark Moon Flower, after the lead single "BLACK," which the young emcee released last week accompanied by visuals. The mixtape is out on October 16.
