After almost a year of waiting for one of the most talented rappers in South Africa to drop, Nasty C finally released his debut album titled Bad Hair. Just minutes after its release Twitter went wild as they hailed and proclaimed Nasty’s work as genius.
On the day of its release I tried to avoid listening to the album because I knew that my views would be influenced by the hype on social media with numerous websites and blogs already having full reviews on their pages. I was also using that time to try and figure out why Nasty C, an artist who has the potential to go Gold in a day, would release his debut album for free?
I’ve been bumping the album throughout the weekend and I have to say that when it comes to its music value and quality of production; Bad Hair is one of the dope albums out right now. It’s easy to hear that Nasty has been working on his craft as a producer and recording artist. I can however say that from what I hear with regards to Nasty's subject matter, I think Bad Hair is a dope project which was obviously originally meant to be dropped either last year or earlier on in the year. The songs are cool, but I wanted to hear what 2016 Nasty has to say about life now after putting the rap game on its toes, yet most of the tracks were reminiscent of Nasty’s Price City Mixtape.

I can however say that from what I hear with regards to Nasty’s subject matter, I think Bad Hair is a dope project which was obviously originally meant to be dropped either last year or earlier on in the year. The songs are cool, but I wanted to hear what 2016 Nasty has to say about life now after putting the rap game on its toes, yet most of the tracks were reminiscent of Nasty’s Price City Mixtape. It’s a great “Part 2” to Price City and Nasty can now say that he has two solid bodies of work. This now means that he has to drop something else which will undoubtedly take over the streets and propel him to the international platform we think he can obtain.
The album has two hot joints which have the potential of reaching Juiceback status – I Lie featuring Tshego and A Star Is Born featuring Riky Rick who goes in hard with a verse that could be better than Nasty’s 2 verses. All the other tracks are amazing album fillers which will be loved by Nasty fans who will sing along with him if he performs them on stage but they will never stay long on the number 1 spot. With 3.5 features on the album it’s obvious that Eric Rush lives in the same neighbourhood as Nasty C. Not to say that he isn’t amazing, I just feel like he needs to use his gully voice a lot more and go in harder on every verse. The same goes to Tellaman and Tshego who need to sound as if they’ve just shed a tear after every line they sing. They’re great singers but they should think of how hard John Legend sings whenever he is featured on a Kanye West joint.
All in all I think that Nasty C has proven his ability to make quality tracks but now I think it’s time for him to release the real hits. Bad Hair was made up of well-produced tracks which will definitely get airplay for a while, but I think that the hits are still to come.
