Since emerging from Durban five years ago, Nasty C has scored hits and collaborated with international stars like French Montana and Major Lazer. Now, on his anticipated follow-up to 2016’s Bad Hair, the rapper aims for kingly status. He calls himself “031’s most wanted” on “Legendary”, a free-flowing R&B groove dedicated to his hometown; riles up the cipher alongside Harlem, NY rapper A$AP Ferg on “King”; and pairs with SA singer-songwriter Rowlene on the tortured breakup anthem “SMA”. Throughout, Nasty C appears destined for the next level of success.

"Strings and Bling is an album that signifies growth and a newly-formed ability to channel his emotions through song. Nasty C draws power from vulnerability and Strings and Bling’s strength lies in the fact that it’s personal and honest." ...
