Nasty C Releases International Mixtape With DJ Whoo Kid “Zulu”

Ahead of his much-teased third studio album “Zulu Man With Some Power”, Nasty C has released a new joint project with mixtape royalty, DJ Whoo Kid titled “Zulu”.

The mixtape contains just 11 tracks including the T.I-assisted ‘They Don’t’ where they stand up against injustice and oppression rearing its head across the world. The project also features an apperance of American hip-hop artist Mishlawi and Crowned Yung.

“ZULU is a dope project that I’m excited to drop. Working on this mixtape with DJ Whoo Kid has been great,” Nasty C says to Complex. “It’s my first international mixtape collab. We put this together during lockdown, sending tracks back and forth and really got to know each other well during the process. I think our fans are gonna love it.”

Nasty C Is Enjoying His Life Of Excess On ‘Eazy’

Still on the road to his much-teased third studio album “Zulu Man With Some Power“, Nasty C has released his third single of the coming LP, titled ‘Eazy‘. This new single comes right after he and American rapper T.I lent their voices to the growing uprising against violence and injustice across the world with ‘They Don’t’.

Nasty C is blessed and he knows it. Over this new mid-tempo trap tune with its signature rolling hi-hats and thumping bass coated with tingling bells, Nasty C reminds us of the allures of his life as a superstar. With his amiable vocals and polished flows, he paints a vivid picture of what it means to be Nasty C. What it means to be one of Africa’s proudest sons, headlining the penetration of African hip-hop to the global music space.

Celebrity life can be so demanding. Many naively dash into the spotlight only to wince at its blinding brightness, realising that the responsibility and security that comes with their long-sought fame isn’t what they really prepared for. But not Nasty C.

On ‘Eazy‘, the Def Jam Africa frontman embraces it like a long lost lover. When he raps “it’s a lot of bad things here, I’m right where I should be / every blessing that I prayed for fell right down onto me,” you recall that he’s living the life most people only ever dream of. He’s living a life of luxury and excess, and he’s enjoying every bit of it.

A rare. Debut – Odunsi’s First Album

Pulling off a debut project that will make history books is hard. Making music that is inter-generational is even harder, but Odunsi has done it. The singer’s debut album premiered on the PGM Live radio show last Wednesday, an amazing private listening party on Thursday and the official public release on all platforms finally came through on Friday.

rare. is Odunsi’s first debut and it’s taken this vanguard two years to come through with this project. While some fans were mad that it’s taken their fave so long to put out a compilation, one listen to this superstar quality debut and you’ll understand why. The project samples the Funk/Disco sounds of the 70s/80s and some spins on 90s Hip-Hop and this has to be the best spin on the sounds produced this year and with such a superb blend of sound, you can’t really hate Odunsi’s music. With rare. we see Odunsi take sole charge of his brand aesthetic, adding to the redefinition of what it is to be an African artist in this age.
