In our last editorial post, we predicted a new Nasty C album is on the way, on the same day the Durban emcee announced he was releasing a new song the next day, March 25th, 2022. The rapper posted a short snippet of the song titled ‘Can’t Imagine’ and its cover art on his official Instagram account @nasty_csa.
South African hip hop legend Slikour, from the rap group Skwatta Kamp, commented ”let’s rap” on the post buttressing the feeling of many hip hop fans about a lack of “hard rap songs” from Nasty C in recent time, recent time here referring to the era after his 2018 album, ‘Strings & Bling.’
‘Can’t Imagine’ features hard-hitting 808’s, hi-hats, and haunting, sharp horns, with a lyrical verse sprinkled with a level of braggadocio one would expect from Jay Z.
This may be a prelude to more rap songs from the emcee or a farewell to hardcore rap in favor of more melodic cuts, but one thing is sure that Nasty C can still really rap, when he wants to.
Enjoy ‘Can’t Imagine and don’t forget to share with your friends on all social media platforms.
