Controversial South African label executive and public figure Nota Baloyi, who is known for his hot takes on the South African music industry is back at it again. Nota’s latest antics are directed at his favorite targets; English rapping Nasty C and Shane Eagle. A-Reece and Stogie T and Cassper Nyovest escaped Nota’s 140 characters of critique this time.
Baloyi who was Kwesta’s manager for more than half of the emcee’s career took to the blue app to disagree with Shane Eagle’s ”independent artist” claims, after the release of Shane’s sophomore album, ‘Green.’
The East Rand rapper tweeted, ” do it on your own so nobody can ever say they put you on,” in celebration of dropping his second independent album earlier this month.
Nota then replied with ”kids never take advice from someone who is still faking it hoping to make it.” The Shade did not come as a surprise to fans as everybody already knew Shane has never been in Nota’s good books, for sounding ”too American.”
Another Nota blacklisted rapper who sounds ”too American” is Nasty C. The Durban emcee also caught some heat on Jack Dorsey’s app. Junior Ncgobo released a new single titled ‘Can’t Imagine‘ last Friday, which saw him returning to his lyrical and hardcore rapping ways.
A fan tweeted, ”y’all bullied Nasty C into rapping again,’ to which Nota from his handle @lavidaNOTA replied, “Nah, Blxckie does it best, Nasty C must just continue podcasting because his rap career is declining…”
Do you think Nota is right, do you think Nasty C does not represent true South African hip hop?
