Nasty C also known as, Nsikayesizwe David Junior Ngcobo, is a popular South African rapper, songwriter, and producer. He was born on February 11, 1997 (25 years old) in Diepkloof. Unfortunately when he was 11 months old, his mother passed away in a fatal car crash which resulted in him moving to Durban, Kwa-Zulu Natal to be raised by his father, David Maviyo Ngcobo. He has an older brother, Siyabonga Ngcobo, who helped influence him to rap and helped him learn the basics of rapping at the age of nine.
In March 2020, Billboard released that Nasty C signed a joint venture deal with Def Jam Records. Although Nasty C was a very successful rapper, he was also shown in Netflix series Blood & Water, playing the role of Zhero.
On June 5, 2020 Nasty C partnered with rapper T.I. to protest the song “They Don’t”. This song attacks the stereotype of black man growing up with unequal opportunities, especially the injustices of police officers. Nasty C says, “They don’t want to see a young black man succeed,
They don’t want to see me take my brothers out of the streets”. In this verse he tries to emphasize his own feelings about growing up feeling like people were against him just because of his race. In this song T.I. mentioned the murder of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Emmett Till, etc. T.I. says, “How are you supposed to serve and protect with your knee on my neck?” directing this verse to law enforcement. I applaud T.I. for taking it there and I think he has every right to talk about the social injustices of a black man because he not only experienced it first hand, but he also has four sons. This song is directed at everybody who targets and belittle our black kings because of their skin color. Lastly, this song also gets closure for all the mothers who lost their children to police brutality. May your children rest in peace!
