Zulu Man With Some Power

Nasty C’s 3rd studio album is a mission statement addressing and breaking stereotypes. Cementing his mark on the international scene, this project is an answer to public outcry. 

Taking reprimands and broad criticism in his stride, he creates a masterpiece with his cultural roots intact. ”Eazy” highlights how he copes and deals with everything that transpires around him. ”Zulu Man” is a steamroller conveying a meaningful message of his early rapping days and habits that ultimately led him to where he is right now. Contrary to popular belief that he is an incompetent vernac rapper, in this record not only does he put those claims to bed but furthermore displays his versatility and lyrical prowess. 

The standout feature with T.I., one of the pioneers of the sub-genre of trap hip-hop music, Nasty C demonstrates that it is possible for a black child from Africa to rub shoulders with the elite. ”They don’t” addresses racial injustices and police brutality upon civilians. The beautifully crafted melodies coupled with empowering lyrics, makes this project one not to miss. It instills pride in one’s culture, the widely overlooked black race in particular from Africa is highly represented. 

I personally see this project as a “crux” in comparison to his previous work, primarily because he evidently displays his versatile rapping skills particularly in his native Zulu language and for the mere fact he tackles societal issues such trigger-happy police nature leading up to unaccounted murders of people of colour.  He used his powerful and influential voice across South African shores to craft a potent project.


I’d unapologetically give this album a rating of  8/10.
