David Ngcobo originates from Durban in the Kwazulu-Natal Province. He started rapping at the age of nine, having been influenced by his older brother who was a producer at the time.

He eventually mastered the process of music production and began adding his vocals on the beats he was making, later signing to Durban-based artist management company, Free World Music.
The stage name ‘Nasty C’ was given to him by the first producer he ever worked with. He looks up to fellow South African rappers AKA, Khuli Chana and Reason, and stated that he was motivated by their work ethic.
His dream of meeting one of his major influences became a reality when he met AKA, and opened for him during the nationwide album launch for AKA’s debut studio album Altar Ego. Nasty C highlights that performing alongside AKA at a Durban festival was one of the best experiences of his life.

Nasty C released his first mixtape One Kid a Thousand Coffins on 24 May 2013. His sophomore project titled C L.A.M.E (Extended Play Version) – EP was released on 4 April 2014. L.A.M.E. is an acronym for “Levitating Above My Enemies”.
Nasty C went on to release another mixtape, titled Price City on 10 February 2015, his late mother’s birthday, as well as the day before his 18th birthday.
Nasty C released his major single “Juice Back” which later spawned a remix featuring Davido and Cassper Nyovest. The song was produced by Cassper Nyovest’s in-house producer Gemini Major.

On 9 January 2016, he was featured on Anatii and Cassper Nyovest’s collaborative single “Jump”. The official music video for the remix to the single “Juice Back” was released on 17 January 2016.
He released the first single “Hell Naw” off his debut album “Bad Hair Extensions” early 2016. The single was warmly appreciated and peaked at No. 4 on the music chart in South Africa.

The rapper has been growing as an artist and the thing that impresses me the most about Nasty C is the fact that he can switch up his style for any type of record.

We’d love to see more of him as he breaks into diverse markets…
