Nasty C delivered perhaps the best album of his rap career at a time when SA Hip-hop needed well-known artists to step up and advance the genre. Nonetheless, Nasty C explains why he thinks he hasn’t utilized his full potential. Following the long-awaited release of his album “I Love It Here,” the award-winning rapper delighted the SA hip-hop community. Nasty C claimed that despite the hype surrounding his record, he hasn’t yet realized his full potential in comparison to where he wants to be.
After his album dropped, the 26-year-old rapper was asked if this project represented the apex of his career up to that point during an interview with Old Man Ebro on Apple Music.
Old Man Ebro asked,
“Do you feel like this is the best you’ve ever been?”
Nasty C replied that he thought he was at his top but admitted that he had not yet reached his full potential. The “Hell Naw” singer demonstrated humility by acknowledging he still has a long way to go. He seeks to match or perhaps exceed the impressive artistry displayed by the many artists he admires and is inspired by. Nasty C boldly claimed that “I Love It Here,” even though he had previously produced several noteworthy works, including fan favourites like “Strings And Blings” and “Zulu Man With Some Powers,” was his best work to date after its release.
Nasty C said,
“Best I’ve ever been for sure, but I haven’t reached my full potential yet, it’s not even close,” “I have a long way to go, a lot of artists that I look up to are incredible with what they are doing and I want to be that good or better. I dont think I’m there yet,”
