Shane Eagle and Nasty C have finally satiated long standing fantasies of an essential collaboration.
Considered by many as two of the leading acts as far as the new school wave of South African Hip Hop is concerned, the two on Friday premiered a collaborative joint.
Entitled Paris, the toon finds Eagle and Nasty C delivering their trademark multiple entendres and confident bars over a sick beat. “Historic moment”, Shane Eagle wrote on his Instagram as he availed the track to his fans.
And historic moment it is. The rappers, who’s ascensions to prominence were almost synchronised with timing as unprecedented success, have built big musical portfolios around the same time. They’ve both made headlines for selling albums like cupcakes, while showcasing artistic virtuosity in their lauded raps.
Paris marks also coming of their new chapters.
Shane Eagle’s looming second studio album will transition his flow from Yellow to a new season soon enough. Now available for pre-order on all major digital streaming platforms, the rapper’s highly anticipated second studio album, Dark Moon Flower, has already spawned a single, the cold groove Black.
Dark Moon Flower will follow the commercial success of his two previous records, his critically acclaimed Yellow, and the more recent Never Grow Up EP, which achieved GOLD status in album sales.
Nasty C proceeds full force with his new visually exciting musical era. It features a lot of white in the colour pallet, which the rapper has embodied with plenty of white garb and the bad-ass white dreadlocks. Nasty kicked off his new season with God Flow, which premiered last week.
The track is taken off Zulu Man With Some Power, his third studio album.
