Nasty C & Emtee Square Off on Insta Live

Nasty C wins the Instagram Live battle against Emtee’s catalogue.



It was a battle for the ages, long over due to say the least. Nasty C and Emtee put up their individual music catalogues in a battle to see who had the better hits. While the event was advertised as a battle, there was nothing confrontational about it. There was mutual respect for the mark that both artists have had on SA hip hop scene, in just a couple of years in the game.

The Insta live battle was put together by Tweezy and Gemini Major, both of whom have had their own duel in the process. According to our count, this was the fourth official Insta Live beat battle, with Makwa vs. Lunatik and Moozlie vs. Rouge also having their time to shine. There were five judges who tallied the points during the battle, the duo assisted by Ms Cosmo, DJ Capital and the person who run the Instagram account for MTV Base.

The viewers of the battle peaked at 14.8K, before there was an intermittent break. While fans had their own views on who won the different rounds, Gemini was quick to remind us who the judges were. Aside from going down memory lane to rediscover some of the joints that both artists had dropped, we were given a taste of what’s going to be their next releases. Nasty C recently released There They Go from his upcoming album Zulu Man With Some Power. His next slated release is  titled That’s Hard while Emtee dropped a snippet of his coming release called Johustleburg.

Do you agree with the judges’ scoring in this battle? Either way, South African hip hop won on the night. Stay tuned to see which artists will follow this gigantic battle. Should be interesting.
