Nasty C vs A-Reece: The Rivalry Everyone is Talking About

Parallel album premiere dates spark new theories of a beef.

Published

on

There may be no official beef between Nasty C and A-Reece, but the new age South African rappers sure know how to keep speculation ablaze.

Shortly after A-Reece sparked a frenzy by sharing a Matrix movie-themed visual of the rollout for his looming project, Def Jam confirmed that Nasty’s upcoming album would be landing sometime in August.

Months after the Sotho Man With Some Power controversy, which Reece’s legal team since dismissed as foul play by a third party, SA Hip Hop’s two of the most talked-about rappers are back in the headlines for what fans perceive, once more, to be an ongoing feud.

The announcement comes months after’s Zulu Man With Some Power suffered some delays. The album was initially slated for release in May 2020, but got pushed back twice to an unconfirmed date have been waiting for. And to keep them satiated, the God’s Plan rapper instead dropped the Zulu mixtape in June.

It’s hard to completely overlook the theories of a rivalry between the 23-year-olds. Further to the timing of Nasty C’s announcement, one could note the themes on which the visual themes of their upcoming albums, and how they stand in contrast to each other.

It could be a coincidence, but it would be the newest in a growing pile of coincidences that suggest SA Hip Hop is seeing the rise to a Jay Z vs. Nas moment.

The artwork for Zulu Man With Some Power finds Nasty C wearing umqhele, a traditional Zulu headband for men. This aligns with the pursuit of the self as the Durban native is embracing his roots both visually and sonically. The album artwork centres Nasty C, who is surrounded by natural landscapes.

By contrast, Reece has been playing on the futuristic themes of the Matrix film. The iconic trilogy is based on a dystopian future, in which humanity is unknowingly trapped inside a simulation, called the ‘Matrix’, which has been established by to distract humans for a dark agenda. This will also help you understand the short film he dropped on Twitter.

What matters here is how Nasty is taking it back to basics as the Zulu Man, while Reece is taking us to the future as he seeks answers about freedom and autonomy within a reality controlled by an elite with wicked intentions.

K.O

The year is drawing to a close, and the land’s top musos are unleashing their offers for the summer. K.O on Tuesday lavished her fans with visuals for her freshest single, ‘Lucky Star’.

Mr Cashtime debuted the music video at midnight and threw a watch party for an interactive experience around it. Known for maintaining a consistently conceptual style of storytelling in his videos, the Ted Magerman and Dale Fortune directed video stays on brand.

The video sees K.O being shown around the city by his lovely companion from a lovely view overlooking the city to jet skis, they end the night with a brass band performing the hit single.

Fans will also enjoy a welcomed surprise appearance by former Teargas member, Maezeedoesit.

“Coming out of the current worldwide pandemic, we all need to do the best we can to reach for the stars by living our lives to the fullest since it is now more clear than ever that tomorrow is not promised. Pushing the envelope in every aspect of one’s life/hustle. The opening line of the hook “siyaphezulu” which simply translates as “we are going up” is an umbrella tag line that literally speaks to exactly that. This is the perfect theme song for self-starters out there whose inner voice serve as their biggest motivation and number cheerleader hence the play on sports and combat in the lyrics,”  said the rapper in a press statement.

AKA is back with a brand new banger. On Thursday midnight, the rapper premiered Casino, the latest single from his forthcoming BHOVAMANIA album.

The track features guest verses by Sho Madjozi and Flame, whose contributions help Supamega to mark a splashy return to the charts with what promises to be a blockbuster hit.

The song’s announcement on Thursday trounced the frenzy that shook the socials, as the promotional campaign featured DJ Fresh and 947 teasing the track with fun threats of leaking it. The chatter led the release to shoot to the top of the trends on Twitter.

Casino is the 4th single from the looming project, which is slated for release on November 4th.

Entitled BHOVAMANIA as a play on his Bhova moniker, the album has already spawned such songs as Python with Moozlie and Don Design, Monuments, Energy with Gemini Major, as well as Cross My Heart.

The album will be AKA’s first studio album and full body of work since 2017’s Touch My Blood. Already available for pre-order, the album is will also be the rapper’s 4th.

With the looming release, we will soon be reflecting on the year that was for SA Hip Hop. Earlier this year, we polled you on which Hip Hop album is most anticipated in your books. Now that Cassper Nyovest has shaken the charts with AMN, and Nasty C with Zulu Man With Some Power, the conversation is about to go there.

Shane Eagles Shakes Twitter With his Boner

Move over Tyga.

Published

on

Shane Eagle

He typically maintains a low profile, but fans are now just finding out that Shane Eagle knows how to get a little nasty from time to time. The rapper left very little to the imagination when on Wednesday he shared a photo of him showing off his print.

Unprovoked, Topless Eagle shared a black and white selfie with him holding his phallus through shorts. Doing what it was deployed to do, the photo has since sparked a frenzy on the Twitter.

And while reactions to the post have ranged from thirsty Oohs and shocked ‘what the hell’s’, there’s no doubt that Shane knows exactly what he’s up to.

It’s been days since American rapper Tyga launched his OnlyFans and shared a nude, bringing about the kind of clout he hasn’t seen since leaving Kylie Jenner. The year is 2020, and the rappers are switching things up.
