Nasty C, real name David Junior Ngcobo was on Turn Up a coupla weeks ago talking to Scoop about his track with DJ Switch, Tumi and Youngsta dubbed "Way Up". They also touched on his mixtape "Price City" which seems to be getting a lot of love judging by his Twitter timeline.He has also recently dropped "Juice Back" complete with a video, cav:

We caught up with this Durban lad to get the 411 on what's in store from him, what he's busy with and what his growth strategies for his brand are.

What is it about the Durban music industry that makes it conducive to producing so many musicians?

I think of late, more Durban DJ's , radio stations and promoters are coming together and showing more interest in Durban artists, playing more of our music and headlining us at their events. I think that gives us more inspiration to make more music and work harder.

At 18, what else do you do besides music?

My current focus is passing my exams, but my life is consumed by music. I direct my videos, edit them and produce most of my beats.

Now that things are poppin', would you consider moving to Jo'burg?

Durban is home and always will be. I know in order to make my brand stronger I will have to spend a great deal of time in JHB though. But for now it's just a consideration.

There’s a lot of talk about you being the future of SA Hip Hop: undue pressure or an opportunity? 

I'm honoured to be called the future of SA Hip Hop. There is definitely some pressure to live up to that title but I try not to let it get to me. I stay focused and stay working everyday. All I want to do is make good music for people to appreciate and enjoy.

Describe the rest of 2016 – and future- that Nasty C envisions for himself?

For 2016 and beyond, I want to do more features with my favourite artists, like Cassper Nyovest, Da Les, Ice Prince,Emmy Gee... the list goes on. I want the name Nasty C to be a good clean brand.
