2. Nasty C (South Africa)
If there’s one rapper who completely took Africa by storm in 2016, it’s Nasty C! The South African teenager was largely unknown outside S.A about 12 months ago. The collaboration with Davido and Cassper Nyovest on the track “Juice Back (Remix)” completely changed all that.
South Africa’s “Freshman of the Year” 2015 became Africa’s “Freshman of the Year” 2016, and is now ending the year as one of the “Coolest Kids in Africa“. Such has been Nasty C’s rise in 2016, the likes of RCA Records are looking to sign him up (if it hasn’t happened already).
Nasty C‘s debut album “Bad Hair” is every rap fan’s fantasy album. I fully expect him to take the game to the next level in 2017.
