Nasty C – King ft. A$AP Ferg | Jungle
Produced by American beatsmith, Cody Rhones, ‘Jungle’ is a trap-happy song and a meditation on Nasty C’s experience of the concrete jungle that is Johannesburg.
“The jungle is our community where anything and everything happens,” said Nasty C. “It’s where people live recklessly. There are no rules because you can do whatever you want. The jungle is also Jo’burg. A lot more stuff happens there than what happened when I used to be in Durban. Those two meanings are intertwined.”
While ‘Jungle’ sees a more aggressive Nasty C re-enter the music scene, it’s the “fake-woke” who are skating on thin ice on ‘King.’ The song, produced by South Africa’s Tweezy, is a tongue-in-cheek look at misguided youth who refer to themselves as “young kings.”
