The South African Rapper, Nasty C, recently signed to Universal Music, unveils his new track “They Don’t” with T.I. A peaceful but deeply engaged song, whose income will be donated to different organisations.
As the protests in tribute to George Floyd and the marches for the rights of blacks in the United States and around the world continue to take on new dimensions, artists from around the world have come up with a variety of tracks referring to these events. Whether it may be YG, Denzel Curry, Meek Mill, Tee Grizzley but also Nasty C accompanied by T.I, rappers are speaking out.
It is on a very calm and soft production, that the South African rapper Nasty C raps some sad and negative lyrics. The track is a distressing statement of the living conditions and the reality of a person of color in the face of the injustices of apartheid in South Africa and the police violence in the USA. The two rappers have built this piece for their different thoughts and criticisms.
They dont want me to win
They don’t want me to eat
They don’t wanna see a young blackman succeed
They dont want me to sleep
They dont want me to dream
They don’t wanna see my people living good and at ease
Marked by a general negativism, the song is intended to be encouraging. All funds will be donated to two associations. Until freedom, a social justice association tackling systemic racial injustices in the world, and the Solidarity Fund, a fund to provide food, water and shelter to people affected by the COVID-19 in South Africa.
