Nasty C is a multi award-winning rapper who, despite growing up in Durban, the home of kwaito, house and gqom, carved a different path for himself in hip hop.  This path ultimately saw him become the youngest ever recipient of an award at the SA Hip Hop Awards in 2015, release a triple-platinum selling album in 2018, and ultimately go on to sign to a historic deal with Def Jam Records in early 2020.  Having toured 32 new markets last year alone, this trailblazer has a knack for filling up arenas and dominating the stage, and at only 23-year-old he is undisputedly the voice of a new generation with a third hit album (A Zulu Man With Some Power), mini-documentary (Origins) and a Netflix special (Zulu Man in Japan) under his belt in 2020 so far.

In this episode we're doing things a bit differently, getting African pop phenomenon and good friend to the show, Tresor, back at the mic for our first official catch-up. And it's fitting because his original podcast was one of our most streamed of all time.  The last time we spoke to Tresor, he promised Texx, when we did this again it would be at his beach house in Malibu and we feel like it would have been, but Covid-19 really went and screwed everything up. But – clearly it hasn’t stopped him from grinding because – break out the champagne – his third album, Nostalgia, has officially been certified GOLD. So sit back and listen to history in the making as we catch up Tresor now and follow things up with his original podcast from back in May.

We honestly can’t believe that so much has happened over the last two months of Texx Talks Season 2. We just need to get real for a second - the process of recording Season 2 in lockdown has not been without its ups and downs.  And if it wasn’t for the whole team, scattered around South Africa, keeping each other sane, we all would have lost our collective minds. But between the support of you, the listener, and TOMS - we managed to raise the bar and smash all of our expectations. So now let's LOOK BACK.   Outro Song: “Elevate” Matthew Loots and Barry van Zyl  Soundcloud   Extra Reading:   Texx and the City Texx Talks Previous Episodes The One And Only- Matthew Loots Keep talking with Texx Talks: Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Michael David Rosenberg – better known to all of us as Passenger - is an award-winning, chart topping singer-songwriter who commands the stage and your attention, like few solo acts can and do.
