Fresh off his scene stealing guest verse on AKA’s latest single “Lemons (Lemonade)“, Nasty also released a project of his own in the form of Ivyson Army Tour Mixtape. Boasting 10 tracks, the mixtape is another illustration of the talented emcee’s current headspace, in that it’s a playful yet seriously crafted and executed project.
In recent years, Nasty has been an artist that’s just coasting and enjoying the fruits of his labour. He releases music on his own terms, at his own time and it doesn’t seem like there’s anything he wants to prove. The music itself is playful without being unserious, indicating that the KZN native is simply enjoying himself.
The mixtape is a star-studded affair, spanning collaborations with Blxckie, Emtee, Nadia Nakai, Tellaman, Cassper, as well as Domani, Case-Klowzed, and crownedyung. The production duties are handled by a diverse group of local and international producers including CEDES, Gianna Capovilla, AlexanderLewis, Dylan Graham and Taylor King.
Having enjoyed a successful run of his nationwide Ivyson Army tour in the first quarter of the year, the mixtape serves as a fitting celebration of that feat. It is also good preparation for the emcee’s upcoming 4th studio album, without him and his team compromising on the quality of the music.
