South African rap star, David Junior Ngcobo better known as Nasty C has said his country’s Amapiano and Nigeria’s Afrobeats are better genres than Hip Hop.

The ‘Lemons’ crooner said Afrobeats and Amapiano are more original in terms of live instruments and melody, unlike rap.

Speaking in a trending video, Nasty C said most rappers sample a lot although he clarified that he is not considering switching genres.

The ‘Coolest Kid In Africa’ further stated that rappers use their lyrics to give the impression that they are rich even when he knows the reality is different.

Nasty C said: “Afrobeats and Amapiano are better than Hip-hop. Like music-wise. Let’s call a spade a spade, man.

“I mean, of course, there are some [Afrobeats and Amapiano] songs where it is like autotune heavy, this ngga not saying sht. He is just saying nysh a bunch of time. But live instrument rolls, original melodies, nxggas who can actually sing, that is music, bro. Their music lasts forever.

“Hip-hop, we sample a lot. I’m not being ungrateful to hip-hop. I love hip-hop. I am hip-hop to the core. I am hip-hop till I die. But hip-hop, we out here playing this weird game where it is like everyone is fake rich, fake balling, fake gangster.

“I’m sick and tired of hearing nxggas speaking about spending in songs. I’m like, ‘Nxgga, you spending nothing. Shut the f*ck up.”
