The annual BET awards are nearing and Nasty C was nominated in the best international act category with AKA and Babes Wodumo.
He was invited by Sway Calloway, the host of the famous radio station and was asked about how he got into rapping. He explained that he started at the age of 9 and he had massive influences from T.I and Lil Wayne.

Sway even tweeted Nasty C after:
