David Ngcobo originates from Durban in the Kwazulu-Natal Province. He started rapping at the age of nine, having been influenced by his older brother who was a producer at the time. He eventually mastered the process of music production and began adding his vocals on the beats he was making, later signing to Durban-based artist management company, Free World Music.

The stage name 'Nasty C' was given to him by the first producer he ever worked with. He looks up to fellow South African rappers AKA, Khuli Chana and Reason, and stated that he was motivated by their work ethic.
