That along with his third studio album “Zulu Man With Some Power” which was released last summer, a Netflix documentary “Zulu Man in Japan” and now the release of his latest single Black and White which featured US R&B singer Ari Lennox and the music video which has just arrived, Nasty C has been a very busy man!
