The doccie, which is available exclusively on Apple Music, "is a look behind the curtain as to how a kid from Illovo, Durban became the household name in hip hop that he is today," a press statement explains.

Directed by Andrew Sandler, the documentary will also see the 23-year-old rapper open up about his relationship with his father and losing his mother at just 11 months old.

"Focusing on the close relationship he now has with his father, Nasty C reveals in a poignant moment that he didn't always have his father's blessing to make music, and after the passing of his mother when he was 11 months old, reflects on how he didn't have the support that he needed but persevered regardless," the statement reveals. 

Nasty C's album, Zulu Man With Some Power, is available from 28 August.
