"Nasty Freestyle" is a song by American rapper T-Wayne. The song, a freestyle over the beat to Bandit Gang Marco's "Nasty" (2014), became a viral sensation in the spring of 2015; in particular, popular user-generated videos posted to Instagram and Vine featuring the song's opening couplet fueled the song's rise to prominence.[3] Released as a digital download in the United States by 300 Entertainment on May 4, 2015, it soon became a commercial success, peaking at number nine on the US Billboard Hot 100. As of July 2015, it has sold 785,562 copies domestically.[4] At the week ending April 26, the song had been illegally streamed 6.4 million times in the US.[5][verification needed]

Music video[edit]

Nasty Freestyle's music video was uploaded on T-Wayne's YouTube channel on February 28, 2015.[6][verification needed] The video consists of T-Wayne dancing around while lip syncing. The video was deemed to be low quality due to the shaky camera work, and a new one was filmed and was released a month later.[7][verification needed]

Remix[edit]

The official remix features Ty Dolla $ign & Chedda Da Connect. A music video of the remix was released on WorldStarHipHop YouTube channel on October 2, 2015.
