It’s yet another year where Canadian music journalist Nardwuar the Human Serviette takes a trip to SXSW and rolls out the interviews. He recently spent some time with rapper Rico Nasty and may have caught her off-guard with just how much information he found out about her past. 

Before the two began a walk down Nasty’s memory lane, they excitedly greeted each other before Nardwuar gifted the rapper with a Joan Jett record. The present also came with an original Joan Jett promo photo, something that caused Nasty to freak out even more. She went on to share how her love for Jett began when she heard the song “Bad Reputation” in Shrek and has been obsessed with the iconic rock ‘n’ roller ever since.

Nardwuar continued to surprise Nasty throughout the interview, bringing up things about her past that she couldn’t believe he would know about. One of the funniest moments is when Nardwuar gives Nasty her own cassette and she looks amazed while admitting that she’d never seen one in real life. The gifts kept pouring in as Nasty also received an LP of The Smiths and of D.C. rapper Nonchalant as well as Cheech and Chong rolling papers.

This interview will make you feel as if you’re on a “But wait, there’s more!” game show as Nasty is shocked over and over. Watch as she also talks about Norega, Old Bay Seasoning, freestyling when she was just five-years-old, working through depression, and more below.
