DJ Double D Enlists Zoocci Coke Dope, Benny Afroe & Manu WorldStar for New Single ‘Grocery Store’

Listen to DJ Double D's new single 'Grocery Store' featuring Zoocci Coke Dope, Benny Afroe & Manu WorldStar.

South African hip-hop DJ, producer and sound engineer DJ Double D's new song features some of South Africa's young talent— Zoocci Coke Dope, Benny Afroe & Manu WorldStar.

A rubbery bassline, normally heard on R&B and West Coast G funk, is anchored by 808s alongside a cushion of pads. "Grocery Store" contains a combination of raps and melodies.

Describing how the song came together, DJ D Double D explains:

"I first heard the hook of this song and beat in studio months back with Zoocci Coke Dope. I was then approached by Raphael Benza of Vth Season who was A&R on this song with Benny Afroe's verse on it as we had been speaking about doing a collaboration for a while. I immediately knew that I needed to be involved in this single and complete the song to give the fans this phenomenal single."

DJ D Double D adds: "I then approached Manu WorldStar to lace the final verse on the single as we had also been speaking of working on a song together for some time and he completely bodied it. 'Grocery Store' was then born."

Stream "Grocery Store" by DJ Double D featuring Zoocci Coke Dope, Benny Afroe & Manu WorldStar on Apple Music and Spotify.
