DJ Mic Smith x M.anifest 'I No Get Time' (Produced By DJ Juls)

Ghana's DJ Mic Smith, M.anifest, and DJ Juls team up on the bouncy 'I No Get Time.'

Accra label BBnZ resident and E.L. go-to DJ Mic Smith crashed hard on our radar this week with his bouncy new single. Produced by labelmate and Jungle Book Beat Tape mastermind DJ Juls, "I No Get Time" features some quotable verses on life on the grind from Ghanaian emcee royalty M.anifest. "The Shutdown King" explained to GhanaWeb, "‘I no get time, talks about how people are on their hustle making sure they get their daily bread." The track marks his fourth single, and we presume it will find a spot on his forthcoming collaboration-jammed full-length debut. Until then, listen and download "I No Get Time" with M.anifest below.
