Premiere: SA's Mananz Remixes Royce da 5'9" x Skillz x Diamond D 'One for the Money'

Stream Royce da 5'9's South African produced remix of "One For The Money," featuring Skillz and Diamond D.


After teaming up with ProVerb and M.anifest on powerhouse collab "Proverb's Manifest," South Africa's Mananz adds his supreme boom-bap flavors to a rework of "One For The Money," a slick contribution to Coalmine RecordsUnearthed compilation from Okayplayer favorites Royce da 5'9", Skillz and Diamond D. The Cape Town beatsmith absorbs the G-Squared-produced heater and flips it with expert precision, supplanting the monstrous horns and echoing strings of the OG take with some hard blues licks and a scaling synthesized refrain leading into the hook. It's a masterful rework of a track that would already make you sweat. Unearthed is an independent hip-hop fan's golden goose and this Mananz flipped flame is a clear standout. Listen to the latest rework to come from the compilation below. The iTunes Deluxe Edition of Unearthed is due out next Tuesday (5/27), but is now available for Pre-Order here.
