Michael Dapaah aka Big Shaq Just Dropped 'Mans Not Hot' and It's Fire

Michael Dapaah just turned a comedic freestyle into a hit—and we're here for it.

You know him from the viral Fire In The Booth freestyle that yielded arguably the best meme of the year, but comedian Michael Dapaah just took it to the next level and dropped "Mans Not Hot," under the alias Big Shaq, on all streaming platforms for all to get hype to.

Album art and all.

We were cackling until we noticed the track is indeed kinda hot with the high quality production since the freestyle has been serving up the laughs for weeks now. Dapaah is still riding the high—and so can we.

 

Now, it's OK to go "2+2 is 4" when walking down the street with Big Shaq in your ear.

Because even these feds are at it.

And these little girls are killing it.

Take a listen to "Mans Not Hot" below.

Rema Welcomes 2021 With New Single 'Bounce'

The Don Jazzy produced track reminds us of why the Nigerian singer-songwriter is topping charts.

Nigerian golden boy Rema took his time on deciding how to start of 2021—and we're glad he did.

The afropop hitmaker is out with his first project of the year, "Bounce", after stunning fans with word of an upcoming album, and the cooks in this kitchen have not disappointed.

Keeping it in the Mavin Records family, legendary producer Don Jazzy sprinkles his magic on the track, while undoubtedly motivating the young singer-songwriter to be his best self. And with this track being like nothing we've heard from Rema before, one could say Jazzy succeeded. "Bounce", fast-paced and fierce, is a love song dedicated to bewitchingly beautiful and blessed bottoms. The candid declaration and hip shaking beat are a force duo and we can't help but love it.

Of the single and collaboration with head honcho Don Jazzy, Rema says, "This record was inspired by the luscious and magnificent body of the African woman. Furthermore, I'm really excited about this tune because it's my first single with the legendary Don Jazzy."

Honestly, when you start the year off with a banger, you get to make songs about butts.
