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.
