Big Shaq is still trying to make his freestyle known.
Comedian Michael Dapaah continues to bank off his “The Ting Goes” freestyle that first aired on Charlie Sloth’s “Fire In the Booth” segment on BBC Radio 1Xtra. After his verses amassed viral memes and countless parodies, Michael, A.K.A. Big Shaq, turned his freestyle into an official recording. Today, he has blessed his fans with a video that features him, of course, in a fur-lined jacket, because "Mans Not Hot."
In just over four minutes, the video sees Big in downtown Toronto, Miami, on stage performing, again dressed in his jacket. The most notable part is by far his attendance at the BET Awards where DJ Khaled comes into the shot calling Big a "legend." Waka Flocka, Jim Jones and Lil Yachty also pop in the video.
In a recent interview, Big was asked how he came to write "Mans Not Not."
“Boom, basically – everywhere I go I wear my jacket babes – do you know what I’m sayin’? So it’s like, it’s just me telling my story," he said. "It doesn’t matter where I am, what I do, whether I’m in the sauna, whether I’m on the beach, whether I’m with my girl at the spa – man’s never hot. It’s that simple. It’s not really a story – it’s a lifestyle.”
If any more tracks get dropped from the comedian turned maybe-rapper, it's for sure going to be based on his sense of humour. When asked to share any messages to his fans, he stated how much he appreciated the support that has been passed his way, and urges everyone to continue to "big up yourself."
"Make sure that when you’re going out, you wear socks, because I’ve been seeing some people coming out with no socks and that. You know, your toes looking like Cheetos, we don’t need all of that. Make sure you stick to one barber, do you know what I’m sayin? Don’t cheat on your barber cos some of you lots hairlines are looking a bit mad – but obviously I appreciate you because you’re supporters. And brush your teeth twice a day. That’s it.”
