London rapper Jay Prince recently dropped his latest single "Mandem," which features Shakka on the hook. The track deals with the rapper's increasing fame, simultaneously exploring the peaks and pitfalls of a rising status. If you aren't caught up on the lingo, "mandem" is essentially slang for the homies, and Shakka's chorus finds the rapper asking all those shady characters why they're only trying to roll with the duo now that they're poppin'.
Over a reverse-delay laden beat from J.LBS, Jay Prince spits fire with a proficient flow so evident in this generation of upcoming grime stars. Whether or not you're down with the UK sound, this crisp track is most definitely worth a listen.

E-40 better tell me when to go,
Cause these days I've been stressin' on the low
