Big Shaq has released a new remix of his hit track ‘Man’s Not Hot’ and it features some grime superstars.
The original single ‘Mans Not Hot’ has amassed over 100 million global streams, and his appearance on Fire in the Booth was a viral hit, spawning countless parodies and high profile fans. You can listen to the ‘MC Mix’ remix below.
Big Shaq is a creation by British comedian Michael Dapaah, taken from his online comedy series ‘Somewhere In London’. After a hugely successful appearance on Fire in the Booth, where Dapaah, as Big Shaq, freestyled “The girl told me, ‘Take off your jacket’ / I said, ‘Babes, man’s not hot’” the viral trend was born.
Dapaah released a Christmas version of the track in December, adding the distinctive sound of sleigh bells to create the unlikeliest addition to any festive playlist.
“I came back from New York the other day and I was in the kitchen with my two lads who, as you know, are ten and seven,” said Gallagher. “I told one of them to take his hoodie off while he’s having his lunch. He said – and I’d never heard it before – he said, ‘Mans not hot’.
“I was like, what? And he went, ‘Mans not hot’. And I went, ‘Who’s not hot?’. And he went ‘Man’.”
“That’s my guy there. My brother Noel,” Shaq told Radio X in response.
Quizzed on if he would play shows with Noel, Shaq said: “Yeah I think it will be special for the people, you know. We gotta give them something eplectical and electical and electrical”.
