19th December 2016 – Weekly Selecta


This tune had me at the first “manna wear black”.

The hook is catchy af. “I gotta learn to forget, even when they burn through bridge, I’ve got a hell of a pride and one ego and demons I deal with – Donae’O

Donae’O second studio album Grey Area is due in March 2017. I expect bangers to accompany the gun fingers and skank.

“Black” sees a collab with Donae’O, JME and Dizzee. It’s a sick tune with a sick flow and everyone’s verses goes hard. The video is sick, JME looks too gully and of course all the manna wear black.

I’m a black male so you can’t blackmail me – JME

Always happy to see more of Dizzee. After seeing him perform Boy in da Corner live I am gassed to hear him spit dat new new grime. “I wear black cuz I’m lazy, I wear black cuz I’m shady. I wore black on the creep with your lady” – Dizzee takes it away for me on this tune.

Watch here.

Big ups to Annie Mac as always. If you missed this tune the first time around like me don’t worry. Donae’o bringing the Afrobeats vibe as always over a grimey af beat.


Ghetts comes through on the final verse out of nowhere, unexpectedly. His verse is hard and flow on point. “I spend most of my days in deep thought mode cah a man try to dead me” Jheeez.

Funky. Grimey. Vibey.

Yes Yes.
