If you’ve been active on Twitter and other social media platforms for some time now, you must have noticed that internet is on fire with a new meme, “the ting does.” It is from Ghanaian UK-based comedian Michael Dapaah, who took over Charlie Cloth’s Fire In The Booth segment on BBC Radio 1 Xtra to spit some bars. The segment has been a place for UK rappers and Grime acts to break through and Dapaah did just that with MC Quakez and Shakes.
The opening spot had Quakez and Shakes on it, but they seem to lack the confidence to hit the song right on the drop. They do manage to get their track “Balance” (out on all DSPs) in before Sloth brings in a man who is so hot, he isn’t hot – Michael Dapaah ‘Roadman Shaq’.
This is where things get mad and things start to pop off. The 13-second clip you have started to see around comes from Shaq, scatting like no other has potentially done in the BBC studios. And if somebody asks you take off your jacket, you now have the response. “Man’s not hot.”
It became a worldwide anthem, as some his fame and social media followers has skyrocketed, with recognition from some top acts and also making MC Quakez and Shakes’ ‘Balance’ number 2 on UK Viral chart on spotify.
So guys, all you need is one positive mistake and booooom, just like Speed Darlington, you go blow bros abi babe; ‘the ting goes skrrra pap pap ka ka ka skidiki pap pap and a pu pu drrrr boom SKYAAA du du ku ku tun tun poom poom’.
