Zero Fatigue has risen out of the depths of the midwest’s music scene to become one of the most prominent young collectives in the country. With Smino’s (@SminoBrown) success backed by Monte Booker’s (@montebooker) production, culminating in his debut project blkswn, the gang is on a roll in 2017. With Bari Allen (@BariAllen) and Jay2 (@Jay2AintShit) heating up the summer as well, all of the aforementioned members come together to create the posse cut “Manegos”.
With Monte bringing the futuristic synths coupled with his classic rapid percussion, Bari ignites the track with bars early on, such as “She a lethal weapon like Murtaugh, yeah she pop off”. The punchlines coming at a swift pace, he passes the baton to Smino as he gives his take on making “Missouri a marquee” and crooning about his “favorite sweet”. After going back and forth for a bit, Jay2 goes in for his finishing move, claiming “This my show, feel like Chappelle, damn” among other braggadocios lines. A nice breakdown from Booker completes the electro infused classic.
You can peep “Manegos” below, and be on the look out for the ENTIRE Zero Fatigue collective come this summer and beyond.
