Two relatively recent loosies from Mannie Glover.
“What’s Happenin (Remix)” reunited half the Hot Boys over a Mannie beat to little fanfare. Not exactly mindblowing, but it was nice to hear Juve & BG together doing Sir Mix-a-Lot impressions.
“D-Boyz” is a traditionally infectious Mannie banger featuring Tuskegee drop out Rich Boy kicking half knowledge – “we get fucked by the damn government, ’cause they the ones movin’ the hard white shit“, “we slanging hard cause we couldn’t get a job” – in the same vein of his slept on album closer, “Let’s Get This Paper.” Rich (Boy?) is a pretty smart rapper when he wants to be, but ultimately not a great one. It’s telling that rapping Mannie outshines him on his own track. In his own trap, no less. I’m still not sure why it didn’t make the album, when so much inferior shit did.
