Back in September, UK-based comedian Michael Dapaah visited Charlie Sloth's Fire In The Booth segment on BBC Radio 1Xtra, bringing along two of his characters, MC Quakez and Big Shaq. The latter's hilarious "the ting goes" moment turned into a massive meme. At some point, Shaquille O'Neal decided to step up and put bars to beat with a tiny diss, but truth be told, Big Shaq was already out of here, primarily because his "Mans Not Hot" bars got turned into an official song that had already skrrr pop pop pop'd on iTunes.
This week, though? Big Shaq proved that he's gaining steam with the release of the official "Mans Not Hot" music video, which has already amassed 1.1 million views (at the time of this writing) on YouTube. The actual video? It's nothing too special, aside from seeing Shaq make his jokes IRL. Not only is he (alongside select members of his crew) rocking parkas in Miami, but you see Shaq at the BET Hip Hop Awards, chatting it up with DJ Khaled, Lil Yachty, and even our very own Complex News anchor Speedy Morman.
I guess the real question is, what next? Does Dapaah keep Big Shaq going, or is on to the next one? Check out the full video up above.
