Smino, Monte Booker, Bari & Jay2 Drop Impressive New Single "Manegos" As Zero Fatigue Crew

Smino Monte Booker

Quickly rising rapper Smino has become a favorite of ours with his incredible debut album blkswn as one of our favorite releases of the year so far and his next level live performances. He’s back with another new song “Manegos” as part of his three-man group Zero Fatigue that also includes Jay2 and Bari grabbing production from talented Soulection affiliate Monte Booker.  

Monte Booker has a knack of making some of the smoothest hip-hop production we’ve heard in a minute as he handled much of the production on Smino’s recent album and joined him on tour. “Manegos” is no different as it makes use of a airy instrumental setting the foundation for a very soulful collaboration. As usual, Smino impresses with his hybrid verse singing and rapping showing off both his intricate lyrical abilities and singing voice while both Bari and Jay2 both prove why they’re artists to be taking seriously. Stay tuned for more from this exciting group and enjoy!

Quickly rising rapper Smino has delivered his smooth debut 18-track album blkswn. The St. Louis to Chicago artist has a unique sound blending a soulful style of singing and rapping that is in a similar vein as Chance The Rapper and Anderson .Paak, but keeping his sound entirely his own. He decided to drop the album today on 3/14 to represent his St. Louis area code of 314.

We were recently blown away by standout album single "Anita" and are pleased by the full project. Smino was born into a musical family and this shows in his music based around a live, funky and soulful sound. His singing is incredibly catchy and melodic while his raps are fluid and technical making for a hybrid sound that works so well.

The entire project is filled with soul. Everything from the instrumentals to his delivery is soulful as he skips along to the beat singing a catchy melody before bursting into a furious verse showcasing his diverse skill set. He brings on minimal features from vocalists as well as production by Soulection’s Monte Booker, his past collaborator THEMpeople and more. Stream the full album below and enjoy!
