Massachusetts native DJ Manipulator made some noise this year after supplying D.I.T.C. with two bangers on their latest LP, D.I.T.C. Studios, and he’s continuing his winning streak this year with a grimy new single, “2 Drums,” featuring rugged New York spitter, Conway The Machine.
As the track’s title implies, there’s more to “2 Drums” than a single presentation sounds. That’s because Manipulator switches up the beat halfway through, providing listeners with a double-dose slappers that’s likely to snap some necks. And if they don’t, he can rely on Conway to take on the role a bruiser and cause some grave damage to anyone frontin’: “I’m the ni**a who you gotta watch how you speak to/ Break ni**as’ jaws, through a straw he gotta eat soup.”
“2 Drums” is but a mere sampling what Manipulator has in store for Hip-Hop heads in the next few months. That’s because the track serves as the first single f his forthcoming debut album, Stranger Than Paradise, which is set to drop in early ’17. Until then, you can keep “2 Drums” on repeat, but be careful: it may cause you to bare a permanent screw face.
“2 Drums” is now available through iTunes and all major digital retailers and streaming platforms, via Backcourt Records.
