Lock up your grandparents, the real menace to society is here. When Manchester rapper Mennis picks up the mic, mayhem reigns. His thoughtful rhymes and well-placed syllables on “Kingdom,” his cover of Jay-Z’s “Somewhereinamerica”, really boasts his ability. Taken from his current project, XCIX, Mennis glides atop the Hit-Boy beat with verses so hot you may need to rewind each time after listening. The live band in the video brings the song to life even more.
Mennis employs a powerful, airy tone for the cut’s lighter parts but doesn’t hold back when elucidating his attempt to thrive in a world of inequality and division. Stir the antics of Dennis, the famous cartoon character, together with Mennis, and voila—you’ve got an underground rapper painting pictures with a mean Mancunian twang. Watch below.
