Two dope tracks dropping at the same time is perfectly fine with me. I’ve gotten just that with Sydney based artists Manu Crooks and Anfa Rose. Both switch as features on Presence and All I Need, proving their worth as a duo. Last year was a breakthrough year for both, making waves internationally as the first Australian hip-hop artists to find global success.
Presence is captivating and echoey melodic rap goodness, with both Manu and Anfa adding dreaming rhymes with a confident twist. Punchlines are abundant such as “not athletic but I run the town,” segueing into the softer, but just as memorable record All I Need. More of a romantic cut, Manu and Anfa continue to complement their skills over more production by DOPAM!NE. As a duo and individually, both can undeniably make music far ahead of the SoundCloud universe. Word is Anfa is dropping a new project soon, so while you wait, give both records a spin.
