#BumpThis: D-Truce, BarelyAnyHook & BigFootInYourFace’s “Mango”

June 7, 2020

There’s so much new music being released that it’s hard for even the most loyal fans to wade through the trash to find the gems. That’s why we’ve created #BumpThis – a Friday series that features new songs, by and featuring Nigerians, that you absolutely need to hear.


D-Truce, BarelyAnyHook & BigFootInYourFace — “Mango”

D-Truce and BarelyAnyHook are two of the most gifted rising rappers working today. Individually, they are exceptional, so it’s no surprise that they soar even higher on their latest collaboration, “Mango”.

Flawlessly produced by BigFootInYourFace, the garage house-influenced banger finds both stars rapping about letting loose and having great sex. It’s the ideal summer song for a frustratingly summer-free year.

Speaking about what inspired the track, D-Truce said:

“Everyone is bored during the lockdown, and one of the things on a lot of people’s minds this period is sex. And opening OnlyFans accounts. So, we just channelled all of that into the song.”

Explaining the track’s interesting title, BarelyAnyHook said:

“It’s a fun song that also happens to be about the season, and mangoes are out during this season. This is the time when one of our premium fruits just happens to be available in abundance.” 

While both D-Truce and BarelyAnyHook are incredible on the song, delivering witty verses overflowing with Instagram-worthy captions, the track’s MVP is definitely BigFootInYourFace’s eclectic production work. 

Speaking about working on the song, he said:

“The first draft was made in an hour and a half. I sent that to Barely and D-Truce, and they loved it. After receiving their verses, the final production took two weeks to think through, and five hours to execute.”

There have been a few great Nigerian collaborations in 2020, and “Mango” is certainly one of them. From killer verses to a topical theme, every single thing about this gem of a track just works.
