OneDa’s signature lyric ‘Manny on the rise’ applies to the rapper herself too. She’s on the rise with high-vibration collaborations (Gabe Gurnsey, Mr Scruff) that combine catchy wordplay and gold-plated flow, all fired by an empowered philosophy that she shares in her regular Pussy Power talks. The music bumps and rolls, bringing pumped-up basslines, spare drums and grimey synths that provide the perfect landscape for her vocal vibe energy. Her tracks bring shades of Ruff Ryders, especially Eve, and especially if they’d teamed up with Burna Boy. There are shades of Lauryn Hill’s glow, and she’s channeling Ms Dynamite: an innovator – she informed a lot of UK MCs’.
“I’m coming for hits now. I’m with Heavenly – even the name is right”
