Bonkaz Samples Dizzee Rascal In “You Don’t Know”

“What d’you mean you don’t know?”

October 21, 2015

Here's a quick need-to-know about south London-based MC Bonkaz: he's had the nickname Bonkaz since he was little, he kills freestyles, and he first blew up this year with his icy debut single "We Run The Block" after teasing it, pre-internet style, live and on the radio for months. Oh, and Skepta is a fan. So now you know what to say when he asks you, what d'you mean you don't know?

The question comes in the raucous form of his new single "You Don't Know," which samples Dizzee Rascal's radio smash "Bonkers" (of course), and matches bass-heavy production with rapidfire verses and a chorus that won't quit. As Bonkaz himself says in the track's press release: “With this record I feel I was able to keep my rawness and the flows but also have a fun record that's very accessible."
