MC Quakez & Roadman Shaq – Fire in the Booth (The Thin’ Goes Skrrrr!)
British comedian Michael Dapaah plays the roles of MC Quakez and Roadman Shaq in his Fire in the Booth freestyle. It is the second Fire in the Boothperformed by a comedian after 2015’s R.S.
Dapaah begins the freestyle as MC Quakez, an aspiring UK rapper who thinks he has bars but doesn’t realise how bad he is, continuously missing the drop during the first half of the freestyle.
MC Quakez and his partner Shakes then exit for Roadman Shaq (also played by Dapaah) to take over the booth to spit over 67’s “Let’s Lurk”.
Fire in the Booth is a long-running radio freestyle segment on BBC 1Xtra, hosted by Charlie Sloth. It is similar in vein to American freestyle segments like Sway’s “5 Fingers of Death”, except it features upcoming MCs as well as established acts to showcase their lyricism. The segment is highly respected among the British rap audience and has propelled multiple careers.

Check on the lyrics below:
[Verse 1: Roadman Shaq]
2 plus 2 is 4
Minus 1 that’s 3, quick maths
Everyday man’s on the block, smoke trees
See your girl in the park, that girl is a uckers
When the ting went quack-quack-quack, you man were ducking
Hold tight Asnee, he’s got the pumpy
Hold tight my man, he’s got the frisbee
I trap trap trap on the road, movin’ that cornflakes
Rice Krispie, hold tight my girl Whitney
On the road doin’ ten tours, allow my toes
You man thought I froze
I see a peng girl then I pose
If she’s not on it I ghost
Hah, look at your nose
What? You dickhead!
Look at your nose
Nose long like garden hose, shhhh, you get me?
Boom, man’s gonna come back in
You know like that, you’re feelin’ that
You dun know, I see you shiverin’ and that
Don’t get shook man’s here you protected-ed
Let’s go, boom
[Verse 2: Roadman Shaq]
Hop out the four door with the .44
It was 1, 2, 3 and 4
Chillin’ in the corridor, your dad is 44
And he still calling man for a draw
Let him know, when I see him, I’m gonna spin his jaw
Take my Twix by force
Send man shop by force
Your girl knows I’ve got the sauce, no ketchup
Just sauce, raw sauce
Boom, yo, gah
The ting goes Skrrrat!
Pap pap ka ka ka!
Skidiki pap pap!
And a pu pu drrrr boom!
Du du ku ku tun tun!
You dun know, Big Shaq
Ha, yo, yeah yeah
Alright, fire-fire-fire in the booth
You get me, man’s not hot
I tell her man’s not hot
I tell her man’s not hot
The girl told me take off your jacket
I said babes, man’s not hot
Yo, man can never be hot
Perspiration ting, Lynx effect
Yo, you dun know
