M.anifest is the type of MC who shakes your preconceived notions, perhaps even make you feel uncomfortable. Why is this rapper talking about global matters? Why the commitment to discussing his cultural and racial heritage? Why does he use big words and puns? Where is Akkra? This is Africa? I thought this was Minnesota?
Yeah, he’s an interesting cat, look out for two things from M.anifest this month: an interview with Zebra Is Food, and the Birds and The Beats tape which drops November 20th. Here’s a sneak peak.
Had me a sit down with M.anifest this past weekend and took the opportunity to get the inside scoop on Ghana, Minneapolis hip hop, and his current come up. Look out for that interview later on this week, in the meantime M.anifest hooked us up with this exclusive track to “leak”. I don’t know about you, but I’ll take this over that Maybach crap any day. Sorry Ricky, don’t hurt me!
