He calls himself M.anifest, and by the name one should expect some level of quality rhymes and MC’ing. Manifestations shows him to be a rapper who has the knowledge to drop incredible rhymes, and a flow that is easy to listen to.

From the energetic reggae influenced “Babylon Breakd Own” that will work well on the dancefloor to the soulful “Bring Me Down” and “Too Tired” M.anifest proves that he is one of the most versatile Emcees in the game. With a voice that is partially reminiscent of Roots Manuvas timbre, he is able to create hooks that keep in your ear through out the day. He speaks about his roots in Ghana and his journey to the United States, centering himself in Minnesota, and coming up with an outlook that is as harsh and bitter as America itself, but makes sure to let everyone know that when one man struggles, every man struggles, whether it’s where you’re at, where you’ve been, or of course where you’re from. His observations culminates into some incredible songs where you feel like you’re listening to someone with an incredible gift. He knows how to speak and write, a hip-hop craftsman in a field that has been lacking … craft

Fans of Common, the early Slum Village, Madlib, Pete Rock or good old Hip Hop in general will be more then pleased with this release.

“Definately a name to be looking out for in the independent field in the future.”
