I picked up the name Mantiz from the word 'mantis', which means "prophet" or "seer". I dropped the 's' and replaced it with a 'z', and so all of my nicknames followed. And from there my journey began.
I released a series of projects throughout high school and while in college. I started my own record label (R Dot Entertainment), my own in-house production company (The Block Symphony, LLC), and my own clothing line (Rkive Clothing Company).
I'm still a somewhat "underground" artist, but I do business with a major mind. I never forgot where my home is, even though I believe home is where the heart is. So with that said, I have a LOT of places to call "home".
I'm very down to earth... so even when the success multiplies, you can STILL get to know me for ME.
