What happens when you combine Pharcyde's Bizarre Ride 2, DBZ, Final Fantasy 7, R&B melody, & heavy 808's? Add a little controlled substance to the mix and you'll have Los Angeles based artist Manus. Originally hailing from the mountainous Northeast of Vermont, Manus has been carving a niche for himself on the West Coast. He has a distinctively melodic, unapologetically honest and refreshingly musical take on hiphop with a penchant for nerd-centric subject matter. Fortunately, you won't need to sink any paychecks into collectible superhero figures to "get it." Working with notable artists like CRNKN and Nick Catchdubs, as well as collaborating with DMC Champion and producer Shiftee--Manus has already carved a niche out for himself amidst the codeine haze trap records of the day.
