"Exclusive: MANi$H Interview"

DubCNN recently caught up with rising L.A. artist, MANi$H, for an exclusive interview. In this interview we cover a multitude of topics, including his origins in hip-hop, the ups and downs of growing up in Los Angeles, Ca., his influences, upcoming celebrity features and much, much more. - DubCNN


"“MAMBA HUSSLE”: LOS ANGELES’ NEWEST ANTHEM BY MANI$H. K.WILLIAMS"

Conceptual visuals to the actual song could easily be considered a lost art at this point, but it’s very refreshing to come across an artist who understands the importance. “Mamba Hussle” is the quintessential conceptual visual where the song a-like- combines for a showpiece. The lyrics are firm and the vibe of the song is tightly gripped with a large dose of reality- both legends who represented Los Angeles are gone. KOBE & NIPSEY.

The introduction of the song is an inserted narrative of the late NIPSEY HUSSLE speaking knowledge. Shortly after, the beat drops and the lyrics flow along. The production of “Mamba Hussle” spells everything West Coast in the mere fashion of it having the “West Coast” slap feel. This is a song of pure creativity as MANi$H unselfishly showcased his respect for both during the song.

I took this opportunity to express on the visual that is now available on YouTube, but the actual song debuts 9/20 ON ALL PLATFORMS. ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW.

Aesthetically, we can agree that “Mamba Hussle” is a visual masterpiece. The dynamic of the song is that of high power, whether listening to it through the loud speaker or enjoying the visual, the song won’t lose any luster.

Hard bars will always be a standout in any song, but when the hook accentuates the lyrics, a movement is born. “MR.KOBE LIKE A MUTHAF*CKA/ AIN’T TALKIN’ ABOUT A STEAK” is a bar that shows that MANi$H has major wordplay too (https://youtu.be/0UAwMET50A8). “Mamba Hussle” is an experience of superb song composition. The song will forever be a staple and eventually monumental to the culture of Los Angeles!

"MANi$H Follows Up with a Self-Titled Album Release after ‘Ain’t Playin’ Success"

LOS ANGELES, CA – MANi$H considers music his safe haven, as it’s been that way his entire life. Though he didn’t come from a musically- inclined family, he always had a strong appreciation for music.

MANi$H comes up with the most intricate and unique songs, which boast a 90’s hip-hop meets RnB flow. “I talk about real life situations in my songs. I never really glorify the party life because my fans want to relate to real life scenarios,” said the artist. You can compare his sound to Ice Cube or Busta Rhymes, fused with serious West coast flair.

Fans are eagerly awaiting the release of his album, which is due out October 6th. To tide the crowds over until his self-titled album comes out, MANi$H released his hit single “Ain’t Playin” to let people catch a vibe. “The album is very consistent.

MANi$H is known for bringing a variety of perspectives to the table, which makes him so increasingly popular.

All things considered, the biggest part of the rapper’s artistry is how authentic he is. People can feel the realness in his delivery right off the bat.

"MANi$H announces himself to the world with new single ‘Ain’t Playin’"

A new sound out of Southern California is here from artist MANi$H, and his unique sound and style is one that cannot be ignored.

His new single, “Ain’t Playin,” is an announcement to the world that he’s here to stay and his brand of music is legitimate. With a flow reminiscent of Ice Cube or Busta Rhymes, MANi$H rails against the haters while declaring to the world that he’s going to deliver a high-quality sound that will not be pushed to the side. He’s bringing it hard with this single, and anyone who isn’t ready for the real deal should prepare themselves because MANi$H “Ain’t Playin.”

MANi$H said his music is inspired from growing up in a single-parent household by a very young mother who attempted to provide the best ways she knew how. His music is about providing a mannish perspective of all of life’s opportunities by pushing forward. MANi$H was born in Portland, Oregon and raised in a variety of places along the West Coast – from Southern California to Alaska. In addition to his single mother, the streets became his teacher – and he spent time in youth detention centers and foster homes, where he learned how to hustle his way out of situations and catapult himself beyond his inflicted environments. Along the way he developed a passion for music, and has maintained a focus and determination to be the change he wants to see. Today he lives as a coach, teacher and mentor to those he surrounds himself with.

“My stage name has a two-fold meaning,” he said. “I have a real aggressive and mannish delivery and perspective, but my niche is to keep people on point and help them appreciate that we can’t allow ourselves to slip. We’ve got to stay on our toes at all times, staying on our ‘man shit.’ That’s the consistent message throughout my music. It’s a reminder to understand that you’re going to encounter things in life that will cause you adversity, but if you remain unwavering and maintain your composure and self-dignity then you will always be a man first.”

MANi$H has a unique sound and delivery that is easy for fans to understand. He enunciates his words in ways that cut through to the core and challenge listeners to sit up and pay attention. Anyone who listens to his new album will be able to have a solid understanding of what he’s talking about, even when he uses metaphors to paint pictures of his deeper ideas. And those ideas are in-your-face and to the point, because MANi$H isn’t afraid to say what’s on his mind. Even when he changes up his wordplay and messes with syllables, his message is very consistent. Combine that with modern beats and a diverse sound, and his new album is sure to have people begging for more. - The Hype Magazine
