Album Title: Glory
Release Date: 2006
Genre: Rap
Opening with "Don't Turn Away" featuring Justin Humes of Faithdown, Manafest rocks the mic with echoes of trip hop and lyrical rhythm that gets you nodding along to the beat instantly. It sounds almost like POD with Humes' echo, but Manafest puts a great spin on the track that makes it uniquely his own. Every song tells a narrative, unveiling aspects of Mana's life from a Canadian skateboarder to appearing on the cover of magazines throughout the US. He keeps it real with strong grooves, always original, no samples like P Diddy is famous for, which showcases his high credibility in making original art.

From "Impossible" with TFK's Trevor McNevan to the days of running away and being homeless, there is a gamut of emotions and situations addressed affecting real people today. Manafest is able to empathize and offer positive solutions as to how he got out of his mess. How many rappers do you know who do that? Not many. Glory is a great album for those with a love for wordplay and listening to the best name in rap this side of the border.
