After a brief rapping hiatus to focus on his production, South Carolina native Mantiz returns for a special lyrical performance in honor of Father’s Day. A few months ago, Mantiz was blessed with his first child, which overwhelmed him with motivation to record and produce this dedication, titled “March 26th”.
Mantiz has been hard at work for the last few years grooming himself for the producer big leagues. Once longtime friend and colleague Jetsonmadelinked with Da Baby, he finally got his foot in the door. Teaming up with Jetson and Spaceboy, he scored production credits on Rico Nasty’s “Fashion Week”, and Da Baby’s “Gospel”. Now an in-demand producer, Mantiz stays busy providing quality beats for artists, but he still has an undeniable gift of lyrical expression, as proven in “March 26th”.
Mantiz and his beautiful wife welcomed their first child into the world on March 26th, 2020, hence the title. Mantiz effortlessly flows from the heart and makes listeners feels every bit of his words for his son. As he mentions him making his debut during times of pandemics and racism, he gives a harsh dose of reality, while ensuring his family’s security over a melodic, soulful beat. The love and concern speaks high volumes in the record, and is something every single parent, of any race, can feel in their soul.
