The ascendant star in his DMV rap scene, 16-year-old rapper YungManny is known for his versatile songwriting and supernatural sense of melody. Today, YungManny announces his Confused EP, available to stream everywhere on May 27th.
Coming through with an impassioned single about going through hard times, Manny shares “Blessings In Disguise”. Packed with the candy-coated melodies that endears Manny to his fans, “Blessings In Disguise” finds Manny looking for silver linings after a breakup, as he stretches out his syllables into hooks. In the video, premiered by The FADER, Manny glides through a series of unfortunate situations–including an intense police interrogation, a support group meeting, and a violent family confrontation–acting as a narrator and a symbol of hope for the people involved.
Now emerging as one of his region’s most promising young stars, along with his older cousin and frequent collaborator Xanman, YungManny is primed to make the leap from local hero to national name. Stay tuned for Confused EP, which will host both “Blessings In Disguise” and “Margiela”.
