Ghanaian MC M.anifest has released a video for "suffer," his latest single off his upcoming 2011 sophomore release: "Coming to America: Immigrant Chronicles." M.anifest who has been featured on MTV & AllHipHop.com as an artist to watch out for, paints a vivid inspirational picture in suffer complemented beautifully by visuals shot in Madina: the Accra neighborhood M.anifest was born and raised in. "You've never known joy if you've never had to suffer" is how the MC resolves a personalized and witty narrative of the struggles and joy that personify the beauty of the human condition.
The video was shot by Twin Cities filmmaker Justin Schell durng his one month stay in Ghana with M.anifest to film the documentary "We rock long distance." The final visual outcome was a collaboration with Six-Ton Productions. The excellent production on the song was handled by M.anifest's frequent collaborator Budo (Rhymesayers).

From growing up in NYC and understanding these issues, Gee Dubs decided to let loose while tapping in on the subject. Produced and Directed by Mike Chops, the two took to recording this track/skit with an aggressive attitude due to the same negative experiences.
