Ghanaian MC M.anifest breaks into 2012 with a raw and riveting video for a brand new song “Makaa Maka.”
Set in Madina and other gritty parts of Accra, Ghana, M.anifest raps fluidly from English to Twi to Pidgen, asserting his place in Ghanaian hip hop over raucous hard-hitting production from Kwabena Jones.

LA RAP ARTIST COOKBOOK's THE PARTY'S STILL JUMPIN ON SUZUKI SUPER BOWL AD- OFF FORTHCOMING LP "MUSICA GRANDE"
Southland rapper CookBook (of L.A. Symphony) has landed his new single "The Party's Still Jumpin'" in the latest Suzuki ad titled "Sled" which is set to air during this Sunday's Super Bowl. The spot has already received over 117,000 views in 2 short days!
The track is off CookBook's forthcoming album "Musica Grande" which is set to be release in April 2012. The new album features Chino XL, Eligh of Living Legends, Open Mike Eagle, Guilty Simpson, and of course, long time LAS bandmate, UNO Mas. More personal, and perhaps more edgier subject matter than he's tackled in the past, the sound is also bigger, having worked with Sam Knaak of Earwitness Records on additional live instrumentation, and incredible mixes. With "Musica Grande" CookBook is going for just that: Big!
For the second video off of his upcoming Mixtape “A Vintage State Of Mind,” (available 2/21/2012) Fokis takes time to pay homage to one of the West Coast’s most influential pioneers with #Salute (King Tee) by revisiting King Tee’s classic track “At Your Own Risk.” "This is one of my favorite beats of all time says Fokis. I had a lot of fun filming this video." King Tee will also featured on Fokis’ upcoming full-length LP “The Vintage Album.”
