One of the first songs I ever heard by E-Mannie was Make a Statement from his album Return of the Trill, and boy did it thump as hard as any southern rap track you've heard. From then on it was clear that E-Mannie was on a mission to lead the classic southern rap sound back into the forefront of listeners' minds. For that reason we had to get him in for this interview to pick his brains about his influences and how he intends to use his own style to revive the once hugely popular sound. With the passing of Pimp C, E-Mannie transitioned from producing to applying his skills to rapping. “…after Pimp passed it just hit me… that’s when I went straight into the room and made a beat.” And over night, be it a very important one, E-Mannie the rapper was born.
“…after Pimp passed it just hit me… that’s when I went straight into the room and made a beat.”
Return of the Trill features all you could want out of a southern bread variety of tunes. compilation of songs from the crawling beats, screwed raps, and bass that’ll make any grain gripper proud. And with that I’ll leave this article in the words of E-Mannie “bumpin my screw, jammin’ Fat Pat, blowing on them swishas whatcha know about that. I’m bumpin’ my screw, them underground kingz, working wood wheel with them diamonds on my grill…” . Be sure to check out his latest single Man in my City with production from Browny Beats.
