Mantiz & Rock Ransom - Stay Highdrated EP

Well... We made it. This project was actually a few years in the making due to my recent success as a producer and a new father all at the very beginning of a pandemic. I guess I'll start from the top.

Rock and I have known each other for over a decade now. We've bonded over many different ideas and interests, then I became a smoker... and nothing was the same. Through a few quick conversations, he became my artist as well as my longtime friend and we began working on music for his R Dot debut. I got the idea to create a joint EP to showcase our chemistry as his introductory presentation. No, we're not a group. He's done that already. We just really like rapping together because we're really good at it.

So over the course of November 2018 to April 2019, we created these songs to present a small 15-minute mini-movie for your listening pleasure. Many stories we have to share about the "behind the scenes" of this project, but you just gotta stay tuned to catch them. Seriously, stay tuned. 

It's so much I really want to say, but I don't want to be long-winded about it. 

Stay Highdrated. Thank You For Listening.

Mantiz & Rock Ransom - Hangover Freestyle (feat. Frank Jordon) (prod. Mantiz)

 


The gang has been really working might I say... In fact, I literally finished recording, producing, mixing, and slightly mastering this joint just minutes before uploading it here. It's not much, but it should be enough to hold you over until we get back to you. The best thing you can do right now is to like my Facebook page, and then  join The Listeners to stay updated on my moves, trust me on this.

Shoutout to Rock Ransom and Frank Jordon

Jack Harlow - Route 66 (Official Music Video)

 


It's an incredible feeling to make a melody, hear it become a song you love, see it performed on late night TV, have it played daily in the artist's hometown as a city anthem, and then become an official music video for the world. Jet told this was Jack's favorite song before the album dropped back in December, so I've been ecstatic for this moment for months. Shoutout EST Gee, one of the dopest street artists I've heard in a very long time.

I set this post up before the premiere of the video, so I hope it's as dope as I think it will be. Enjoy.

Frank Jordon - Magic (prod. Mantiz)


I meant to post this sooner, but Spotify was trippin' HARD. 

I've received phone calls, text messages, FaceTime calls, and social media DMs telling me how much they like Frank after "On The Way" and "Slide". Folks going as far to say we were "2 for 2" with consistent good music. 

Well I'm gonna be the confident one and say we're 3 for 3 now. "Magic", produced by yours truly, finally available EVERYWHERE online now. Thank You For Listening.

Frank Jordon - Slide (prod. Mantiz)


I had been sitting on this record for a few months now... Frank was eager to give it to y'all, so I decided it was time. The very first release of the New Year, and the second release for Frank Jordon. We have more on the way, and a LOT more in the stash. He says we're Kobe and Shaq... I'm not sure who's who, but we definitely make a dynamic duo. 

"Slide" available everywhere now. Thank You For Listening.

Frank Jordon - On The Way (prod. Mantiz)



Allow me to introduce you all to my new artist, Frank Jordon. We've been working closely for the last year or so, and I added him to The Block Symphony as a songwriter. With me recently starting my label, I found him a real home. The kid really has a vibe about him. And before the year ends, we just wanted to give y'all something to let you in on what's been going on.

This isn't a single... with a major rollout... with a huge budget. This is simply just a drop. Something to help you get more acquainted. Thank You For Listening.

Jack Harlow - Route 66 (feat. EST Gee) (prod. Jetsonmade, Neeko Baby, 1st Class, Mantiz & Foreign Teck)

One of my proudest moments. I'm happy as HELL to be a part of this masterpiece. I'm certain to succeed as at least a producer/songwriter, I need a hit single. That's one of those things where it's out of my hands until it isn't, but I feel like I helped produce the best song on this album. 

Even the footage of Hassan Whiteside reacting to the line in the song is a flex for me.

Thank You For Listening.


 

DaBaby - Bidness (feat. Toosii) (prod. Jetsonmade & Mantiz)

I've noticed how I haven't been posting when I land a few placements. I deeply apologize. I'll have to go back and edit those in. For those who don't already know, I co-produced "Gospel" for DaBaby's second album "KIRK" alongside my brothers Jetsonmade and 1st Class. We made that beat and Rico Nasty's "Fashion Week" in my living room back in July of 2019.  Life has been pretty hectic since then.

This was one of those joints where Jet reached out to me and asked about the quartet singing style used in "The Fighting Temptations" barbershop scene. He asked me to just create some harmonies (how I would) and he handled the rest. I didn't expect the song to be placed on such a somber project, but I'm thankful for the opportunities nonetheless. Thank You For Listening.
