Shai Monique - Take Your Time (prod. by Mantiz)


It's with my distinct pleasure that I would like to introduce to some, and present to others, the First Lady of The Block Symphony, Shai Monique. If you've made it to this point with me, you'll recognize her voice from all of my previous material. Today is her birthday and she felt this was the best way to celebrate.

This will actually serve as the first official single of The Block Symphony, LLC. I'm very excited, not because I produced it, but because it's very good music and I'm rather honored to have played my part. I can't wait to give you all of the music we've been working on. Trust there's more on the way. Get to know us.

Shaun Blackman - Looka Dis (feat. A.B) (prod. by Mantiz)


Brand new heat from Shaun Blackman, you all know him as SB. I had fun putting this one together. Shaun and I discussed doing some more work together in the very near future, and I think you'd like what we'd come up with.

Get used to hearing that Block Symphony tag too. More of that on the way.

Tay - Just Be Alone (prod. by Mantiz)


Me and Tay go waaaaaaaaaay back. Back to Elgin. She's from the CRIB. She was always singing, even as a child. One day she hit me and said she was gonna get serious. I simply said "okay."

We sat down and met each other halfway to create this joint. Thank you for listening.

Shon Dollar - Dripcember


Happy Birthday to my boy Shon Dollar. He just released his 10-track debut project "Dripcember", fully mixed yours truly. I enjoyed walking him through this body of work and watching him grow as an artist. I can't wait to see what's up next for the two of us. "Dripcember" available online everywhere now.

Mantiz - Thank You For Listening: Reissue

smarturl.it/tyflreissue



Somewhere between Summer 2016 and Fall 2018, I hit a bit of a rough patch. Among the many setbacks, "Thank You For Listening" was taken down from the digital stores without my consent. I never truly knew what caused this to happen, but ultimately it gave me an opportunity to go back and tighten up the sound I originally set out to capture. The vibe of the album was incomplete, but every trace of where I wanted to go musically and sonically were present. So with this project being hailed as one of my best, or simply just a fan favorite, I felt it wasn't right to move forward and have this album be just a memory for those who remember it.

Oddly enough, as I began to put the final touches on this Reissue, my creative juices began to flow again. It's officially Bo Jack season. And on behalf of this album, it's good to be back.

Thank You For Listening.

ItsAshleeTho - Knock Me Down (feat. Cheri Amor & Mantiz)



Back in is this thing one mo' gin. Been working with this young R&B artist from the city named Cheri Amor and we're currently gearing up to do some more records together. One of her joints was produced by this young producer named Ashlee, pseudonymously known as itsashleetho, and I fell in love with her sound and style and how we vibe so well in the studio together.

One day she reached out to Cheri and I about doing her first single for her as a producer release... so here it is. She got a nice long ass verse outta me too so hopefully this lasts those of you who have been waiting. Beyond that, these are two dope young talents from my city that deserve a good ear. Let that ear be yours. And as always, thank you for listening.

KG - No Limitations (prod. by Mantiz)



Yo yo!!! It's been a minute. I'm currently moving this site over to WordPress and it's a real hassle. I've been thinking about just using Tumblr instead while the best possible site gets built, but my plate is way too full. But anyway, here's a new single by the young'n KG. I worked with this kid years ago when he was about 17 and we reconnected for a few joints. More on the way.

"No Limitations" is available everywhere now.

Mantiz - Boo'd Up Freestyle


I love Ella Mai. I love the song. I love everything about it. I sat on this beat for a month because I really wanted the official instrumental, but it's still not available. So being me I had to work with what I had and aim to make something you could feel. My fiancee loves it lol... It's a dope feeling to be able to say that. I might even shoot a video so she can show off. But to everyone that wished us well, thank you. I need a white tux with some gold trim now.

Mantiz - Promise





I truly apologize for keeping you all waiting. Life has been happening, and it's really a full time job. But I'm still at it, mobbin' on the low. All the plans I previously announced are still what they are. I'll see you all very soon.

And as always, Thank You For Listening.
