If you’d asked me yesterday, I would have told you that a Holy Pirate was a contradiction in terms—it’s been a hot minute since I’ve opened my Bible, but I’m pretty sure the Lord frowns upon pillaging, wenching and excessive grog-swilling. On his new single, however, MANNY manages to embody this strange combination. The follow-up to March Booth debut Visionary Music, this lyrically-driven banger finds the up-and-comer inveighing against false prophets and calling upon the spirits of late rap legends in passionate, fiery verses. Joining the headliner over Pat Streater‘s jazzy, piano-driven production, Big Apple DJ and radio personality Emilio Sparks assists on the guest tip. Like what you’re hearing? More fresh cuts await on MANNY’s A.N.B (A New Blueprint) tape, scheduled to hit the ‘net in July.
