MaNIH 8'6 is an American hip-hop artist, producer, lyricist and self described lyrical artist from Southern Wisconsin. M86 endeavors to take the art of music to the next level. His unique way of bending words and phrases are fueled by an internal anguish, generated by a painful past. M86 had many damaging ways of releasing his anger in his early teens. It wasn't until a poetry unit in High School that he found his talent of self-expression. With each line his story came out through his pen, taking years of oppression, turning it into rhyme.
MaNIH 8'6's breakthrough debut album, a. D. 6, has finally landed and is exactly what hip-hop has been missing. With drive and determination M86 crafted an album from his extremely unique talent of bending words and phases out of his very painful past. With hits such as, Goin' Under, Move, waTsEd, Blow n' Dosha and Less Traveld' this album, literally, has a song for everybody. This will truly be one of hip hops most prominent artists only to mention that MaNIH recorded and engineered the entire album himself, giving the production the same unique twist he gave the lyrics.
DoublEntendre Volume One-
86 Records is proud to announce that the highly anticipated sophomore album DoublEntendre Volume One (DEVO) from the controversial midwest underground hip hop artist Manih86 (M86) is finally available for download to fans world wide. Originally set to be a DoublE disk album, M86, 86 Records and his management team made the decision to split the album in two after running into a crucial set of problems regarding the original studio sessions needed to release the album as a whole. None the less, M86 drops an incredible array of artistry as he lays out 19 tracks illustrating his ability to rap using DoublEntendre, which the dictionary defines as, “a word or expression used in a given context so that it can be understood in two ways, especially when one meaning is risqué” or simply put, a double meaning. M86 has told us that he very rarely throws together a track, but instead sometimes works weeks on song and sometimes can take hours or even days to write a single verse because of his dedication to make every bar unique and have multiple ways to interpret the lyrics. Already gaining massive attention in his home town thanks to the many notable features and instrumentals from notable producers, M86 delivers a huge blow to underground hip hop community with this album due to his verbal abilities combine with the fact that many of the projects were written recorded and engineered by M86 himself at the record label / recording studio, 86 Records, that he started as a business back in 2012. And the best part about it all is that its only the first volume of two…… and maybe more…..
To my Soundcloud fans, not just the ones who comment, like, share, replay etc, to anyone whose reading this right now, from the bottom of my heart, Thank you. My whole life I just wanted to be heard, I just wanted to be listened to without being judged I just wanted to connect with birds of the same feather and most of all I wanted to give the type of counseling I got from music when I was growing up. No one understood me like a song and when I wanted to explain how I felt or use an analogue, it was always with music. And whether its giving my cd to a person who doesn't listen to it or posting all day on FB and Twitter etc I finally found a place where people want to listen to music, be fans, and pay attention to the lyrics and not just the hook or beat. I write so you can interpret the music how you want to. I try my hardest to make the most complicated lyrics possible, to push the bar, to spit so you have to listen to it 5 times to get it, because that's who I listened to and aspired to be. So with all my heart. Thank you, the true fans have made it worth it, you've giving my art, work, poetry, songs and lyrics meaning and I'm forever grateful ~MaNIH86
