Manifest Wallace – “Blow”


“Blow” is a song from Manifest Wallace’s recent Look Around EP. The 24-year-old rapper from Sacramento shows hypnotic charm in his melodic flow, complemented well by a spacey beat propelled by cohesive percussive drops, like at 01:52. My favorite moment arrives at 02:56, with a slight sophisti-pop synth addition that serves as a concisely powerful hook. A combination of hypnotic repetition, developmental percussion, and tonally enjoyable synth additions combine with Manifest Wallace’s commendable flow for a strong track.
