Manifest is a collaborative project by Atlanta based emerging rap star J Alston and DJ Sirpreme of Austrailia. While an unlikely pair, the two come together to craft a telling story into J Alston’s mind. “While making this project I was in and out of a depression and my only way through it was music. No two songs display the mental state I was in more than “The Run” and “The Arsons,” said J Alston about the creative process of the project. Manifest features just five tracks with production handled by Sirpreme. Of the five records, stands outs include “Run” and “The Arsons”. J Alston is making a way for real hip hop and lyricism to become a common trend again.
