In this compelling video essay, or "Mannyfesto," Manny Faces unpacks the complexities behind high-profile Hip Hop-related initiatives that seem beneficial on the surface but often reveal deeper, problematic issues upon closer examination.

It's a call for viewers to critically evaluate the true impact of these events on the Hip Hop community and society at large. From Jay-Z / Roc Nation's involvement in educational programs to Swizz Beatz and Timbaland's Verzuz partnership with Elon Musk's X platform, Manny breaks down why not everything that glitters is gold in Hip Hop.
