MP3: @TheManorail feat. Punchline (@PunchlineNYC) & @SadatX – Habitat
NYC production/emcee trio The Manorail have released their first official single “Habitat“. Available as a free download below, the track features hard-body bars courtesy of Punchline & Sadat X. Composed of Shish, Atrane, & Sed, the trio aims to capture the boom bap Hip-Hop sound of their youth in New York City in the 90’s. Raised in the Rutgers Houses projects, Shish & Atrane (who are actually brothers) met with fellow resident, emcee / producer Fokis.
The Manorail have assembled a lengthy body of work while working behind the scenes. The group started to get some notoriety outside of their circle when they scored the music for one of the longest, most famous Hip-Hop theater productions called “Platanos & Collard Greens”. Now, The Manorail is teaming up with Fokis’ label, Loyalty Digital Corp, to release their catalog of music that goes back to the early 90’s as well as some new material.
