Rest In Power, Christopher Wallace: 1972 - 1997


The Notorious B.I.G.’s debut album Ready to Die was released September 13, 1994. The album was the first release on Bad Boy Records. It’s widely considered one of the greatest hip-hop albums of all time. It spawned hits such as “Juicy,” “One More Chance” and “Big Poppa.”

But only 3 years after this album debuted, and right as his second album was just about to be released, he was murdered.  He was only 24 years old.  It’s a tragedy in every sense of the word.  While many still mourn, we managed to put together some great material below, that we feel you will enjoy, be it old, or new fan.

Rest In Power, Malcolm X: May 19th - Feb 21st


During Black History Month, everyone here at Manifesto, enjoys taking the time,
to salute the greats whenever we can.  On February 21, 1965, Malcolm X was gunned
down at the Audubon Ballroom in Harlem.  He was a man of many talents, and great courage. 
One who reinvented himself, as easily as he changed his name from Malcolm Little,
to El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz and Malcom X. Take a look at this rare Playboy interview
below, and enjoy the late poet/activist/teacher Louis Reyes Rivera, perform his signature
poem on Malcolm’s passing. Malcolm X continues to inspire so many of us 45 years later.
