Meet The Artist:
Javier Manuel Cuevas, also known as "MaNnyBOy2" was born and raised in South East San Diego on March 28, 1992. Music has always been a BIG part of my life, I was surrounded by different music genres/ styles in the late 90's- Early 2000's.
I was a late bloomer, but once I got put on, it was all over. Its kinda funny, how it all started, I would change the lyrics to popular songs to learn the flow and rhythm. At The time, I was homeless, living in a 1993 Ford Thunderbird with my pops. The need to succeed, had me recording songs on webcams at internet cafe's and uploading them up on YouTube to create a buzz.
When I was 16, I released my first mix-tape entitled "Confessionz of A GANGster" in 2009. Heavy Grinding, it sold over 10K units in California. In the music industry, knowledge is key. At times, its not what you know, but who you know. I am a student first, I take notes and I am constantly learning the ways of the trade. Most days i have my face buried in a book/dictionary /thesaurus to expand my vocabulary.
In 2013, I signed to Sicko Records with San Diego chicano rap legend Mr. Lil One (Lil Uno), the future of my career looked promising. I was working on a Solo Album entitled "Slow Motion" which Featured Iyaz and Lil Uno, Produced By Fingazz, which was to be distributed by Universal Music Group, digital and hard copies worldwide. The album also featured a single entitled "Speed of Sound" which was produced by Steve Lobel. We parted ways after a bad business decision and i took a loss with the whole project. It's difficult for an artist that dreams about making it in the industry, to have their bubble popped and dreams smashed. I haven't fully recovered from the loss of my album, but i am starting to write music again.
Much love to the other artists/promoters/ that i was blessed to collaborate with throughout the years.
