Maniac / Press

“Eureka native Terra is the founder of Maniac Productionz, a record label/concert production crew in the making. At 18, she’s been in the game a few years, formerly rapping as Li’l Maniac. A high school dropout, she relocated to Utah briefly, then came back to her hometown. “I wish I would have stayed and graduated,” she said. “I’m working on my GED now.””

“Not much of a presence for the B-boys and girls until Friday, April 24, when Maniac Productionz present their Hip Hop 4 Change benefit for the Media Arts Resource Zone, or MARZ Project. Held at the Ink People Center in Eureka, the event will feature performances by Thic Family, DVSB inc., The Mastermindz and Maniac Krew (featuring Lil Maniac, the event’s 16-year-old coordinator). Recording her own music for four years now, Lil Maniac has started her own production company, Maniac Productionz (mind the “z”), and is now throwing her second show as a benefit for the organization that got her started. Beginning at 7:30 p.m., that show is all ages and $5 at the door.”

“By chance, the night before I talked with Lila, during a break between sets at the très cool RJA Quartet M show, I’d found a glossy mini-flyer on the Music Dept. bulletin board hyping the first ever North Coast MySpace Party. The show, assembled by local promoter Tech Williams’ Do Som Bout It Productions, is coming up on Saturday, Feb. 2, at the Eureka Vets Hall. It features DJ Hazy “on the ones and twos,” Humboldt-homegrown hyphy from North Bay Ridaz, plus young $nub from the Maniac Krew, aka Lil Maniac, whose MySpace page offers a glimpse of what it’s like to be a teen in U-freak-a in this day and age[....]I want to meet Lil Maniac some time and hear more about MARZ and all. Unfortunately I’ll be outta town this weekend so I’ll miss the big MySpace bash, where I’m sure $nub will blow it up. But it’s cool, I sent out a Friend request. I know we’ll be in touch. ”
