(AllHipHop News) Manolo Rose’s latest mixtape Concrete Rose is helping the rapper become one of the New Yorkers said to be up next. While the “Run Ricky Run” rhymer represents the East Coast, he drew inspiration from hometown favorites as well as artists from other regions.
Rose spoke with Mikey T The Movie Star about two particular emcees that influenced him. The Brooklyn native showed love to West Coast icon 2Pac and Queens legend 50 Cent.
“One thing 50 Cent did for me – he created [‘What Up Gangsta?’]. It showed me that New York can also do other types of records besides the typical New York sound,” said Rose. “Shout out to 50 for that. Shout out to Queens too.”
