Over the past few years, R&B singer Emanny has meshed well with Hip-Hop, appearing on rapper's Joe Budden's mixtapes and beyond. Now, he's officially signed to New York artist and industry vet, Jadakiss, and is prepping his latest mixtape, Songs About HER.
AllHipHop.com caught up with Emanny, and he talks his new game plan, working with Joe Budden and Jadakiss and reintroducing himself to the game.
"Some of the records most might know me for are "Hold You Down" and "Cuz We Paid" by Jadakiss, "One Last Time" by Emilio Rojas and "All Of Me" and "Dreamerz" by Joe Budden, but my debut project [Songs About HER] is what I want people who have no clue who I am to base me off of, and also a way of reintroducing myself to people who are aware of my work."
Not just a performer, Emanny is an all-around musician, operating as a vocalist, songwriter, and arranger. Not just singing songs, Emanny reveals this project is more than just music, it's personal:
"This project will give people insight to who I am personally as well, being that the music is based off my life experiences with loving and living."
On working with Jadakiss, Emanny reveals it's the best thing that's happened in his career, saying:
"It's been one of the most reassuring things to have happen in my career so far. When a guy who has hits, worked with the best in the business and has lasted this long, and keeps himself relevant calls upon and believes in my talents, it only lets me know that my gift is truly appreciated, and that I'm viewed to be equally as talented and promising as any other big name in the game.
"Jadakiss is a living legend, and for him to not only see the potential in me and my music, but to also want to be a part of it and invest in my gift, is a blessing," he added.
