Manafest – ‘Reborn’ album review

Returning to his independent roots seems to have lit a creative fire for Manafest on the aptly named Reborn. The singer/songwriter/rapper also taps back into his hip hop roots, resulting in a collection that’s sure to hook longtime fans and instantly catch new ones up to speed. Much of Manafest’s success comes from his razor sharp skills behind the mic, in addition to a series of guest stars as diverse as rocker Trevor McNevan (Thousand Foot Krutch), the unclassifiable Soul Glow Activatur (Family Force 5), plus rappers Tedashii and Shonlock. Whether solo or collaborative, Manafest leaves listeners with themes of starting fresh through faith and all around renewal, which after more than a decade in the game, is both admirable and inspiring.
