Manus – DSGD

A guy I know once told me that being a nerd was cool, because it meant that you were really passionate about something. That’s certainly true for Manus, the LA-based rapper with an affinity for anime, comic books, and video games. The “nerdswag” loving emcee’s new video for “DSGD” features Manus shopping for action figures while rocking a Pokémon jacket, all the while throwing down his charismatic rhymes over the slinky beat. Check out the video, directed by Andrew Crisman, in our exclusive premiere here. Bonus: Manus is giving away the stems for “DSGD” for free—if I were a producer, I’d find a way to sample as many video game characters as possible in a “DSGD” remix. But that’s just me.
