Manhood is the debut solo album of Stic of dead prez. Manhood features stic’s stellar inspirational lyricism over a wide array of soulful beats, rich instrumentation and powerful guest vocalists.
Manhood marks a shift from the politically aggressive sound that dead prez’s lets get free embodies and offers a more personal maturing reflection on what it means to become a well rounded Man of admirable character and values in the face of social challenges and personal growth.
Stic sets the tone for a motivational, candid and constructive soundtrack for appreciating and being a Man; a Man of purpose, a Man of action, a Man of the People, a Man of the House, a Man of integrity, all while redefining what it means to keep it hood; as in ManHOOD.
Manhood is a rare authentic musical moment fusing Hip Hop Soul Jazz Funk and Folk inspired grooves from one of hip hop’s most respected emcees and producers. Manhood provides a soundtrack for getting your grown man on in an authentic way and encourages success and self determination in service of the community. It’s a young G’s perspective with beats that are hard enough for the streets, yet soulful enough to wash the whip and ride out to, smooth enough for Sunday cleaning and spiritual enough to inspire reflection and motivation for self determination and success.
