Lamon Manuel & Analog(ue) Tape Dispenser - Closing In

25 July 2017

Lamon Manuel & Analog(ue) Tape Dispenser’s new video for single off “Music to Feel Like Sh_t to” can’t help but evoke an emotional response.

Lamon Manuel is a keenly sharp writer, thrillingly self-abusive live performer, social media trickster, and most importantly independent rap artist from the Southside of Chicago. He was a founding member of the prolific rap brotherhoods Tomorrow Kings and FUTURE CULT LEADERS of AMERICA (FCLA).

“Rapping well isn’t easy. Rapping well while punching yourself hard in the face or being choked hard by a woman definitely ups the degree of difficulty a bit.” – Lamon Manuel

Here’s a stream of Lamon’s album, available at Soundcloud:

Just coming off a stint guesting on the Karma Kids tour with Brooklyn’s Lt. Headtrip, Lamon has previously shared the stage with artists such as Cage, Qwel, Maker, Psalm One, Mick Jenkins, Jamila Woods, Typical Cats, Rift Napalm, Serengeti, SABA, Billy Woods, Cult Favorite, B. Dolan, Elucid, Busdriver, and many others.

Chicago’s Lamond Manuel is rich in talent and lyrical complexity. Stand our tracks are Shit. Everything We Have Together Is Falling Apart., Even The King Wants To Kill The King and Emily, Panic.

I am ecstatic to hype the vivid language and intriguing noise of Lamon Manuel who is fiercely idiosyncratic and an unusual artist and performer.
