In anticipation of a new release he's offering for free on his birthday this month, Twin Cities rapper M.anifest
leaked one of the tracks to City Pages this week -- an unauthorized re-fix/remix of Shafiq-Husayn track "The U.N. Plan".
"Get Away" will appear on M.anifest's upcoming project The Birds And The Beats
, to be released for free on Nov. 20 (download after the jump).
"It's from his brilliant release 'Shafiq En' A-Free-Ka' - which is one of the best and most inspiring records I've heard this year," the Ghanaian-born rapper writes. "I've refrained to call it a mixtape because it was previously a full length of 14 original tracks i was going to release. It's now a 16 track digital-only album - 14 original tracks and 2 re-interpretations of a D'angelo track and a Shafiq Husayn track."
So why give it away free, you ask?
"It's me and my musical team's gift to the people. All hail the music-for-free movement!"
