So what makes Minus P different from the other rap artist you have heard ?

Is it the Latin flavor he adds to his music?

Is it the catchy hooks he puts in his songs?

His distinctive voice?

Maybe is the fact that his personality shines through his music?

Is it a combination of all those things?

Maybe so, whatever it is, you would not think it if not for the fact that he made it so you could hear him.


Very few people are able to do what the rapper known as Minus P can do, From writing his own lyrics, to producing his own beats, to being his own manager, Manuel has, as he stated on one of his tracks, develop into “a one man record label”.

Walk around the streets of Washington Heights in Manhattan and you may still even see some of his posters for a self-released mix-tape he gave out for mere recognition!

Come back 2 years later (2005), and you will see posters for his debut CD “Welcome To The Heights” released independently November 10th, 2004.

Growing up Manuel has been a student of hip-hop. Even when he first arrived to the Big Apple in 1989, not knowing any English, he recalls banging on the lunch-room table making himself a beat, how the other kids would gather up around him to hear him rap… in Spanish!

Even with a language barrier, Minus was already causing a buzz in the streets of Harlem. Ever since he has been pursuing his passion.

As an artist his music has been featured in radio shows such as “The Wendy Williams Experience” (107.5 WBLS FM), in a major Power 105.1 contest, has worked with B-Real (Cypress Hill), performed for HALFTOOTH records, the Newark Bears (Riverfront Stadium), Jim Jones and the Diplomats as well as continues to perform various venues in the tri-state Area and being featured in countless magazines and online articles.

He is determined to make way in the music industry, often saying, “If I can’t get a record deal, I may just have to learn how to start a Record company and sign myself (As he laughs)”.

Manuel puts 110% into everything he sets out to accomplish, he lives by the words “failure is not part of my vocabulary, only success is“. He is a talented and persistent artist who believes in his craft, and will not stop until he leaves his mark on the hip-hop generation.
