Once upon a time in a galaxy not far away, there lived two kings. Each was the ruler of his own deliciously glorious planet. The first king, Manchildblack, was well known throughout the cosmos for his ethereal vocals, celestial sonics and earthy musical messages. The other king, Monstah Black, was a star in the solar system for his gravity defying performances, gender-bending fashions and spacey disposition. One magical night, an inexplicable ultra-magnetic pull forced the two planets to collide. A technicolored explosion occurred turning night into day with a feast of aural and visual delights. It was then that the universe was changed forever. Manchildblack and Monstah Black united and became The Illustrious Blacks.

Manchildblack has had a steady stream of musical releases as a dance music artist including the bangers: “We Are”, “Rain” and “Live 4 Love.” The music video for his R&B flavored debut single “To The Sky” was directed by Monstah Black and received heavy rotation on the BET spin-off channel Centric. 2012 saw the release of Manchildblack’s musical collabo with DJ Afro (Los Amigos Invisibles) titled The Copasetic, as well as the launch of his digital music label, Hype Life Music.
