Anyone with aspirations hopes to achieve enough to make their parents proud. Yet, as Mani Coolin’ openly realizes on “Thanks Mom,” that path doesn’t come as easily as anticipated. Luckily for listeners, that unveiled realization only makes this overcast track from the Los Angeles native even more transparent.
Through starving bars and a detailed delivery, Mani thoroughly explains to his mother all the hiccups he’s facing along his uphill climb to providing for his family, offering more personal reality than most rappers would even allow themselves to consider. Given his open-book effort, we’re sure she’ll understand.
