Manzell (born October 28, 1991) is an independent artist, rapper, and songwriter from Carbondale, IL. He was born in Charleston, South Carolina, and released his first mixtape "Mercy Not Sacrifice" on June 11, 2011. Manzell first began rapping as a joke with a close friend until he was encouraged to rap personal lyrics. From that day on, he wrote lyrics that reflected where he was in his life, and if it didn't reflect his struggles or experiences, then it was out of an alternative perspective. Unfortunately, so many people listen to the Hip-Hop genre, and focus on the instrumental as opposed to the meaning of the lyrics. When this occurs, listeners miss out on not only Manzell's life story, but his own world view through a Christian's lenses.

"Yes, I am a Christian Hip-Hop artist, but every lyric I write is based off of my experiences, pains, joy, and struggles just like anyone else. I won't hesitate to share my story with anyone who takes the time out of his/her day to listen." - Manzell
