Chris Greenwood (best known as Manafest) is a rapper from Toronto Ontario Canada.Read More...
He is also a skater, which led to his career in hip hop; after an accident in 1998, he took time to focus on rap and was noticed by Trevor McNevan of Ontario-based band Thousand Foot Krutch. This led to his signing to an internationally distributed label, BEC Recordings, and debut release Epiphany, which was made primarily of West Coast hip hop with several rapcore outings in the vein of Limp Bizkit.
He released two independent albums, Mislead Youth (2001) and My Own Thing (2003), prior to Epiphany in 2005. He has toured in Canada, the United States and Ireland to date.
His second album, Glory, emphasized rap-rock elements with more Linkin Park-esque nu metal, and included more authentic hip hop stylings.
Central themes of Manafest's music include nonconformity, hip hop culture, and walking with God.

- LyricsGet me out, (now) get me out (now)
Preacher, preacher what you got for me save my soul
See beneath, and clip my wings I'm not an angel
I try and try to be good, I bought my pride, I'm a crook
Turn the lights down, burning up the night now

Ladies and gentlemen here's your anthem,
Everyone now put your hands up UP, UP, UP, UP, UP
Now put your ends up
Can you put it up, can you raise it up
