New Video: Manolo Rose – “Ball Drop”

Brooklyn rapper, Manolo Rose enjoys the New Year’s Eve party of a lifetime in the new visual for his single, “Ball Drop”! In the 3 minute video, Manolo and his friends can be seen popping bottles, rolling dice in the club and of course no fun night in the club would be complete without taking a moment to capture evening’s shenanigans on Snapchat!

“Ball Drop” is the first track taken from Rose’s forthcoming project entitled The River Jordan, which is a metaphor for a new beginning in this next phase of his career. The visual was premiered by XXL and is one of his first releases since signing to Memphis Bleek‘s Warehouse Music Group/Roc Nation in August 2016. In addition to his new video, Manolo also recently sat down with Sway In The Morning where he discussed growing up in Brooklyn and did a freestyle.

Watch: HipHopDX & The Rapfest Present: Series 7 | Vinny Cha$e, Manolo Rose & D. DiYari (Produced by Hazel)


The Rapfest is proud to announce the 7th installment their cipher series and 3rd in collaboration with HipHopDX. Their formula of meshing Hip-Hop’s established acts alongside talented newcomers and producers has been paying dividends.


For this edition, The Rapfest recruited three of New York’s finest: Vinny Cha$e (Harlem, NY), Manolo Rose (Brooklyn, NY), and Newburgh, NY based newcomer D. Di’Yari as the UpNext artist. Per usual, the visuals are captured by the eyes of talented director Chris Zino of Exhibition Z.

“Rapfest is contributing massively to the music community because they are providing an accessible outlet,” says the series producer Hazel who hails from Vancouver and has worked with the likes of Akon and Sophia Grace.

Hazel’s beat perfectly infused the New York grittiness from the early 90’s while remaining ahead of the curve in 2015. This cipher takes you back to the core of Hip-Hop and proudly displays some of the best recent talent the state of New York has to offer.
