MBNel has always been one to keep it 100 when it comes to his lyrics and his latest song pays homage to his latest trip to the Philippines. During his visit to the motherland, the Stockton based MC stayed far away from your average tourist spots and went to connect with his roots authentically. The rapper's latest music video for "Just Like You" depicts him hitting Manila and giving back to those in need. Watch MBNel's latest music video below!

MBNel’s newest song is a tribute to a fan he met who later on tragically took her own life. “Fadeaway” is a track that talks about depression and suicide over a minimalist piano and guitar instrumental. The single also features the Filipino-American artist singing instead of his traditional rapping style.

Talking about the track, MBNel said: “As I was growing up, even with family and other friends, I’ve seen people deal with depression. This song is really dedicated to that. It is more vulnerable and something completely different from what I have done before.” Coincidentally, “Fadeaway” is released during the month of September, which is suicide prevention awareness month. Half the proceeds from the single will be donated to a mental health facility that specializes in suicide prevention. Watch his performance video below!

MBNel is a first-generation Fil-Am raised in Stockton, California. His music is inspired by his own struggles in a city deemed as "one of the most dangerous cities in America" according to Forbes Magazine. The tough upbringing allows him to use rap to shine a light on his city and illuminate hope. His latest single I Know 2 addresses the struggle of making the hard choices in life.

In his latest release of I Know 2, it is a follow up to his 2019 single, I Know. MBNel drops bars showing the variations of lifestyles. He makes the hard decisions of navigating through his career even if his whole family doesn't agree. The verses talk about being careful in making choices, but also realizing it's not possible to please everyone. However, MBNel points out that if there's no risk, there's no reward. There's no direction if there isn't a goal and that has to be the focus. MBNel continues to perfect his craft and creates lyrics that are raw and real.
