Kareem Abdulla Davis (born January 29, 1982), better known by his stage name Mansone Batez, is an American rapper from the Bronx, New York. With a solid fan base in the underground hip-hop community, Batez is known for his lyrical storytelling and passionate gritinfused delivery. Doug E. Fresh, hip-hop pioneer and legend, has served as uncle and mentor, inspiring Batez throughout his career. Fresh describes his nephew as an “incredible lyrical talent and showman with a style that has evolved but stayed true to the essence hip-hop.”
Batez formed his first group, The Hoodz, at the age of 15 with three childhood friends. The group put out two singles and performed together throughout the tristate area. Although the members went on to pursue solo careers, Batez was given a sample of what it is to be an artist and injected with a new found love for the craft and passion to perform. He signed his first record deal, at age 18, with International Bad Boy Records, which soon became Blunted Records. Batez was further developed, but never released an official album during his contract. He did, however, gain valuable insight into the industry and afforded the opportunity to tour with respected artists such as Prince Markey D, MOP, Grand Daddy IU, and Original Flavor.
By this time, the name Mansone Batez had definitely created a buzz and started a following in the local rap circle. Batez’s talent soon became undeniable to his uncle Doug E. who eventually took his nephew under his wing. Batez began working closely with his uncle and The Get Fresh Crew, even co-writing Doug E.’s fourth album, Play, which was released on Gee Street Records in 1995. Produced by Frankie Cutlass, Todd Terry, and Doug E. Fresh himself, the album achieved gold status overseas with hit singles such as “Where’s da Party At?”, “Freaks” with Lil Vicious, “Hands in the Air”, and “I-ight”. Batez also co-wrote the lead song for the The Sixth Man movie soundtrack, “Superstitious”, featuring Doug E. Fresh and R&B artist and radio personality, Miss Jones. The film, which starred Marlon Wayans and Kadeem Hardison, was a blockbuster smash hit and the soundtrack also achieved remarkable success going five times platinum. Batez continued to work with his uncle, but collaborated with many other talented emcees and continued looking for a label deal, eventually getting an indie deal with Cee Low Records. Shortly after signing he released his first solo single, Thuggparalized, which was followed by his first album, Trilogy. This accomplishment came with internal problems and Batez was unfortunately released from the label, momentarily defeated and unsettled.
In triumph, he eventually teamed up with a new clique, Anger-M, a group of talented and like-minded emcees dedicated to making music for the true hip-hop fans. After many successes and setbacks alike, Batez was forced to take a break from recording and deal with more immediate life situations. In dealing with those issues, Batez took that time to refocus himself as an artist and new motivation to drive his work.
In 2010 Batez reemerged stronger and with more passionate than ever before. He is currently signed to Diggy Dime Music Group, a family-owned business and up-andcoming indie label, and released his most recent album, Mr. Batez, in 2011. With hits like “The Best Thing” and “Ya Dig” featuring Don Vicious (formerly known as Lil Vicious), the album has achieved gold status overseas with over 300,000 downloads in the U.K. Batez is dangerously hungry as he continues to write and record preparing for his next album and opening shows for Doug E.
