Award-winning Pine Ridge Oglala, Leech Lake Anishinaabe and Mvskoke rapper Chase Manhattan hails from the Twin Cities of Minnesota.CEO of HustleTribe with a clothing line called Hustle Tribe. Chase couples his Native hip-hop music with entrepreneurship to represent and give back to the community that raised him. New tracks for his 2018 album "On Top of the Totem" balance hype, upbeat, and fun with more political and heartfelt material. Chase's older brother Jiman who passed away in 2009 encouraged him to put his culture in the music. Since then he's done just that, tackling topics from stereotypes to religion, with the help of his producer Nate's Beats who he's known since childhood. Chase has experienced discrimination by both Native and non-native people growing up. He now acts as a leader and mentor performing at pow wows and conferences. He lends a voice to urban Native youth with his Project Your Voice project. He also has hosted and done fundraising for the community building block party, National Night Out, in Minneapolis. As an example of success for younger artists , Chase believes in the power of branding and producing merchandise to spread love for his "tribe" and support his music
