Cellar Mannequin is the brain child of one of Southeast Michigan’s most successful basement rappers. Over the years Karlos Kowaleski and his subsequent record labels have been commercially involved with some of the BIGGEST names in underground rap. The Mannequin Man has opened shows in some of the BIGGEST venues for the BIGGEST acts on the hip-hop circuit, and with the help of career long manager PJ of Ruthless Aggression Promotions has generated THOUSANDS of dollars from the rhyme power he holds. Cellar, as personalities “Dramadeus”, “Lock” of “Twofold Horror”, and Karlos of “Bat On Fire” has opened (and sometimes headlined) Main stage shows for: Menacide, Tech N9ne, INSANE CLOWN POSSE, The Outlawz, Critical Bill, The R.O.C., Skrapz, Marz, Mars, BONE THUGS N HARMONY, Mindless Self Indulgence, King Gordy, Chief, 2 Live Crew, Mushroomhead, Bedlam, Project:Deadman, V Sinizter, YING YANG TWINS, Bonecrusher, and many MANY more. Cellar Mannequin’s new album: “The Recent Future” is going to be the new archetype for basement rappers all over the world! The main focus of this project is to show the industry the idling talent that is boiling under the foundations of homes, offices, and structures all around us.
From the bottomless depths of Michigan’s Dark Evolving Underground Scene re-emerges one the most sought after emcees to vanish in recent years. After taking a year-long sabbatical, the cocooned Dramadeus has evolved into the even more potent Cellar Mannequin! CM is the next evolution of the artist; a hard hitting, head splitting, wall shaking, speaker breaking, trunk rattling, glass shattering, story telling, Industrial Hip Hop emcee.
