The name is Manuel A. Ortiz. But the alias is Sparatic "The Messiah". I'm 19 years old and I live in Santa Paula, CA. I'm one of many local artists trying to 'come up'. I love music. In my beliefs music is a divinity that fuses with all emotions. My music is about many topics. I'm probably the most versatile MC in the area. I can cover just about every aspect of the game. I'm up for collabs with ALMOST anybody. I've been making music since i was about 15 years old or so. I've been known as MC Nasty, Maniac, and now to my current name: SPARATIC. I've been a part of groups before but solo is the way my heart says to go.
Music is more than just something to bob your head to. I express different states of mind thru instrumentals. I do in fact sometimes (not EVERY time) borrow beats used by other artists, but this is no big deal because sometimes I hear an instrumental and feel the sudden urge to either surpass, create a new message within, or continue with the message on selected instrumentals I borrow. But I dont ALWAYS borrow beats. I speak through metaphors, similies, alliterations, personifications, rhyme, rhyme schemes, plays on words, and other characteristics of poetry. That's basically what music is. Poetry in motion. I advertise different events, emotions, and topics that occur in my life. I do NOT gangbang on wax & I am NOT studio gangster. Leave street life to the streets because music is a precious divinity that shouldn't be tainted by ignorant imbissiles that can't comprehend our messages. Listen closely and understand my lyrics. Intellect & Emotions stained onto Instrumentals. I'm always looking for ways to improve and different styles to add to my arsenal. Versatility, Loyalty, and Honesty is the way of the game, and I'm just abiding the rules. I try to stay away from beef as much as possible, but nobody's perfect. I have my own home built studio that I created myself. I run the record label ONE MIC WRECKORDS. So if you want to join the label, get at me with a message talking business. If you want to collaborate then message me. But if you want studio time hit me with a message because I do charge for time. If you need anything else, you know what to do. One love, One passion, One Mic
I have performed at big & small parties, quinceneras, high schools, colleges, rallies, and other types of venues. Along with a close friend/collaborating artist, Rayce, I now book and manage my own shows. Usually at Rock City Studio in Camarillo, CA.
I had my biggest influences by 3 artists: BONE THUGS-N-HARMONY, TUPAC AMARU SHAKUR & UNFADEABLE E.R.G. These 3 artists have inspired me to be the artist I am today. In their own different way, each has shown me a new meaning to music. My idol in the music business would have to be Unfadeable E.R.G. He pretty much mentored me when it came to music. He's what I would call a real icon. He relies purely on his own abilities. I'm just trying to do my thing and maybe one day you'll know me as Unfadeable Sparatic.
