The 22-year-old singer from West Oakland, California, burst into the scene last year with the buzzy single, "Uncomfortable." Currently residing in L.A., Mansa's hometown roots are clear. Growing up, he listened to "whatever my mom was playing," which included Bob Marley and John Mayer -- "of course, hyphy movement was real in my section of the world. I listened to everybody. Like the people in the hip-hop community setting the foundation, E-40, Mac Dre, et cetera."

Right before winter break concluded, I finally had the chance to link up and shoot some photos with the man, Omeez, of ISO (I Stand Out). ISO, in the most literal sense, is a collective of many talented creatives, artists, photographers, producers and nothing less than a “go getter”. Music, photos, visuals, movies, art, whatever, ISO can do it, as a group, and as a family. It’s always really cool to see so many different, multitalented individuals all working together as a team. When you're constantly surrounded by inspiration, I think it’s hard to not be inspired yourself. That was exactly why I was looking forward to finally linking up with Omeez, and the director of ISO, Keoni Mars.
