Boss Lady and Kiki enjoyed the works of the Cleveland based photographer, which included Jay-Z‘s album cover for Reasonable Doubt, the image of Lil Wayne in the flyer above, a bloody DMX and more.
Mannion began photographing up-and-coming hip hop artists after working for famous photographer Richard Avedon. Since then, he has creatively captured the likes of Nas, 50 Cent, LL Cool J, Notorious B.I.G., Aaliyah, and more.

DJ Quik once told Mannion “the world sees hip-hop through your eyes”.
