After a skateboarding accident in 1998, Manafest took time to focus on his musical career and was noticed by Trevor McNevan of the Ontario-based rock band Thousand Foot Krutch. This led to his signing with an internationally distributed label, BEC Recordings under the Uprok Records label, and his debut release My Own Thing. The album was made primarily of hip hop music with several rap rock outings in the vein of Limp Bizkit, P.O.D. and Linkin Park. Manafest's third album, Glory, used a more purely hip hop style. On June 24, 2008 Manafest released his fourth official album, Citizens Activ, which went on to become his most successful album to date. The single "Avalanche" from his album, The Chase, debuted at No. 46 on the Billboard Christian Songs on May 29, 2010 being his highest and only charting song. Manafest's new album, The Moment is releasing August 5, 2014.
