Mr. No Name
Rodney Manalo (aka Mr. No Name) is an MC/rapper/singer and visual artist for Doyen. Born and raised in Daly City, CA. During his adolescence, Rodney has been influenced in the Hip Hop culture with his father acquiring turntables from the famous DJ Qbert and stumbling upon his mother’s cassette tape copy of Notorious B.I.G’s song “Big Poppa” when he was 11 years old. He has pursued music since 2008 during high school (Oceana) as a mediocre cover singer. A few months into singing, Rodney decided to switch gears and focused on the much more lyrical rap performances with his music. With this, he has released 2 mixtapes: “ThrowBack Tape” & “Hello, My Name Is…”. With no focused direction on his music, Rodney has now found a calling with his colleagues Mike Villa & CJ in their new music group, Doyen.
