Native rapper's softer side

Area MC Maniac raps about his rough rootsListening to Maniac's second disc, "Paranormal: The War Within"--just released by Night Shield Entertainment--this softer side has taken over.

"Paranormal" is a thoughtful romp through the sadness, frustration and aborted hope that Maniac lives among on the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation.

Though the songs may show a more sensitive Maniac, you might not want to call him a "softie."

"People know who I am," Maniac says. "If they say I've gone soft, I'll punch them in the face."
