Money Entertainment & War
Menace aka Bad influence is the hood favorite! Born and raised in the cradle of Hip Hop culture, the South Bronx, he brings to life stories that capture the essence of urban warfare, poverty, and systematical repression. With a strong team behind him, better known as BKS (Best Kept Secret, Best Kids Spittin, or Bronx Killa Set), Menace brings a lot of energy to his songs and live performances. As a solo artist, his grind is rarely matched. Without the help of any major labels, Menace has managed to record and distribute several solo projects titled: "Menace 2 the industry Vol. 1 (Mixtape)", "Top Shottas Edition (Mixtape)", and "Money, Entertainment and War (Album)." Aside from these projects Menace has also featured on the Best Kept compilation titled "Loyalty Respect and Honor" and The Killa Set mixtape titled "Back 2 the X Vol. 1." But it was Money, Entertainment & War that captured the attention of Dawgstarr Entertainment. Now signed to Dawgstarr, his sites are set on bringing New York Hip Hop back to the forefront. Menace has performed in various clubs and showcases through out the Tri-State area (New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut), and along the east coast from Massachusetts down to Florida. He is not just a rapper, but he is a personality, a true master of ceremony. This was made evident when he hosted the Hip Hop Uncensored Vol. 9 Showcase in South Beach, Miami. Menace also put on a great show at the Sony Epic Record Hype the Mic Talent Showcase at club 88 Keys in Woodbridge NJ, and continues to rock the mic each month at the Dawgstarr Entertainment Mixtape/Showcase at Worth Lounge in Lower Manhattan, NYC. Menace was inspired by artist such as Rakim, KRS, Kool G Rap, Biggie, Big Pun, Tupac,Ghost & Raekwon, Nas, Jay-Z, Redman, Richard Pryor, Scarface, Dre & Snoop, and Al Green. However, many feel that he fills that void left by Mob Deep, MOP, N.W.A, and Cyprus Hills. When the stars lose street credibility, they will come to Menace to get it back!
