"On the journey to kill time we all had to write 8 bars to a beat then deliver it. They all said mine was pretty good so when i got back from tour i started trying to write 'bars and it all took off from there."
Menace is influenced by artists such as Tinie Tempah & Tupac but takes great notice of Beyoncé for the way that she is able to deliver performances in a truly professional manner.

When asked thoughts on Beat100 Menace replied;
"Beat100.com is a great development, a great way to have your music heard, my views on Beat100 have already exceeded my views on YouTube! Beat100 is basically Facebook & Twitter all in one but in addition some great music/videos. Those who run it share the same ambition as the artist and will work hard in order to get you somewhere, unlike all the other money grabbing 'promotion' sites. Big up Beat100!"
