MANCHESTER, GB – British producer Menace managed to become a Grammy Award-nominated producer off a $200 “Meek Mill-Ace Hood type beat” at just 21 years old. It was a serendipitous transaction that turned into “Panda,” the breakout hit single for G.O.O.D. Music artist Desiigner, which later evolved into Kanye West’s “Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 2” off The Life Of Pablo. This uncommon feat happened within a time span of just two years.
The now 24-year-old producer was previously toiling over broken iPhones as a mobile technician (while also studying law) before making his big break. Menace had been making money online selling beats, but once “Panda” took over, he had a lot to learn in a short amount of time … And he had to learn it quickly.
At the height of “Panda” and The Life of Pablo’s popularity in 2016, Menace had to sit back as U.S. Immigration delved into every aspect of his life because of his government name, Adnan Khan, while opportunities to attend the BET Awards and Grammys slipped away. He also dealt with the fallout of some industry drama, specifically drawing the ire of Mike Dean.
That’s all over now though, and
